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.

NEW Revision Game War and Society OCR Modern World A spec.

A very simple revision game that can be done in pairs, small groups or as a whole class in teams. Students are to roll the dice twice to come up with their coordinates for their clue on the board. They are then to respond to the clue. If they do this successfully they win the points on the dice. If they are able to give examples and discuss for 30 seconds their scores can be doubled. I often do this kind of activity as a class with them in teams. If a team can not answer, then they must hunt out the examples before they can rejoin! A fun way to bring in and cover lots of content as part of the revision process.

Card Sort Source Analysis - Was Robespierre a hero or villain?

Card Sort Source Analysis - Was Robespierre a hero or villain?

This innovative and creative activity has been carefully designed to help students assess the role played by the revolutionary leader Robespierre during the period known as the Reign of Terror in the French Revolution. This activity involves giving students ten primary sources and four secondary sources written by historians and sorting them under the headings of hero or villain. Once this has been complete, students can then have a go at answering the question: How far was Robespierre a hero who saved the revolution or a villain who betrayed his own values to take control of France?’ I would recommend that this resource should be used with either a core or advanced group as there is a lot of reading, which would be too much for a foundation group with low literacy skills. If you are looking for something a little easier, I have made a another simpler card sort which just looks at the facts. This can be bought separately. This resource makes a great starter or plenary to completed in pairs or groups. It can be cut up the students or placed into envelopes for use with several classes or even set as a piece of homework. Alternatively, your students could draw a table with the two headings ‘hero’ or ‘villain’ and list the sources under them. The aims and objectives are: Theme: The reign of Terror Know: What sort of man was Robespierre? Understand: Why are historical events interpreted in different ways? Evaluate: Was Robespierre a hero who saved the revolution or a villain who betrayed his own values to take control of France? WILF - What Am I Looking For? Identify and describe: Which sources support / disagree with Robespierre being a ‘hero’ or ‘villian’? Explain: Why were Robespierre’s actions controversial? Analyse: Was Robespierre a hero who saved the revolution or a villain who betrayed his own values to take control of France? If you like this resource then why not check out my other resources on this topic in my TES shop, where many have been bundled together to provide you with further savings. You can also follow ‘The History Academy’ on Twitter, Google Plus, YouTube and Facebook for the latest updates or even to get in touch and chat about how you have used this resource or to ask questions.
