A series of 3 lessons looking at arguments for and against women getting the vote, tactics used by the women and why women won the vote. Attached is also an assessment that can be used at the end of the 3 lessons which follows the new GCSE style of questions. Ideal for KS3.
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 !
Worksheets for students to complete while watching the film “Suffragette”. There is a mid-point essay style question for assessment or possible debate/discussion activity. Each set of questions relate to every 10-20 min of the film and this is clearly marked on the sheet so teacher can stop the film at appropriate point to discuss.
There are 8 sets of questions, with discussion this could be 4-5 lessons work if you are looking to set cover without much teacher input then can be completed in 3.
Perfect resource to avoid just passive watching of the film, I have designed the questions to draw out the human rights issues and historical context.

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.
This key word literacy display has been designed to be used on classroom walls (or on display boards outside) when introducing a new History topic to the students. The slides cover the following words and their definitions:
Cat and Mouse Act, conciliation, constitution, discrimination, Emmiline Pankhurst, Emily Davison, enfranchise, Epsom Derby, franchise, force feeding, hunger strikes, Married Women’s Property Act, Matrimonial Causes Act, legislation, militant, Nancy Astor, patriarchal society, petition, propaganda, subordinate, suffrage, suffragette, suffragist, WSPU, WWI.
It is an easy resource to print and will hopefully save an incredible amount of time and effort when incorporating literacy into a new or existing scheme of work. The slides can also be laminated and used as mobiles hanging from the ceiling or used as part of an informative display.
