Think more deeply and work more independently at A level History through a carefully thought-out enquiry approach from SHP.
Enquiring History: It makes you think!
The OFSTED report on school history suggests that the current generation of A Level students have been poorly served by exam-based textbooks which spoon-feed students while failing to enthuse them or develop deeper understandings of studying History
The Schools History Project has risen to this challenge with a new series for the next generation. Enquiring History is SHP's fresh approach to Advanced Level History that aims:

- To motivate and engage readers

- To help readers think and gain independence as learners

- To encourage enquiry, and deeper understanding of periods and the people of the past

- To engage with current scholarship

- To prepare A Level students for university
Key features of each Student book:

- Clear compelling narrative - books are designed to be read cover to cover

- Structured enquiries - that explore the core content and issues of each period

- 'Insight' panels between enquiries provide context, overview, and extension

- Full colour illustrations throughout
Web-based support includes:

- Lesson planning tools and activities for teachers

- Dynamic eBooks for whole class teaching or individual student reading

- Exam advice for each specification
The French Revolution
This title covers the turbulent history of France from 1774 to 1802 and the revolutionary events and larger than life individuals whose ideas and actions sent shock waves around Europe. Each enquiry tackles a discrete topic which together build a rounded and balanced picture of the causes, the course, the consequences, and the historiography of the revolution. As William Doyle puts it: 'There are few periods in history when so many benevolent intentions led to such unintended chaos and destruction, ...'How and why did this happen? What can we learn from it? What has the French Revolution got to say to us today?
Web-based support includes
- lesson planning tools and guidance for teachers available from the SHP website http://www.schoolshistoryproject.org.uk/Publishing/BooksSHP- eBooks for whole class teaching or individual student reading available from eBook retailers

An A level text that isn't produced by an exam board is always very welcome - this is very readable without being too simplistic (as some texts are). Challenging but accessible - I'll definitely keep a look out for more like this. * Amazon reviewer *

For anyone studying the French Revolution for A Level, I really recommend this book. It breaks everything down into easy chunks. I struggled keeping up with the changing governments, but there's a page about this... More
