Lesson 18 GCSE History Edexcel 1-9 Crime and Punishment: The Tolpuddle Martyrs

I have designed this lesson to be either used as a whole lesson, or towards the end of the lesson you will find a fact sheet and question sheet which can be copied back to back as a stand alone h/w task if time is an issue when teaching this unit. The lesson itself includes: Starter: What is a trade union? Why might someone join a trade union? Why might governments dislike trade unions? Discussion based. Task: Students can watch a 6 min, class clip about the events before putting the main events in chronological order. This can also be done with the help of the face sheet (see image) or class book. Both Hodder and Pearson have good sections on this topic. Extension: Students can use the h/w sheet as an extension OR another slide asks the students to sort 10 key events into causes or consequences. Exam Focus - students use their knowledge of this topic to create their own 12 and 16 mark questions. Examples are given.
