A teacher's resource to accompany the students' entry level textbook for SHP GCSE or Certificate of Achievement. It covers the essential concepts and content required for examination success in SHP's Medicine and Health development study.
This teacher's resource book provides guidance on using the student's book and practical help with differentiation upwards and downwards. It also includes a set of photocopiable revision notes that can be used across the entire ability range.
Each chapter in the student book deals with a chronological period from pre-history through to the 20th century, selecting a few topics from each period in order to build students' overall understanding of the following:
* public health - did people's lifestyles help them stay healthy?
* causes of disease - what did people think caused disease?
* treatments - what treatments did people use and how successful were they?
* doctors and healers - who treated the sick?
* important people in medicine - who helped to change things with new ideas or new treatments?
* change and continuity - what factors got in the way of change? What factors made change possible?
