“They are great resources that are developed at a brilliant level for our students."
“Jacaranda have tried and proven resources. Extremely user-friendly!”
“We particularly like the comprehensive coverage of course material and the ability to use the print version in conjunction with the online resources. The resources provide a wealth of activities, a chance to extend the more able students while allowing those students, who find schoolwork and reading more of a challenge, the opportunity to access content through well-constructed summaries, crosswords and other activities.”
“Jacaranda has been an impressive textbook publisher. It’s books are a clear representation of the NSW teaching syllabus. The textbooks provide a range of engaging activities and subject specific content. Jacaranda has been a pleasurable experience for students to understand content and place their knowledge in action through activities and additional resources. ”
“These are great resources for our needs [and] Jacaranda offer fantastic teacher support.”
“I love so many things about Jacaranda resources, in particular; the search function, the chapter PDFs, teacher resources, clear examples, questions that prompt both lower order and higher order thinking. Thank you for the great resources.”
