Why choose this series Making the connection between history and its relevance to the lives of today’s students, the Stage 6 Topics in Modern History series has been written specifically for the new NSW Modern History syllabus to help students develop the key historical thinking and writing skills required for exam success and beyond. •

Each chapter has been carefully structured to develop an understanding of syllabus topics and sections, combining a narrative approach with a range of historical sources and source-based activity questions to develop a deeper understanding of key syllabus content.

Comprehensive exam preparation support enables students to consolidate and reflect on their learning through end-of-section summaries and exam-style questions that directly address the syllabus outcomes and encourage students to think and write like an historian.

Valuable comprehension and revision tools are featured throughout, including timelines of key events, maps, diagrams and explanations of key personalities, groups and terms.

Inquiry-based questions at the beginning of each section foster a deeper understanding of content and aid comprehension. The text has been carefully structured to guide students to answer the question when they reach the end of the section.

A range of engaging activities help students think like historians and ensure they are meeting course requirements. The activities allow students to apply their knowledge of historical skills and concepts and to practise key writing skills for assessments and exams.

The Interactive Textbook provides rich digital content such as video footage of historical events and personalities and digital activities to bring modern history to life.
