History study in secondary school

Postby JANE SG » Thu Apr 12, 2012 12:33 pm

Anybody can help me to have a better understanding of history study in Sec.2?
My son is very poor in history (GPA 2), I hope to assist him, but my son has no textbook only the worksheets from the teacher, I have no picture of what the main topic will be covered in Secondary school,

Hi JANE SG,

Why not call to your son school and ask for the name of textbook?

You may excuse a teacher that your son preferred in use of visual and auditory development, like a colourful textbook, and he might have a better score in future.

Alternatively, you read History worksheets at first and go to popular and find the textbook yourself.

I guess, the textbook may be for lower secondary.
The Living Past: History of Ancient India, China and South East Asia
In Search of Southeast Asia: A Modern History
History Essentials The History Of Malaya And Southeast Asia
History The Ancient History Of India,sea And China (sec 1)

The below link of MOE is for your further understanding.

All the best! :smile:
