Humanities and Social Sciences


Jacaranda will be publishing Jacaranda Humanities and Social Sciences 7-10 for Western Australia in 2017 for use in 2018. Available in print and a brand new digital format, the new edition comprehensively covers the Western Australian Curriculum.


Four trusted Jacaranda Humanities and Social Sciences titles in one complete package


Combining quality content, a “learning made visible” framework and an exciting new platform, Jacaranda provides new and better ways to dramatically improve teaching and learning. To meet the needs of all schools, the Jacaranda Humanities and Social Sciences series will be available in print and digital formats.

Jacaranda is introducing a brand new eBook powered by learnON, the immersive digital learning platform that replaces eBookPLUS in 2018. learnON transforms trusted Jacaranda content to make learning more visible, personalised and social. For teachers, learnON includes additional teacher resources such as quarantined questions and answers, curriculum grids and work programs—no separate eGuide purchase is required.

For customers not ready to make the transition to digital-only learning, the Jacaranda Humanities and Social Sciences 7-10 series will be available as a familiar print textbook. The print editions also include an activation code for learnON so schools can take advantage of the benefits of both formats, and see how learnON makes it easy to start or progress their digital teaching and learning journey.

To complement the series, myWorld Atlas and myWorld History Atlas are available for Years 7-10.

Learning made visible with learnON


All titles delivered by learnON align with the Jacaranda “learning made visible” framework.

This evidence-based pedagogical framework has been carefully constructed to make learning visible to students, teachers, schools and parents. At Jacaranda, we believe that making learning visible ensures that no student is left behind and no student is held back.

All Jacaranda Humanities and Social Sciences titles delivered by learnON provide:

Diagnosis – pre-test (for)

learnON includes a pre-test to determine students’ proficiency before they begin a new topic of study

Learning goals

Taken directly from the curriculum, learnON includes clear goals outlining what students will learn in each topic

Practice (as)

learnON enables practice through the completion of questions and particular activities, directly in the learnON platform

Rich instruction

learnON includes theories, worked examples, videos, interactivities, discussions, activities, group work, investigations, practical tasks and more

Feedback

In learnON, students receive feedback from a number of sources including the platform (via worked solutions and auto-marked questions), their teacher or peers

Remediation

With visibility of students’ results, teachers can easily identify less abled and/or weak performing students in learnON and provide remedial exercises

Acceleration (Vertical)

Teachers can accelerate students in learnON, assigning work beyond the level they are enrolled in (for example, giving a Year 7 student Year 8 work)

Extension (Horizontal)

learnON enables teachers to extend individuals or groups of students, providing work beyond the curriculum, including their own material

Collaboration

learnON provides opportunities for offline and online collaboration, from the entire title level down to the subtopic and even specific content level

End of topic formal test (of)

Teachers can use the quarantined topic tests in learnON as summative assessments, to be completed online or used as offline printable tests
