Worked well for us. It's a real pleasure to be a part of the community of this wonderful site. I truly recommend other teachers to use it. It includes so much information that I was almost blown away with it, which is quite something if you know me as the teacher I am. Thanks so much to the absolutely spiffing creator of this super site.
I truly hope that there will be more to come of this brilliant knowledge. Thanks again! tata

From psychopaths to homeopaths, from bodysnatchers to Bohemians, 'Medical London' comprises a book of essays, a set of maps for self guided walks and a gazetteer and covers the roles played by diseases, treatments and cures in London&'s sprawling history.
This video features a point of interest on walk five from the book, &';Politics, Poverty, Pox and Pleasure: Soho by night'.
An information leaflet [in the form of a letter] detailing Dr Snow's evidence for the transmission of cholera being through infected water. Includes a missing summary sentence for pupils to demonstrate their understanding and summarise the transmission method.
This is for a 100 minute lesson, but there are two tasks which could be split over two 50 min lessons.
The Timeline Poster is one activity and the Darwin text based activity is the second activity.
The text may be too textual for low ability or low reading age students, my low reading age group had an LSA and they were ACE!
