This lesson can be taught either independently or part of the unit 'Exploring Autumn and Winter Festivals' (see the unit plan for the structure of this unit here.) The resource aims to help pupils to describe the festival of Remembrance Day and to argue the importance of it. The resource can be used with S1/S2/S3 classes (Scotland) or year 7/8/9 (England) and it is designed to last 1 - 2 periods. It contains a PowerPoint to give structure to the lesson and provide a visual aid when needed, a flip chart with activities for pupils and two worksheets. The principles and strategies of formative assessment are embedded in the lesson (for example, peer-assessment, KUI) and there are opportunities for collaborative and independent learning. The resource ensures pace and challenge for learners of different ability levels in order to promote the highest possible achievement for all.
