China: Conflict, Crisis and Change 1900 – 1989. Designed for the Edexcel IGCSE Breadth Study but features a wide range of activities and approaches, and is in depth enough, that makes it excellent for all China history courses.
It is a standalone SOW (e.g. you don’t need to refer to a text book) and each lesson is self-contained, with all the information and resources required to deliver at least a Good rated lesson if not an Outstanding one.
Assessment & activity types are introduced and revisited based on a retrieval grid to ensure maximum learning and imbedding of skills and knowledge. Each lesson is estimated to take 45-60 minutes to complete but in my experience many can stretch over 2 or even 3 lessons depending on teacher judgement.
Each lesson features as a minimum:
Numeracy & Literacy challenges.
Keywords (to add to a student glossary).
EAL support sheets.
Stretch and challenge activities.
Teacher Quick Start Guide.
Literacy support mats.
Homework extension task mats.
Context slide for the lesson.

Poor resource. There is very little actual content delivery, just plenaries and gimmicks for student performance activities. The included worksheets are good but would be better if there was more actual subject content in the slides for the students to build on. Additionally, there are many misspellings. These are also very short, and do not last a full lesson.
Hi. Sorry you feel this way. The misspellings are included in intentional activities at the beginning of the slides. This has been an issue raised before and I've tried to highlight this by signposting the activities more clearly (this is not say there might not be the odd typo elsewhere but I have thoroughly checked them all following another reviewer who was a bit confused by the literacy activities). I created them using several text books for a school without a budget for textbooks so I believed I had included all the content required in each PowerPoint. Indeed my students used this as their primary resource while revising during lockdown and all met their targets. The 'gimmicks' are activities that use dual coding and retrieval techniques to aid retention and learning in the classroom. Personally I find each lesson stretches over several lessons (55 min lessons). I have received dozens of emails over the years from teachers claiming these are wonderful resources that have saved them hours and hours of preparation. So I'm very sorry to hear of your review. If you'd like a full refund please contact me via the website. All the best.
Amazing resource: I especially love that there is is focus on EAL as all my students are non-native English speakers with varying levels of English. My HoD is desperate for part 2 - when is it due to come out?
Erm, part 2... when I get a spare moment! Haha. Hopefully this academic year but couldn't tell you when! I made a revision guide as a quick fix to the remainder of the course. This is what I rely on at the moment until I get round to making the second half proper 🙂👍
Some examples of misspelled words from 3 of the PowerPoints: Chineese, thusand years, demended, chinna, refussed, mak, ment, greator, oficials
Ok, so these are across the first three? Thank you. I'll review the first three, and again, please accept my apologies. If you can stomach the thought of potentiality more dodgy spelling please get in touch via the website and I will send some more resources your way as way of an apology.
Oh sorry, this is a review of the 12? Ok, I will go through them all. Again, my apologies and the offer still stands.
Hi. Sorry again, I've just noticed that three of the spellings you have identified feature in the "find the wrong spelling" activity on the first slide. "Ment", "greator" and "oficials" all appear in the 1911 Revolution lesson on slide 4 (the first slide of the lesson) as part of the literacy activity which is why it says "correct" next to it with an image of a pencil.<br /> <br /> I am a terrible speller, but in defence of the slides, the ones you mention are deliberate.<br /> <br /> It pains me to ask, but if that is the case, would you mind recording your two star rating? I'm rather proud of the effort that went into this series of lessons and if the rating is based on a misunderstanding this would be a huge shame.<br /> <br /> Again, please, I am very happy to discuss this via the website.<br /> <br /> And if I am wrong I am desperately keen to make the corrections.<br /> <br /> Thank you.
Phew! Happy that was the case :)
