Churchill: great war leader?

Churchill: great war leader?

This lesson analyses the reasons why Churchill was such a great war leader. The starter asks students to consider a range of fabulous Churchill quotes and select their favourites and consider those which would be the most motivating in war time. Having established the popular view of Churchill, students then analyse factual information about the leader, categorising this into evidence that he both was and was not a great leader (the point being that he was not perfect). Students then listen to the famous “Fight them on the beaches” speech an annotate their own copy to appreciate the techniques at play. Using this knowledge, they then write their own motivational speech in the style of Churchill.

JFK Assassination - 18 page lesson pack

JFK Assassination - 18 page lesson pack

This is one of my most detailed resources. Students are given a pack of 15 large information cards offering information as to how and why President Kennedy was assassinated and are encouraged to write their findings on the mystery sheets provided at the end of the pack. This is one of my very best lessons and has been designed to encourage students to think, question, collaborate and take risks. During this lesson students will explore the possibility that there was more to JFK’s death than the lone gunman theory and will offer alternatives using precisely selected evidence. I really look forward to delivering this lesson each year and who knows, if President Trump releases the remaining JFK files the mystery could widen! I really hope you enjoy teaching this topic and that you find it gets your students truly acting as young Historians should.

Stalin's Russia Top Trumps Game - 61 cards

Stalin's Russia Top Trumps Game - 61 cards

Teeming with precise and carefully selected evidence my students love playing this game to boost subject knowledge. There are sixty one cards (which work best when cut out and laminated) and they are colour coordinated into categories: rise to power, purges, WWII, industry/agriculture, and culture. These cards include all the main figures you would expect such as young Stalin, Trotsky, Beria and so on but also some lesser known figures such as Maria Yudina (Stalin’s favourite musician), Vasily Blokhin (notorious WWII executor), and Mikhail Gelovani (actor who played Stalin 13 times in various Soviet movies). On each card there is a key date/event for that person, two precise statistics, and a quotation. Students simply call out a category and the person with the highest card ‘trumps’ the other, winning their card. The objective is to strip your opponent of their cards to win the game. This is a resource I am very proud of and which has received many accolades from students and lesson observations alike and which will really boost your students’ subject knowledge of Stalin’s Russia. This activity works really well as a stand-alone activity, revision tool, or starter/plenary to any lesson on Stalin’s Russia. I hope you enjoy it as much as my students do!
