The Tudors: Famous Tudor Explorers and Navigators - Drake, Hawkins and Raleigh

The Tudors: Famous Tudor Explorers and Navigators - Drake, Hawkins and Raleigh

The aims of this lesson are to recognise the achievements of three famous ‘seadogs’ in Elizabeth’s reign and decide which one deserves the most recognition in a seafaring ‘Hall of Fame’. Students are led through the journeys and discoveries of sailors in Elizabethan England from the Cabot brothers to Gerardus Mercator and his brilliant Atlas  giving the navigator a map where a line of constant bearing would cross all meridians at the same angle. The context for the students and sailors achievements and the problems they encountered are given through learning activities such as play your cards right, video evidence, a true or false quiz anda plotting exercise of Sir Francis Drake’s circumnavigation of the globe on a blank world map. The main task is to analyse and evaluate the achievements of Drake, Hawkins and Raleigh with differentiated resource materials. Students are given specific criteria to judge this before ultimately deciding who had the greatest impact on Elizabethan exploration. The lesson concludes with a key word game under timed conditions The resource comes in PDF and PowerPoint formats if there is a wish to adapt and change. I have also included suggested teaching strategies and differentiated resources to deliver the lesson.

Witch Child by Celia Rees - loads of bits for exploring this fantastic novel

Witch Child by Celia Rees - loads of bits for exploring this fantastic novel

A complete range of lessons and worksheets to accompany teaching the fab historical/fictional novel ‘Witch Child’ by Celia Rees. For me, this book seemed to resonate most with my Yr 9 girls groups and they really enjoyed the range of activties including reading, writing and speaking and listening skills. There are some lessons shorter than others or have been deleted due to now irrelevant mark scheme/curriculum work (including APP). I hope you enjoy this selection and please feel free to review and look at my other resources as well. Many thanks

Text is differentiated and an answer scheme is provided. Suggested itinerary: Day 1 (30 mins) – Read both texts as a class. Highlight key parts. Discuss together. What have we learned? What do we want know more about? It is worth asking the students to write down any questions they have about the texts and putting them on display. Day 2 (30 mins) – Literal sheet Day 3 (30 mins) – Inference sheet (or meaning sheet if you prefer) Day 4 (30 mins) – Meaning sheet (or inference sheet if you prefer) Day 5 (45 mins) – Summary sheet and looking back at questions from the start of the week. This is the second in a series of Paired text resources looking at the seven continents of the world. Keep an eye on my store. Differentiation: All questions are the same, which should make marking easier! However, the texts differ, with asterisks in the bottom right corner indicating the reading level.

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.

9-1 Edexcel History Learning/Topic Placemats for Early Elizabethan England: 1558 - 88 - Topic 3

9-1 Edexcel History Learning/Topic Placemats for Early Elizabethan England: 1558 - 88 Topic 3 – Elizabethan Society in the age of exploration, 1558 - 88 Written in PowerPoint (The reverse side of the placemat remains the same throughout this study unit). These interactive learning placemats were designed to meet the challenges of the new 9-1 GCSE. They build upon the successful Medicine Through Time Placemats that I previously designed (and which received 5* reviews by all who have purchased them up to the time of launching these new materials – see: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/9-1-edexcel-gcse-history-of-medicine-place-mat-question-structure-11627611 ). The new placemats have been identified as best practice during a ‘Challenge Partners’ review as well as being identified as best practice by other History teachers on the Olevi ‘Outstanding Teacher Programme’. The new design learning placemats support both teachers and students in addressing the: a) dramatic increase in the curriculum content needed for the different units b) support the need for increased literacy demands c) help students become familiar and more confident in recognising the correct response needed for the unprecedented number of different question styles The placemats are designed to be double sided. One side focuses on the CONTENT: providing an overview of key knowledge and understanding needed (this will change for each topic area within this GCSE unit). Every placemat across the GCSE range is designed to encourage greater understanding of: Historical Context - through timelines, picture prompts and key words Awareness of the ‘big picture’ so students can see how individual lessons fit into the unit and make clearer links between prior and future learning – through ‘Big Picture’ questions. Better Literacy – through selected ‘language for learning’ vocab box. Memory prompts to support revision – through the use of carefully selected images. Increased awareness of metacognition – through PME (Progress, Monitor and Evaluation Time) questions to encourage students to deconstruct their learning and identify key factors (e.g. Social, economic, political) or key individuals and make links between features. A pictorial metacognition man with 5 question prompts will support student reflection. The reverse side contains guidance on EXAM TECHNIQUE through: Identifying the nature of the question styles for each GCSE Unit and the allocated marks available Examiners levelled mark schemes Support writing frames with generic sentence starters
