What are teachers saying about the Jacaranda History Alive series?
“Jacaranda is clearly written and covers all topics, skills and understandings thoroughly. The tasks also have a great range of resources to refer to and add breadth and depth to the material already included. It also allows for ease of differentiating tasks.”
Teacher, Prospect High School
“We have been using Jacaranda resources as JacPLUS Bookshelf on student iPads for several years now. I find the Humanities textbooks in particular are engaging and of a high quality.”
