Unification of Italy, 1830-1870: Garibaldi's Expedition to Sicily

Unification of Italy, 1830-1870: Garibaldi's Expedition to Sicily

A full lesson on Garibaldi's expedition to Sicily in 1860. This was used as part of a (successful!) interview lesson; the content is part of the Edexcel AS unit: Italian Unification, 1830-1870. Included is a lesson plan that details the structure of the lesson and possible questions to ask students. The starter activity involves students cutting and sticking the cards to the relevant places on the map (chronological order); they can then go back and highlight key details. Then, as the teacher goes through the PowerPoint presentation, students should be adding in further details to their sheets. Finally, a primary source has been included to relate all of this back to the exam. I have also included some teacher notes for further detail on some areas.

Unification of Italy, 1830-1870: Teacher Notes

Unification of Italy, 1830-1870: Teacher Notes

A set of teacher notes that I created over the summer in preparation for first teaching of the Edexcel unit: Unification of Italy, 1830-1870. The notes follow the order of the Hodder text book by Podesta; however, both the Pearson and Access to History books have been used to supplement this information. The date range begins in c.1815 to give some context in the run up to the 1830 Edexcel start date. This resource is intended to be used as a start point for teachers who are new to this topic; they will find even more information in the text books listed above. The resource has been created using Word 2013 in its Notebook layout, so the formatting may be slightly different if opened in a print layout format.
