Nanny and Sam Sharpe - Freedom fighters and Slave Rebellions in Jamaica

Nanny and Sam Sharpe - Freedom fighters and Slave Rebellions in Jamaica

This highly versatile resource can be used as part of a scheme of work (following on from my Toussaint L'Ouverture resource) or as a stand alone lesson. It is aimed at KS3 but contains sufficient challenge for KS4 and can be adapted down for LA KS3 (students aged 11-16). It has been designed to enable students to meet these objectives: LO: To be able to describe the actions of these freedom fighters LO: To make a comparison of their strengths and weaknesses LO: To evaluate their significance in ending slavery in Jamaica There are a range of activities contained, these include: - a very brief overview of Jamaican history up to colonisation - individual reading task that can be adapted to move students around the room - paired peer to peer teaching task - a worksheet that encourages additional detail to be used in answers (old NC level 5) - opportunity for students to set their own criteria to assess significance - opportunity for debate - ideas for homework task and plenary This lesson is ready to go once downloaded for the majority of learners, just minor tweaks needed if you want to differentiate down, or refer back to the prior learning of your class. Teacher notes included with slides. Feedback gratefully received, Ruth
