SOCIAL STUDIES TEXTBOOKS
As we started venturing into the international schools market 15 years ago, there were no standardized Social Studies series for school students. Rather they had to study whatever relevant textbooks approved by the Educational System creators. However, this caused great alienation to students from their original culture and homes in the Middle East. TESC took the lead to author a textbook series for school students regarding Social Studies. TESC later entered into a joint venture with Pearson Education to publish the books and were first distributed for the Saudi market with a sales breakthrough from first year.
The books embrace six major strands, detailed in almost 5000 learning standards all through from Grade 1 to Grade 9. The Strands included:
- Science and Technology
- Social Studies Skills
TESC is developing the initiative for Malaysia and the Far East countries with a similar series called “Regions” to bridge the gab between international students and Malaysia, and their homelands.
