Causes of Crime 1530-present day GCSE WJEC

Causes of Crime 1530-present day GCSE WJEC

Everything you need to teach this unit is here. The PowerPoint presentation covers the entire unit with class based activities built in. Pupils can take home the information booklet and use it for their revision (and if they miss lessons they can always use it to catch up). There is a test for them to complete which is based on knowledge and understanding only. This test also contains all the answers if they want to learn these off by heart. I also have an exemplar answer of the extended question in the WJEC papers which they can learn. I've also thrown in a group work card sorting exercise for pupils to compete if time allows -this can also be used in Year 8 when teaching poverty and vagrancy, and at A level.

Edexcel Superpower Relations & Cold War L15 Why did Cuba become a problem for the USA?

Edexcel Superpower Relations & Cold War L15 Why did Cuba become a problem for the USA?

Students begin by creating a caption for a cartoon of JFK. They then categorise knowledge cards before producing a SWOT analysis of Cuba for Castro in 1959 before he launches his revolution. They use their knowledge of Cuba and fresh evidence cards of the main incidents following the revolution to create a heart beat graph for President Kennedy. This is then used to respond to a series of questions. There is a homework activity on the causes of effects on the Bay of Pigs incident. The lesson concludes with students refining their cartoon captions.
