Opium Wars' Impact - 20 page lesson pack

Opium Wars' Impact - 20 page lesson pack

This is one of my most detailed lessons and one which students love. After a quick starter activity about the significance of the poppy in British-Chinese relations the class read detailed background notes before being issued one of 23 character cards. These range from tea-magnate Thomas Twining to Confucius! In role the students then extract evidence which their character might use to explain how China became to be ruled by foreigners after the Opium Wars. I always follow this up with either a piece of extended writing or even better a debate. Please watch the short video clip attached to see this lesson in action. The lesson includes a separate plenary Power Point also. I hope your students will gain as much from this lesson as I know mine always do. Enjoy!

Slave experience - 9 page lesson pack

Slave experience - 9 page lesson pack

In this lesson students work through background information before completing a card sort to show positives and the many negatives of slave life from getting off slave ships through to working on plantations. Students need to place the events in a chronology in order to recount a story of the conditions and place them on an emotional rollercoaster graph to show which conditions they felt were the most horrific and why. This is a powerful lesson which should be taught with great sensitivity and a flavour of which can be experienced in the video file attached.

Abolition of slavery - 7 page lesson pack

In this lesson students read through background information before reading through the extremely detailed evidence cards which they break up into the following factors : the role of abolitionists, economic reasons, and the role of enslaved people. From this scaffold students can then create a piece of extended written work and this lesson works really well as assessment preparation also. Please watch the short video to see just how well this set of resources works in action and in the classroom and I hope your students get just as much out of it as mine.

Jack the Ripper identity - 19 page lesson pack

Jack the Ripper identity - 19 page lesson pack

This is one of my most detailed and most enjoyable lessons. Students are issued with a suspect character card of their own (there are 21 including Druitt, Kosminski, and Chapman) and then have to siphon their way through 13 very detailed pieces of evidence to find information that suggests they might be the notorious serial killer. For example, Polish butcher John Pizer might argue that he is local (Evidence A), has an expert knowledge of anatomy (B), and came from Poland where there were a large number of Jews (Evidence L). Students then present their cases and the class vote on who makes the best case. This is an excellent lesson designed to engage students and get them to question evidence, structure, and present their findings. I hope you enjoy it as much as my students do!

Fully resourced Scheme of Work on Jack the Ripper and a wider study into Whitechapel and Policing. The scheme has been planned with differentiated questions on the flipchart denoted by colours: Blue for lower ability Green for middle ability Purple for higher ability The way I use these is to challenge students to work as high up the scale as they find they are capable. Students are to learn about different types of sources which have different uses to historians and their limitations as well. This scheme could be used for the KS4 Crime and Punishment Section A but would need some supplementing with further detail on Policing, Society, Robert Peel etc.
