Forms part of the series developed to make source-based, active learning in history accessible to less able students. Each title fulfils the requirements of core units of the National Curriculum at Key Stage 3. This book deals with the causes and effects of a changing Britain in the 19th century.
This title forms part of the history series which has been checked and revised by a remedial specialist to meet the needs of less able pupils. Presentation, language and activities have all been structured both to satisfy National Curriculum requirements, and to be accessible to those students for whom the majority of NC materials are dense and intimidating. Steve Buxton is also the author of "The Invaders" and "Medieval Times", both part of the "Action History" series, and co-author of "Castles and Cathedrals".
