Rich with activities, exercises and practical tasks to support learning and help apply theory to practice, Teaching Humanities and Social Sciences in the Primary School is also accompanied by a digital support package, to help pre-service teachers strengthen their subject knowledge and test their own skills with additional activities, downloadable resources, revision questions and interactive tools.
