A teacher's book accompanies each student's book and offers 60 copymasters with a wide range of activities for all abilities. Clear, lively pages are designed to interest and create excitement about the past, whilst an emphasis on a learning pattern, through careful steps, should lead all students, including low achievers, to a real understanding of history.

This book focusses on inter- and intracultural differences in academic writing and ways of understanding. The example of primary and lower secondary history textbooks has been chosen as a rich source of cultural viewpoints, and in particular the topic of 'The Romans' as part of a common European heritage. Textbooks (and their related curricula) are examined in terms of their writing styles, the kinds of skills demanded in pupil tasks and overall objectives. Researchers working in different European countries: Austria, England, France, Germany (2 different Lander), Ireland and Italy present case-studies of 'The Romans' from their own country. It is thus possible to track cultural differences closely, and the intercultural expertise of the team also adds an informing dimension here. The writing team came together for a conference in February 2002 at the University of Bath to present and discuss their research. The book can thus be said to build on an interactive understanding of inter- and intracultural difference."
