The American West: Cowboys, Ranching and Homesteaders. (Edexcel GCSE 1/9)

his lesson has been designed for the GCSE Edexcel American West module. All outcomes are linked with Paper Two's Assessment Objectives 1 & 2. The focus of this lesson is to build pupils knowledge regarding the life of a Cowboy and the problems they faced. Pupils will also learn about the rivalry between Ranchers and Homesteaders. the lesson begins with a re-cap of the reasons cattle ranching spread to the Great Plains before conducting an inquiry into the life of a Cowboy. I have included two possible tasks here to appeal to various learning styles. 1. Pupils can listen to a song about the life of a Cowboy identifying the problems they faced. OR 2. Pupils watch a short video clip explaining the life of a Cowboy on a Ranch. Pupils can then use this knowledge to complete a consolidation task linked to the different roles of Cowboys on the Long Drives / in Ranches. Pupils are then introduced to the problems encountered by Ranchers and Homesteaders (Video embedded here to introduce the problem of Barbed Wire). Pupils will then compete in groups in a relay style task to identify the other main rivalries between Ranchers and Homesteaders. OR If you have computer access I have also suggested an alternative cartoon strip style task. (Link Provided) this may work better for less able pupils. Videos links are provided and further advice can be found within the description of the presentation regarding the various forms tasks could take to suit your class. You will need the Pearson Edexcel American West Textbook for one of the activities.
