Victorian Crime and Jack the Ripper ENTIRE SCHEME and RESOURCES

Victorian Crime and Jack the Ripper ENTIRE SCHEME and RESOURCES

This scheme of work was originally made for a SEN group but has since been differentiated for KS3 and taught at year 8 and year 9 to a range of abilities. Though it suits lower to mid for some activities, most lessons are easily adaptable to suit a higher ability class - particularly the Jack the Ripper case file section at the end. It has lessons on the history of Victorian Crime and Punishment, covering topics such as the Queen, the bloody code, Sweeney Todd (truth/fiction), Robert Peel, and the development of new detection methods (such as: finger prints and mugshots). Some a bit creepy or gory, so know your audience! Finally at the end is a case study of Jack the Ripper, which uses a range of original sources and offers students the chance to deduce who they think Jack was based on several possible suspects. This is themed around Sherlock Holmes for fun. There are over 200 slides and all worksheets are included. This has been a popular unit for several years at my school. There are notes on how to apply each worksheet and most slides have explanations. I’ve spent a long time developing this and the vast majority is my own work - I hope you and your students enjoy it!

Edexcel CRIME and ANGLO SAXON 1-9 Walk and Talk Mocks with Therapy.

I made this resource for my GCSE Groups and used it alongside the PiXL Smith Pro-Forma generator. If you dont have access to PiXL this still worked really well. Stage 1: Set the Exam. Students sit the examination as a formal mock exam. Stage 2: Mark the exams but not in detail. Use the included marking spreadsheet (which can be used to upload to PiXL if you have access) to RAG each question for each student. You then issue them with the therapy that matches there need. Stage 3: Issue and complete the therapy documents. Stage 4: Re-Sit the exam question which they have completed the therapy for. Stage 5: Revel in the improved outcome of your learners.

KS3 The Industrial Revolution: Children's Working Conditions

KS3 The Industrial Revolution: Children's Working Conditions

This lesson investigates the working conditions for poor children in the factories and mills of growing industrial towns. Students are provided with an illustrated fact sheet (see image) to help them identify and understand the typical day of a child worker. Students are then given a choice of three activities (for you to also chose from). Each activity has a worksheet if needed. 1: Produce a mind map for students to identify the key themes of a typical working day such as hours, health etc. 2: Produce an interview asking a child about their day. 3: Produce a storyboard for a documentary/film about the working conditions. A map has also been created which students can use as a starter to identify key types of industry in key areas of the country. This is one I have produced myself in order to make this clearer to students.
