9 - Industrial Revolution - Public Health Problems

Industrial Revolution:

From a Scheme of Work on the Industrial Revolution. This lesson includes two sources, a video task, a writing activity, a Quiz-Quiz-Trade knowledge acquisition task and a hot seat plenary. Also includes two EAL support sheets and a stretch writing mat.

Starts with a ‘quick start’ lesson guide. All resources easily printable from the one PowerPoint.

There are 14 lessons in total, but each lesson has enough material to last 2 or 3 lessons for even high ability classes.
Most lessons include some high-level source analysis.

The SOW has been used for several years (with continual updates and improvements) at a very successful History department in an outstanding school.

If used at KS3 it also acts as a grounding for any History of Medicine modules they might encounter at KS4 (hence the focus on public health and inventions).

The SOW covers the following topics:

  1. Introduction to the Industrial Revolution (free)
  2. Population Boom (free)
  3. Factories
  4. Coal Mining
  5. Transport
  6. Robert Stephenson
  7. Industrial Revolution inventors
  8. Child Labour
  9. Public Health Problems
  10. Public Health Solutions & Government Intervention
  11. Source Question on the Big Stink
  12. Luddites
  13. British Empire
  14. Source Question on Empire
  15. Revision Guide & EAL activities.

Hope it helps.
