The lesson was aimed at a lower ability group, but could easily be adapted for a higher ability or mixed ability group. The lesson centred around Independent Learning. As my independent learning activities had been successful with higher ability groups, I wanted to see if they could be used with lower ability groups too.
The aim was for students to be grouped in mixed ability groupings and for each group to be given a particular character and investigate what their life may have been like in the 19th Century. The groups would then feedback to the group with what they had found.
During the research time, groups would be given newsflashes, to assess learning and progress. I gave students specific pieces of information - attached, but also let them have access to the internet and textbooks.
The plenary was a hot seat activity where students' could ask questions about the lives of each character.
The lesson was graded good.
It's good to leave some feedback.
