NEW KS3 History curriculum on British Reforms following the NEW 1-9 grading criteria. The lesson starts with an outline of the plight of living conditions for working class people, explored through a source and video clip from the BBC. Students then analyse a selection of sources in more depth to explain why Reforms were necessary. Students then go on a carousel task around the room to investigate six core factors that drove the Liberal Reforms; industrial decline, De Boer war, social reformers, key people, political rivalry and a new philosophy. Finally, students rank the factors in order of importance and link to government Reforms. All tasks are clearly differentiated and this lesson is suitable for all abilities.
