This is a lesson that worked well with both year 8 and 9 this year. Pupils have worksheet with levels that they fill in as they go along. they complete the first few levels using powerpoint. Harry Enfield worked well as immidiate reaction was that it was anti women but after discussion a number of pupils were able to identify the opposite. Pupils then decided on what activity they wanted to do, hence so many different sheets. I colour coded these to help pupils make choice. Any comments suggestions appreciated !

Was it the Suffragettes or WW1 that gained women the vote?Quick View

Was it the Suffragettes or WW1 that gained women the vote?

Requires students to consider which factor was most important in women gaining the vote, the Suffragettes or WW1. Following a recap starter where students need to bullet point information they have gained previously on the Suffragettes [this can also be completed while watching the documentary 'Suffragette City' that is hyperlinked to the title, a fantastic documentary on the subject], they are presented with a number of different contemporary and secondary sources, which which they need to complete the source grid. The sources are differentiated by amount of text and also 'chilies' to show how difficult each one is, allowing self-differentiation. Students then need to highlight a model answer using the success criteria, before attempting their own answer on whether WW1 or the Suffragettes was more significant in women gaining the vote in 1918. This is suitable for both KS3 and also KS4.

The Suffragettes

NEW KS3 History curriculum on British Reforms following the NEW 1-9 grading criteria. This lesson focuses on the work of the Suffragettes (WSPU) and the tactics they employed to gain equal rights for women including getting the vote. Students get to practice the skill of chronology in assembling Suffragette tactics. Students then have the opportunity to write a piece of creative writing in the form of a speech from the point of view of a Suffragette. The teacher can choose students to sit in a 'hot seat' at the front of the class to read out their work (alternatively, this task can be carried over into a second lesson to give every student the chance to read out, or perform their speech). In the plenary, students vote in a secret ballot to decide if violent action helped women to get the vote. All tasks are clearly differentiated and this lesson is suitable for all abilities.
