This comprehensive, landmark series is the only one to have been developed specifically for the Jamaican ROSE Curriculum at the junior high school level. It has been recommended as an approved text by the MOE. The first book explores Jamaica?s history and cultural heritage, as well as health and family issues. The second focuses on the land and people of Jamaica. The third book looks at nation builders, occupations and employment, consumer affairs and population issues. The final book examines citizenship and government in Jamaica. The series lays the foundation for further studies in geography, social studies and history, with scope for integration across the curriculum.

The series adopts a problem-solving and activity-oriented approach, with strong focus on group and project work. Varied forms of assessment, traditional and modern, are also employed to develop skills as well as test understanding. There are a wealth of visual stimuli, including line drawings, maps, plans, photos, graphs, tables, charts etc. The series also makes great general reading for Caribbean children, at home and abroad, who want to know more about today?s Jamaica.
