This outstanding lesson has been designed to help students studying the historical controversies surrounding the campaign to get women the vote in Britain. It can be used with the full spectrum of ability and should work alongside any mainstream textbook or resource on this topic.
When you purchase this resource you will be able to download a fully editable Microsoft Word document as well as an accompanying PowerPoint. The Word documents includes aims, instructions, two heading cards labelled 'Suffragette' and 'Suffragist', along with 20 information cards that can be sorted under one of the two headings. The PowerPoint presentation is designed to help facilitate the lesson and includes aims, objectives, differentiated outcomes, starters, plenaries, information slides , sources and appropriate video clip links.
The lesson kicks off with a snowballing starter activity, followed by a brief introduction to the historical controversy. The next 6 slides describe the aims, objectives and methods used by both groups. This is then followed up by completing the card sort activity. Once this is complete, students can then feedback and then do a follow up source assessment on the topic. This optional, but I've included additional slides with a pupil mark scheme that can be easily adapted for to your own assessment scheme if necessary. At various points, I have included links to useful video clips. These can be accessed when the PP is in show mode by clicking on the play button.
