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)

How should we remember war?

How should we remember war?

This group discussion lesson works well stretched out as an hour long lesson analysing how we should remember war. Looking at the brutality of war and the controversial debates around wearing a poppy, the lesson looks at examples from Northern Ireland and Iraq about why some people take issue with remembering the war dead. This lesson worked brilliantly with my Y9 History class at the end of covering ww1.

The Munich Putsch

The Munich Putsch

LESSON OUTLINE• Students will start be playing Pictionary. There will be a pack of keywords for the lesson, or from recent topics, and they need to draw these for their partners. See how many can be guessed in the one minute timer.• Define one of these words (Putsch) and then get students to complete a worksheet about what happened in the Munich Putsch. Four members of the class have information to tell the story, they will stand up, and read their part of the story. The other students will need to fill out the relevant part of their sheet.• Students will now look at the events that happened in more detail. They need to consider whether the Putsch was ultimately a success or a failure. To do this they have an information sheet full of ideas and must make notes in a table in their exercise books.• Ask students to write on a post-it note whether they think the Putsch was more of a failure or a success. • Students will now pair up with somebody that thinks differently to them and have a discussion to verbally strengthen their views.DIFFERENTIATION• Three versions of the information sheets for the success/failure activity. More information for the high ability students, less information for the lower ability students and with key information highlighted. Normal sheet for middle attainers.AFL• Go through the correct order of the events of the Munich Putsch after the first activity to ensure that students have written them in the correct place.• Students will pair up and discuss at the end of the lesson.This will show you have strong their ideas are, and acts as a good prelude to a potential writing task.

Introduction lesson on the Northern Ireland Troubles.

Introduction lesson on the Northern Ireland Troubles.

This is the first lesson in an expanding series on the Northern Ireland troubles, it is suited to 15-16 year old class.I am an IB teacher and therefore tailor these lessons for an MYP audience, I teach the Northern Ireland conflict as a model for conflict resolution in other civil conflicts. However some of the series may well be useful for GCSE students.This introduction lesson is tailored for students who are not from Northern Ireland and therefore in this lesson, symbols, language and flags used to identify the two communities are taught in this lesson.Students will research numerous symbols used in Northern Ireland, as well as the key words used in the Northern Ireland conflict. The students will also research the complex issue of flags and must identify the communities that identify with the flags in Northern Ireland.The Plenary of the lesson is a short 5 minute video that explores Belfast murals.

Reading comprehension booklet - Parvana aka The Breadwinner

Reading comprehension booklet - Parvana aka The Breadwinner

This booklet has been designed as part of a year 8 English unit of work on Parvana (a novel set in Afghanistan during the reign of the Taliban). It includes activities about characters, the setting and language features which students are to complete as they read the novel. There are also questions about the events/themes/character's perspectives et cetera for each chapter. This is all in preparation for a creative writing assessment where students take what they have learned to create a written literary transformation (a short story from a marginalised character's perspective). Their short story has to focus on a moral issue within the novel.I have referenced the other study guides I drew on when creating this resource.
