9th century Baghdad - city structure, learning and comparison to London

9th century Baghdad - city structure, learning and comparison to London

Learn about 9th Century Baghdad with three presentations; two about the organised city structure and the Science and Learning going on in the city at the time. A third presentation offers a comparison to Baghdad through a look at information about London at the same time. Use as a group activity to look at what you can learn from information and for identifying differences between the two cities. Ideal historical activity for a non-European study and to increase understanding outside Europe. The differentiated tasks at the end aim to allow pupils to record findings with increasing attention to detail and evidence. This is the part of the planning 'How Great Was The City Of Baghdad' and fits in with the learning tests.

WAS BAGHDAD A 'GREAT' CITY circa 900? Year 6 planning and scheme of work.

WAS BAGHDAD A 'GREAT' CITY circa 900? Year 6 planning and scheme of work.

Detailed planning with suggested power points about the city of Baghdad 900 ce. The main focus is on 'compare and contrast' and making your own decisions about the organisation of the city and intellectual activities that happened inside it. Activities include differentiated power points (comparison with London, investigations into the city) and research activities,where access to resources and computers would be useful to exploring further; like the stories in Arabian Nights and research of individuals. The outcomes of the planning focus on pupils having a greater understanding of the Islamic civilisation of Baghdad and appreciating how advanced they were at the time compared to European experiences.

Mankind the Story of All of Us Episode 6 Worksheet and Quiz: Survivors

Mankind the Story of All of Us Episode 6 Worksheet and Quiz: Survivors

56 Multiple Choice Questions to accompany Episode 6 of Mankind: The Story of All of Us Mankind: The Story of All of Us is a History Channel series that uses engaging imagery, powerful special effects, and a lively script to convey the story of the humanity in 12 concise yet comprehensive episodes. This teaching packet covers Episode 6: “Survivors," which develops three major stories: • The Salt Trade in the Sahara • The Gold Trade in Mali • Learning and Knowledge in Timbuktu • Venice as a Banking Powerhouse • The Renaissance • The Chinese Inventions of Gunpowder and Guns • The Defeat of the Mongols; The Ming Dynasty • Gutenberg and the Printing Press • Christopher Columbus • The Spanish Reconquest / Defeat of the Moors Using any of the series’ episodes in class opens up several useful possibilities. They are so well presented that they are easily understood by students. This in turn means that episodes can actually be used as an introduction to a topic or a unit. On the other hand, they also make excellent reinforcers, so some teachers will want to show the episodes after the end of a chapter or unit for use as a review or recap. ABOUT THIS TEACHING PACKET I’ve kept this episode versatility in mind when making these materials. This teaching resource contains both a worksheet and a test on the episode it covers. These two components are based on different approaches to the video: • The student viewing worksheet has 46 multiple choice questions, all presented in video order. These questions are fairly detailed. Certainly, many students will have good enough recall to be able to complete the worksheet after the episode has been shown, but because of the detailed nature of the questions, some teachers may want to use the worksheet as a “during-viewing” activity that will help students track information and stay on task . • The 10-question test, on the other hand, is designed to help students synthesize the episode’s information and see larger patterns that span different sections of it. My intent when writing the test was to focus solely on the “big issues” that arise from the targeted time span of world history. Students who have paid attention to the video should definitely have mastered these basic, fundamental issues from the targeted time period. All test questions are also multiple choice. • A fast-grade answer key is provided for both the worksheet and the quiz. MORE DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION POSSIBILITIES Because the worksheet and test take different approaches, teachers can also use them to differentiate instruction by using them as basic/advanced levels!
