The Stickman Study Guides - The Assassination of JFK

The Stickman Study Guides - The Assassination of JFK

This is a revision/study guide inspired by my own classroom experiences. My pupils have always been amused at my stickman images and I tell them that, "One day I'll make them into a book." Well, this is sort of a book. I am currently making an entire series of Stickman Study Guides for the topics I teach. They are not artistic masterpieces, sometimes the colouring goes outside the lines and you might even see the odd smudge - but that's the fun part! When I use these with my pupils I often remove the text sections, and ask them to compose what it should say. On other occasions, I provide the text and ask them to draw the image. It's up to you. They can nothing more than study notes the night before an exam. This one focuses on the assassination of JFK, in 1963. Keep an eye out for the rest of the guides over the next few months.

Apartheid and Nelson Mandela

Apartheid and Nelson Mandela

A resource aimed to introduce Y9 students to the history of apartheid in South Africa, looking at origins, policies, protests (within and outside of South Africa), Mandela and his legacy. We watched Invictus part-way through the unit, but this isn't essential to the scheme of work.

Revision Plan New OCR Explaining the Modern World History A.

Revision Plan New OCR Explaining the Modern World History A.

This is a brilliant guide to help students prioritise and conduct their own independent revision for their GCSE. This gives a break down of OCR's Explaining the Modern World History A, with the Depth study of USA 1945-1975 and Personal rule of Charles I, plus War and Society and the castle study of Framlingham castle. This document can of course be adapted to fit the various other OCR modules, as and where relevant. As the new course requires so much content, we have chosen to give this to our yr 11 at the start of the year to help them build up a bank of resources in preparation for the exams in the summer. The chart allows students to complete the chart to show how confident they are with certain topics, and allows them to go back and reflect on specific areas. The aim is for them to get to point (hopefully by May) where they can happily complete the green smiley face for all of the sections; showing that they are confident with all the content for the GCSE!

Causes of Crime 1530-present day GCSE WJEC

Causes of Crime 1530-present day GCSE WJEC

Everything you need to teach this unit is here. The PowerPoint presentation covers the entire unit with class based activities built in. Pupils can take home the information booklet and use it for their revision (and if they miss lessons they can always use it to catch up). There is a test for them to complete which is based on knowledge and understanding only. This test also contains all the answers if they want to learn these off by heart. I also have an exemplar answer of the extended question in the WJEC papers which they can learn. I've also thrown in a group work card sorting exercise for pupils to compete if time allows -this can also be used in Year 8 when teaching poverty and vagrancy, and at A level.
