About the authors

History Transformed equips students with powerful tools and skills to analyse and interpret the past, and to make a connection between history and its relevance to their lives. 

Affordable and comprehensive
Our affordable Stage resources offer great value for money without sacrificing the depth of content needed to master historical concepts and skills. All syllabus topics are covered for every Depth Study, with selected topics provided in digital-only format to ensure that the print books can be both comprehensive and manageable for students in Years 7–10. Site studies are also included for every topic.

Exceptional source analysis tasks
A wide range of primary and secondary sources and accompanying source analysis questions have been carefully selected to encourage students to engage with historical skills in context, including using multiple sources – an essential history skill in higher levels. Additional digital sources include custom-made videos, widgets and image galleries to extend content beyond the capacities of the printed textbook and broaden student understanding of how to ‘read’ a source.

Genuinely reflects the spirit of the NSW syllabus
History Transformed for Stage 4 and Stage 5 has been written by experienced NSW teachers who bring an empathetic understanding of the curriculum and of the needs of today’s history classroom to the entire resource package.

  • Overviews are presented in the text as engaging double page spreads with timelines and maps at the start of each section, and more detailed videos that students can watch in class or at home. Further overview material is integrated where appropriate, with each chapter containing at least one activity that explicitly draws on overview content.
  • Concepts and skills development are embedded throughout the course in a range of activities that help students to make the necessary connections between the skill and the subject matter. These activities are tagged with the relevant skills and concepts being addressed so that teachers can ensure all syllabus areas are covered.

A huge range of activities and assessment tools

  • A range of activities throughout each chapter clearly address syllabus skills and concepts in context. Skills developed across the series are taught with increasing levels of challenge as students progress through the textbooks. Review questions at the end of each chapter section address revision of content covered. These questions have been carefully written to move from recall through interpretation to argument.
  • Visible Thinking Routines inspired by Harvard’s Project Zero promote student engagement, understanding and independence. Each chapter begins with a Visible Thinking Routine for initial engagement, while an optional end-of-chapter activity encourages students to reflect on what they have learned throughout the chapter.
  • Other end-of-chapter activities include extended response questions, groupwork and research activities, a creative task, and a cross-curricular task, giving the teacher a wide range of choices when deciding how to consolidate learning for their students.
