Industrial Revolution

Industrial Revolution: A Wolsey Academy Scheme of Work on the Industrial Revolution. Target is KS3 but all assessments throughout are GCSE and use Edexcel criteria. Each lesson contains a lesson plan, quick start guide, printable resources, mini plenaries, challenge questions, mark schemes, writing frames, lots of differentiation, a nice mix of activity types and a lesson specific EAL activity sheet. 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 lessons also include a link to a site hosting a self-marking End of Unit quiz and a revision guide which make for nice homework activities. 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: Introduction to the Industrial Revolution (free) Population Boom (free) Factories Coal Mining Transport Robert Stephenson Industrial Revolution inventors Child Labour Public Health Problems Public Health Solutions & Government Intervention Source Question on the Big Stink Luddites British Empire Source Question on Empire Revision Guide & EAL activities.

KS3 The Industrial Revolution: The causes of the Industrial Revolution Lesson 4

(0)
This lesson investigates the various causes/factors that led to an industrial revolution in Britain. Students will recap the changes that took place between 1750-1900 in a starter quiz, before being given 3 different historical interpretations about why Britain experienced an Industrial Revolution. They then use a fact sheet (previewed) to identify and understand the causes of the Industrial Revolution before deciding which factor was the most important. Students can then be led through a GCSE style causation question where they have to argue ‘how far’ they agree with a historical point of view. A P.E.E. paragraph structure sheet has also been provided to help students structure their answer to meet GCSE standards. For an hour lesson, this will likely take two lessons if used with the P.E.E. paragraphing task.

Wanted a resource that had all the key information about The Industrial Revolution all in one place. After hunting around, I stumbled upon some great information on the Woodlands Junior website, so used it to create a Powerpoint I can dip in and out of with my Year 6's - as some of mine need information split into smaller chunks rather than being faced with a whole page of writing. It isn't particularly 'flashy', but covers all the main areas that were affected during this time in Britain. All credit goes to Woodlands for the information.
