History Detectives - Asking and answering questions

History Detectives - Asking and answering questions

Two easy to use lesson plans based around the concept of asking and answering simple historical questions - why, when, where, what, who, how, can, do. Designed to get Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 children thinking about the key questions they should be asking when carrying out investigations about the past, these two lessons take the children, step-by-step through the process of thinking about why we need to ask questions, how to ask questions and how to answer them based on evidence. They aren't period specific, so please feel free to adapt them to your circumstances. Aims and success criteria are included, as are downloadable resources to help you construct a lesson. All you need is here to get you going and start being creative with your thinking.

'Tess of the D'urbervilles' A-Level Knowledge Organiser

'Tess of the D'urbervilles' A-Level Knowledge Organiser

A two-sided A4 knowledge organiser for A-Level students studying 'Tess of the D'urbervilles'. It contains a bank of key information that relates to each of the AQA assessment objectives. My students have found it extremely useful as a quick reference point when constructing essay plans, particularly to ensure they are hitting all the assessment objectives. It is also an excellent revision tool. This was printed off and laminated.
