History Skills - The Social Studies History Toolkit ~
Students with history skills are always in demand by those hiring in the workforce. Modern employers want staff who know how to think and how to prepare, present and evaluate their thinking. These skills are contained in this book. The New Zealand Curriculum recognises that all students should have the opportunity to develop essential skills. As well, with increased web, there is a need, across all curriculum levels, for students to acquire skills that enable them to be fast and accurate researchers and processors of information. This book presents key skills for such effective research. Ideal for students going on to begin their NCEA Levels. This book prepares students for NCEA by demystifying the terminology and introducing terms such as 'evidence', 'format', 'style', 'perspective' and 'enquiry'. Written for the NZ curriculum.
