What made 9/11 so shocking?

What made 9/11 so shocking?

There aren't many September 11th lessons out there so here's one! The main objective is for students to gauge how 'complete' a BBC news clip is. The PowerPoint includes task descriptions but please ask if you can't follow the lesson. The bottom of the posters should be folded up so that you can reveal the answers! You choose the plenary. If you know of a short clip which was produced a little after the event that would be useful. Any comments are appreciated! :-) Images acquired through a search engine filtered to "labelled for reuse" BBC own the copyright to the clip in the link. I've been observed in this lesson and graded as outstanding so hopefully this works for you too.(911, 9-11)

UK General Election Presentation / Lesson

UK General Election Presentation / Lesson

This resource can form a lesson, informing children about the importance of General Elections (like 2017) and why we have them.This Powerpoint presentation allows children to learn about what 'government' is, how it is structured, what different major parties form our current government and what their current policies are (which I have sourced as independently as possible using various news outlets and party pages, barring any U-turns!) This then goes on to allow children to discuss the policies presented to them and to think about what matters / appeals to them the most, with the aim of encouraging freedom of independent thought and debate. Due to the complex wording of some policies, this resource would be most appropriate for UKS2 and KS3, and possibly LKS2 with detailed supporting verbal explanation of key issues provided by teaching staff, such as Brexit.The class can then go on to hold a Polling Station to vote, with polling cards included in the resource pack, before votes being counted and the results being displayed on the slide in both percentage and pie chart form.
