Pearson History 7-10 has been built from the ground up for History teachers as well as teachers who may have come from a SOSE or Humanities background. A team of over thirty practising teachers and educators from around Australia and the Asia Pacific have worked for two years to write, review and revise the subject matter to ensure a History resource that teachers and students will love.


We collaborated with the National Museum of Australia's expert affiliates to create a unique approach to addressing the Australian Curriculum cross-curriculum perspective 'Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander History'.
