LEARNING LADDER:
DEVELOPMENTAL SKILLS PROGRESSION MADE EASY

GOOD PROGRESS

Every History and Geography chapter begins with a LEARNING LADDER: A developmental skills progression written in student-friendly language. Students can track their progress up the LEARNING LADDER to demonstrate their progress in essential History and Geography skills.

GOOD SKILLS

GEO-HOW-TO and HISTORY-HOW-TO sections scaffold the skills required for students to progress up the LEARNING LADDER. This section is designed for quick reference and includes worked examples and annotated sample answers. A separate Geography Fieldwork chapter focuses on this critical skill.

THE RESOURCE YOU HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR

GOOD TEACHING AND LEARNING

You told us that your two biggest concerns were ‘timetable squeeze’ and finding a resource that values skills and concepts over content. We listened and we created Good Humanities for YOU!

GOOD ASSESSMENT

Every History and Geography chapter ends with a MASTERCLASS. Here students can show their progress by responding to activities at one or more levels of the LEARNING LADDER.

CURATED TO MATCH YOUR TIMETABLE

GOOD HISTORY

Stunning visual content, primary and secondary sources and timelines are combined with brand new content to engage and educate your students. Skills are kept at the forefront with differentiated LEARNING LADDER questions on each spread and a link to a HISTORY-HOW-TO page to further scaffold each historical skill. KEY EVENT and KEY INDIVIDUAL spreads will engage and delight young historians.

GOOD CIVICS & CITIZENSHIP

You don’t need to teach standalone Civics & Citizenship units to cover the curriculum! Good Humanities has been engineered with a simpler and better solution. A Civics & Citizenship lesson appears in most Geography and History chapters so you can meaningfully cover multiple learning outcomes in the one lesson.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED, BUT NOT A WORD MORE

GOOD GEOGRAPHY

If you are doing more work than your students, nobody is learning! Geography is an active subject that comes to life in Good Humanities. Stunning visual content including maps, graphs, photographs, satellite images and geographical illustrations is supported by just the right amount of content.

GOOD ECONOMICS & BUSINESS

You don’t need to teach standalone Economics & Business units to cover the curriculum! Good Humanities has been engineered with a simpler and better solution. An Economics & Business lesson appears in most Geography and History chapters so you can meaningfully cover multiple learning outcomes in the one lesson.
