Quick Overview

Cambridge Passage of Time : A Textbook for ICSE History and Civics : Student Book 6 English

Passage of Time-A Textbook for ICSE History and Civics incorporates the syllabus guidelines of the Inter-State Board for Anglo-Indian Education. This three-level series for Classes VI—VIII not only prepares the children for the more detailed study of History and Civics in the high school but also motivates them to do so with enjoyment interest and curiosity. Passage of Time makes use of a friendly and interactive narrator’s voice that urges children to think reflect reason and hence develop their own perspective on the various historical facts and events presented in the book. They are thus also made conscious of deeper processes that govern the writing of history and sensitised to the complex politics of representation involved in it. All the three books of the series interweave the dual strands of Indian and World History as prescribed by the syllabus. The Civics section delves deep into the immediate issues of family citizenship governance rights and duties on the one hand and the global issues of war peace security international co-operation on the other hand. It thus aims to create awareness of the goings-on of the world around while sensitising the learners to the problems or challenges inherent in them. Following are the key features of the series. • Carefully graded chapters following the syllabus guidelines • Wide range of questions to give enough opportunity to test understanding • Quiz Yourself with a wide range of MCQs for revision and self-evaluation • Interactive timeline to ensure holistic and active learning • In-text glossary to facilitate comprehension • A warm-up activity at the beginning of every chapter with authentic texts and narratives • Spadework with discursive argumentative and reflective tasks to hone thinking and reasoning skills • Tit-bits to provide interesting nuggets of additional information and to provide interdisciplinary links • Know Your Historians a feature to sensitise learners to sources and the process of writing history • Child and You a feature to help the learners connect the social issues to their own lifeworld • Ample ideas for project work and hands-on activities outside the classroom • Useful weblinks in every chapter to facilitate research.
