Social Studies for CSEC® Examinations

Janey Fisher
Ivan Waterman

Social Studies for CSEC® Examinations has been completely restructured, revised and updated in line with the current CXC syllabus requirements. It includes a great deal of new material on the family, Caribbean co-operation and regional integration, and the political, social, cultural and environmental challenges we face in today’s Caribbean, such as the prevalence of drugs and violence, the growing problem of AIDS and the interaction of tourism and natural resources.

Now in full colour, key features include:

  • Each chapter includes a detailed list of objectives and a glossary of the terms introduced
  • Information boxes and case studies provide an alternative or complementary approach to the topics
  • There are a large number of graphs, maps, diagrams, photographs and other illustrations which complement and extend the text
  • Varied and innovative activities provide opportunities to develop important information skills such as interpreting tables and graphs or diagrams, carrying out surveys and doing research
  • Debates and discussions are suggested to encourage students to think about the challenges faced by both individuals and communities/nations in the 21st century
  • Each section concludes with a revision test along the lines of the papers set for the CSEC examinations, including both multiple choice and structured questions
  • Guidance is given for the SBA, including a sample project
