PROCESSIONS Women’s Suffrage, democracy and gender equality exploration

PROCESSIONS Women’s Suffrage, democracy and gender equality exploration

Inspired by the ideas, themes and history behind PROCESSIONS https://www.processions.co.uk/, our aim is for this resource to be a starting point for your pupils/students to explore and learn about the history of Women’s Suffrage, democracy and gender equality. We have created some simple and easy to follow activities to include in your teaching plans, which will encourage your pupils/students to develop historical knowledge and awareness of Women’s Suffrage as well as offering an opportunity to discuss gender equality within today’s context. Activities encourage responses through discussion, movement, debate, music and visual art. The resources are primarily designed for Years 5-8 in England and Wales, Years 6-9 in Northern Ireland and P6-S2 in Scotland, but they’re easily accessible for lower and upper age ranges. We want to encourage your pupils/students to explore their own views and opinions on gender equality today, as well as gaining an understanding about the importance of democracy and using your vote. Only 57% of 18-19-year olds voted in the last election (source YouGov website) and we want this project to encourage young people to vote in the future and inspire them to have their voice heard. This resource pack provides creative ideas as to how to work with your pupils/students. It is modular so it can be followed through from beginning to end or activities can be picked out and used individually. At times you might work with the class as a whole and at other times you may task smaller groups with the different activities provided. We have suggested subject links as part of each activity to help make useful connections with your teaching plans. These activities when paired with our banner-making toolkits will give your students/pupils stimuli and inspiration for the content of their banners. We would love schools to take part in the PROCESSIONS on the 10th of June, but acknowledge that this may not be possible for all, so we want to stress that this pack can be used before or after the event and used to inspire pupils, students and teachers using the themes and ideas behind PROCESSIONS. Produced by Artichoke and commissioned by 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary, PROCESSIONS will commemorate 100 years since the first women in the UK won the vote. On Sunday 10th June 2018, thousands of women and girls, those who identify as women and non- binary individuals, will form four epic processions in the four political capitals of the UK – Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London. Given green, white or violet to wear, the colours of the suffrage movement whose initials stood for “Give Women Votes”, they will together create waves of colour as they celebrate the centenary of women’s suffrage.

TELL ME ABOUT - Hitler & Nazi Germany

TELL ME ABOUT - Hitler & Nazi Germany

Please use this mat as a revision game to play in groups in the classroom. This should be printed on A3 paper and laminated so that it can be re-used. This means that students can write their initials on their square instead of using counters. The way the game is played can be manipulated. However, the main instructions are as follows (also included on sheet): This is to be played in groups. Each student has a counter. They roll a dice and move that number of places. They then have to tell or explain to the others in their group about that topic. If they manage 15 seconds, they get 1 points. If they manage 25 seconds, they get 2 points. If they get 35 or more seconds, they get 3 points. Please use a great revision resource for group work. Please also leave any feedback for future revision resources and how to improve them.

Market Place Activity: What can we learn about British society from the Titanic?

Market Place Activity: What can we learn about British society from the Titanic?

If you are looking for an outstanding lesson which ticks all the boxes on collaborative learning then this beautifully illustrated market place activity on the Titantic is a must have for those teachers looking for something engaging and different to add to their toolkit of great lessons. As you can see from the preview slides, the tasks and activities have been written to appeal to the full spectrum of ability and have been set up around the market place activity where the key slides in the PP are printed off and either pinned on the classroom walls or set out on the tables so that students move around and fill in their information on the summary sheet. This is a very proactive lesson designed to get students up, moving around, sharing and working collaboratively. I have provided additional differentiation by ‘ragging’ or grading the difficulty of the slides / sources so that the learners can chose their level of challenge. When you purchase this resource you will receive a twenty three slide presentations which includes a snowballing starter, information slides for the market place activity and a plenary. The sources for the market place activity looks at conditions on board the Titantic for the different classes as well as statistics on their survival rates. It is interesting to note that the myth of women and children first, only really applied to the first class passengers. I have also included a few links to relevant clips on the internet that have been carefully selected. The aims and objectives for these resources are as follows, but they can be easily tweaked for a number of different investigations on this topic: Know: What was life like on-board for the passengers on the Titanic? Understand: What can historians learn about British society from the Titanic? Evaluate: How fair was British society in 1900? Skills: Source Analysis, Cause, Consequence & Collaboration WILF – What Am I Looking For? Identify & describe: What was life like on-board the Titanic? Explain: What can historians learn about British society from the Titanic? Analyse: How fair was British society in 1900? If you like this resource then why not check out my other resources on this topic in my TES shop, where many have been bundled together to provide you with further savings. You can also follow ‘The History Academy’ on Twitter, Google Plus, YouTube and Facebook for the latest updates or even to get in touch and chat about how you have used this resource or to ask questions. We aim to produce cheap and affordable resources for either the price of a good cup of coffee or a happy meal so that you can spend more time doing the things that you want.

VOTES FOR WOMEN Homework tasks for the complete unit

VOTES FOR WOMEN Homework tasks for the complete unit

I have created this resource to accompany a six week unit on Votes for Women. It includes a knowledge organiser, lesson refelctions, a flipped learning task and a self-quizzing review activity based on the knowledge organiser. The rationale behind this is that we need to develop student ability to review and revise their learning to succeed at Key Stage 4 and these skills need to be embedded as early as possible. It also builds on research that shows regular low-stages testing aids long term knowledge retention. Please download and try it out, and let me know how you get on - I am carrying out action research on this topic so all feedback is helpful. There is a free pdf version of this document, but this will allow you to easily edit and personalise - I would love to see what you do with it.

Abolition of Slave Trade (Lesson & Assessment)

Abolition of Slave Trade (Lesson & Assessment)

A KS3 lesson on the abolition of the slave trade. This lesson asks students to consider the construction of historical interpretations, then uses a card sort to ask them to factorise key information regarding the causes of abolition. Students are set an assessment on who was responsible for abolition - a mark scheme is attached. This mark scheme is based on a level system but I have written examples below each level, which can be used with students (in feedback activities) to help them see the difference between different levels of complexity in historical explanation.
