You’ve Got This! – Book 1 app
You’ve Got This! – Book 1 comes with a free app that can be used with some of the activities as an additional support. Students can complete various surveys and questionnaires from the textbook on the app and the results will be anonymously compiled and made available to the teacher. This allows the anonymous sharing of opinions around some sensitive topics that are part of the SPHE specification.
