GCSE Edexcel The American West: L5: How did US government policy towards the Indians develop 1830-51

This lesson focuses on the US government’s policy towards the Plains Indians in the period 1830-51 and how/ why it changed during this period. Students analyse four key events/ policy changes through decision-making and discussion based tasks. Using their knowledge on each policy they complete a radar graph activity which leads into follow-up tasks such as a quick fire quiz and an annotated time line. These activities set the students up for an examination (narrative style) question. These are structure strips, tips and a mark scheme included. The PowerPoint includes a step by step guide with a examples and a range of differentiated and extension tasks. This lesson will ideally be taught across two one hour lessons. These resources and lessons take many hours to plan and create, so any feedback is greatly appreciated. I hope that you and your students find them helpful.

GCSE Edexcel The American West: Lesson 4: How did the Plains Indians survive on the Great Plains?

GCSE Edexcel The American West: Lesson 4: How did the Plains Indians survive on the Great Plains?

This lesson requires students to assess the key factors that enabled the Plains Indians to survive in the Great Plains. The lessons begins with a quick intro to the harsh environment that exists on the Plains with a student-led task. The main activity is a group task (can be completed individually but I prefer group discussions and questioning). A warrior brotherhood needs to teach young recruits about survival on the Plains. They only have one hour to convey the key knowledge. Students assess four key factors, weigh up the importance of each by completing decision-making tasks & explaining their decisions before outlining how they would divide the 60 minute lesson. This lesson has plenty of scope for teacher questioning and critical thinking tasks. The lesson concludes with an exam style question (structure strips/ tips included). These lessons take many hours to plan and create, so reviews are greatly appreciated.

WHY DIDN'T BURKE AND WILLS REACH THE GULF OF CARPENTARIA?

WHY DIDN'T BURKE AND WILLS REACH THE GULF OF CARPENTARIA?

In the early 1860’s the colonies of Victoria and South Australia were involved in a race to see which one would become the first to finance an exploration team to cross the continent from the southern ocean to the northern shores. Such expeditions would take explorers through the unknown arid interior and on to the savanna lands of the tropics. The Victorian expedition, led by Burke and Wills, was lavishly funded and well resources. It left months earlier than the South Australian expedition team led by Stuart. Residents in each of the colonial capitals waited for news of progress and hopefully achievement. Both expeditions faced considerable hardship. The Burke and Wills expedition gained more interest, probably due to the disasters encountered on the return journey south; the events of the dig tree and the death of Burke and Wills. Stuart, although badly affected by the journey returned to Adelaide without losing any of his party of seven. In terms of dates the Burke and Wills group reached the northern areas before Stuart but the debate developed about the technical issue of actually standing on the northern beaches. Stuart managed this but Burke and Wills, for various reasons, did not. This is a piece of Australian colonial history which answers the question. The debate about who can claim the “first crossing” continues. Take your students to camp 119, Burke and Wills most northerly camp where they will find some answers. A question and research page is provided as an attachment. Reference to the unit on Stuart is provided if you wish to delve further into Australian colonial history.

NINE-USA CITIES

NINE-USA CITIES

This presentation can be used for children between the ages of 9 and sixteen. There are fifty five slides and thirty nine pages of additional resource materials. I have selected the following cities because of their contrasting site, situation and geographical locations. They are: Boston, New York, Washington DC, Chicago, Detroit, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco and New Orleans. This selection of cities offers extended studies in both Physical and Human Geography. Included in the slide notes and the resource file are suggested work challenges involving on line work, historical links, geographical writing skills, discussions and other map drawing exercises. The presentation can be targeted at nine and ten year old students but it will be necessary to use the shortened version of the script. Children between the age of eleven and fourteen should be able to cope well with most of the challenges. Key Stage 4 (fourteen to sixteen years) students involved in examinations will be able to link this resource with a large range of the exam topics. Some examples include: Boston and New York - Settlements, site, situation and geographical location. New Orleans - Flooding, Mississippi Drainage Basin, River features including deltas. Detroit - Industrial and population change. Chicago and Detroit - Location, Waterways and Trade, Glaciation and the Great Lakes. Los Angeles and San Francisco - Environmental Hazards and Tourism. Las Vegas - Desert environment, Water resources and the Entertainment Industry. Washington DC - Capital City, history, location, population, government and tourism. There are several IT challenges on offer that involve constructing a quiz word grid, following the course of the River Colorado by using on line maps, developing knowledge of site, situation and geographical location with a starting point in Downtown Chicago. The whole project is aimed at developing a wide range of geographical knowledge along with IT skills and the opportunity to improve writing techniques in preparation for higher level studies. I personally would use this resource for Year 9 groups in preparation for Key Stage 4 Geography. The History content makes it just that little bit more interesting.
