Build solid critical thinking skills - and a strong foundation for future study, including IB Theory of Knowledge. This structured, comprehensive resource develops key thinking, reasoning, planning, research and presentation skills through engaging, up-to-date global contexts. Varied activities are aligned to the 20 international topics on the latest Cambridge IGCSE Global Perspectives syllabus, and act as a springboard for discussion. The skills-focused approach fits with the ethos of the Global Perspectives course, both scaffolding students' thought processes and allowing them the freedom to explore subjects that interest them. Plus, recommendations for extended project and group work encourage students to explore their interests in greater depth. An accompanying teacher website includes plenty of up-to-date ideas for expanding on themes introduced in the book, helping you to encourage top achievement. Written by an examiner, the assessment practice helps students to apply their skills, with a focus on exam confidence and success.
