Diamond 9: Why was it difficult to maintain law and order in the American West?

Diamond 9: Why was it difficult to maintain law and order in the American West?

This outstanding resource has been designed to provide stretch and challenge for students analysing the key reasons why it was difficult to maintain law and order in the American West. . It can be used as a starter, plenary, revision or assessment activity. If you are looking for something more suitable for lower and middle ability then please check out my card sort matching exercise on this topic, which can be downloaded from my TES shop. This resource will easily work alongside any main steam textbook or resource on the American West. The resource includes nine diamond shaped cards which include a range of factors which explain it was difficult to maintain law and order in the American West. The document is provided in Microsoft Word so you can edit the resource if you wish to customise it further by changing any of the key factors that I have included. Once students have cut out the cards out they are set three tasks including: 1. Remove any reasons that you don’t think are important. Record and explain why you have removed them. 2. Arrange the remaining diamonds to show any links that you can find between the different reasons. Record and explain your reasons. 3. Make a smaller diamond shape using the four most important reasons to explain why it was difficult to maintain law and order in the American West. Record and explain the reasons for your choices. At each stage students should be feeding back to their group or the class and explaining their choices. The discussion and explanation around the choices that they have made are critical in helping them develop their understanding of the topic. The aims and objectives for this lesson are: Theme: The American West Know: What were the key reasons why maintaining law & order was difficult? Understand: What roles did social, economic, geographical factors as well as the values and attitudes play of the people at the time, play in making law enforcement difficult? Evaluate: Which was the most important factor? WILF - What Am I Looking For? Identify and describe: what were the main reasons why maintaining law and order was difficult? Explain: What roles did social, economic, geographical, factors as well as the values and attitudes of people at the time, play in making law enforcement difficult? Analyse: Which was the most important factor? Kind Regards Roy

The final result should make an excellent plan for writing an extended answer on this topic. The first resource entitled 'Card Sort - Why was law and order a problem in the West?', includes five headings under which the students can sort the rest of the cards. These are political, social, economic, geographical, values and attitudes. The rest of the resource then includes 11 cards which can be matched to the headings. I've also included a hard copy of both card sorts in the form of a Microsoft Office Word document as a courtesy, just in case you do not have enough iPads on the day.
