Jack the Ripper SoW: Lesson 3 - Eyewitnesses

Updated to include Powerpoint and Flipchart Versions

The third lesson in a scheme of 9. Students are shown eyewitness accounts to work out a potential profile for the killer and the reasons they may be unreliable.

Fully resourced introduction to Jack the Ripper and a wider study into Whitechapel. The scheme has been planned with differentiated questions on the flipchart denoted by colours:

  • Blue for lower ability
  • Green for middle ability
  • Purple for higher ability

The way I use these is to challenge students to work as high up the scale as they find they are capable.

Students are to learn about different types of sources which have different uses to historians and their limitations as well. This scheme could be used for the KS4 Crime and Punishment Section A but would need some supplementing with further detail on Policing, Society, Robert Peel etc.
