Scotland and the Great War: Technology on the Western Front (Lesson 3)

Scotland and the Great War: Technology on the Western Front (Lesson 3)

Note: All funds raised from proceeds of these resource sales will be going towards covering costs of my placement with GLP Scotland in summer 2018 where I will be travelling to Rwanda to work alongside Rwandan educators to improve educational opportunities in Rwanda! To learn more visit: https://glpscotland.org.uk/rwanda/ This is a Scottish National 4/5 History lesson on technology introduced and used on the Western Front in WWI. While the content is appropriate for experiences of soldiers from across Britain, some activities are tailored towards the Scottish examination system. As I operate a mixed class, there are activities designed for both National 4 and National 5 included within the lesson. Students will complete a carousel task on the different technologies used and developed in WWI. Students will then complete practice source questions, a storyboard activity and finally a timed exam question for those attempting National 5.

The lesson begins with a starter task on conditions in the trenches using an image to get students thinking about these conditions. Students are then introduced to features of the trench system and trench warfare, before studying four aspects of trench conditions. Students will take notes from information and videos in the PowerPoint. Students will then undertake practice exam source questions including a Describe and a Compare question. Students who finish early have the option to write a letter about the conditions from the perspective of a soldier in the trenches.

Scotland and the Great War: Recruitment (Lesson 1)

Note: All funds raised from proceeds of these resource sales will be going towards covering costs of my placement with GLP Scotland in summer 2018 where I will be travelling to Rwanda to work alongside Rwandan educators to improve educational opportunities in Rwanda! To learn more visit: https://glpscotland.org.uk/rwanda/ This is a Scottish National 4/5 History lesson on recruitment in Scotland in WWI. As I operate a mixed class, there are activities designed for both National 4 and National 5 included within the lesson. The lesson begins with background information regarding the need for recruitment, and then requires students to take notes on some of the reasons men from Scotland were encouraged to enlist. Following this, National 5 students will complete practice source questions to prepare them for their examinations. Source response structures/marking criteria are included in the PowerPoint to allow for peer marking and detailed explanation of how to gain higher marks. National 4 students will also complete source questions, however these questions can instead be used to gather a portfolio of evidence for their unit assessments, or to help prepare them to take on National 5 in the future. Other tasks include a Pals Battalion comprehension task with questions, and a 'create your own' recruitment advertisement activity for those in National 4 or National 5 students who finish early. While there may appear to be only one activity, they will be revealed through the course of the PowerPoint due to animations and so on!
