Longman Vistas 1-5 CCE Edition aims at laying the foundation of the basic concepts of social studies for the young learners. It introduces the fundamental aspects of society, politics and civic life in an interactive, light-hearted tone, in order to make learning enjoyable and stress free. By incorporating situations and examples from the learner's familiar surrounding, he/she is given ample scope to construct his/her own learning. The emphasis is on concept-building, rather than rote-learning and making learning fun as well as effective. The exercises have been structured very carefully in order to assess them on myriad skills. There are subjective and objective types of questions, questions to explore higher order thinking skills, drawing skills, project skills as well as the important life skills. At every stage the learner is invited to participate, so that he/she can imbibe the lesson whole-heartedly.
