GCSE Edexcel The American West: L5: How did US government policy towards the Indians develop 1830-51

This lesson focuses on the US government’s policy towards the Plains Indians in the period 1830-51 and how/ why it changed during this period. Students analyse four key events/ policy changes through decision-making and discussion based tasks. Using their knowledge on each policy they complete a radar graph activity which leads into follow-up tasks such as a quick fire quiz and an annotated time line. These activities set the students up for an examination (narrative style) question. These are structure strips, tips and a mark scheme included. The PowerPoint includes a step by step guide with a examples and a range of differentiated and extension tasks. This lesson will ideally be taught across two one hour lessons. These resources and lessons take many hours to plan and create, so any feedback is greatly appreciated. I hope that you and your students find them helpful.

GCSE Edexcel The American West: Lesson 4: How did the Plains Indians survive on the Great Plains?

GCSE Edexcel The American West: Lesson 4: How did the Plains Indians survive on the Great Plains?

This lesson requires students to assess the key factors that enabled the Plains Indians to survive in the Great Plains. The lessons begins with a quick intro to the harsh environment that exists on the Plains with a student-led task. The main activity is a group task (can be completed individually but I prefer group discussions and questioning). A warrior brotherhood needs to teach young recruits about survival on the Plains. They only have one hour to convey the key knowledge. Students assess four key factors, weigh up the importance of each by completing decision-making tasks & explaining their decisions before outlining how they would divide the 60 minute lesson. This lesson has plenty of scope for teacher questioning and critical thinking tasks. The lesson concludes with an exam style question (structure strips/ tips included). These lessons take many hours to plan and create, so reviews are greatly appreciated.
