GCSE HISTORY Edexcel (1-9) How to answer all types of exam question (Papers 1-3).

After 2 years teaching the new specification, I have developed these student friendly posters/mats/handouts which will allow students to structure and understand the demands of each type of question for each of the 3 exam papers.

—Each contains example sentence starters using the P.E.E.L appraoch.
—Source based questions for Paper 1 and 3 also have an additional poster.
—Also includes a GCSE literacy sheet with sentence starters and general rules - I have successfully used this with KS3 students.
—I personally teach Elizabeth, AW, C&P and Germany and these have been illustrated with example questions. However, I have another ‘blank’ set which you can add to with your own unit title.

—On the last slide, I have included 4 sheets which can then be copied onto A3 and laminated for the students if needed.

Hopefully these will save people a lot of time and most of all be useful for your students.
