Edexcel CRIME and ANGLO SAXON 1-9 Walk and Talk Mocks with Therapy.

Edexcel CRIME and ANGLO SAXON 1-9 Walk and Talk Mocks with Therapy.

I made this resource for my GCSE Groups and used it alongside the PiXL Smith Pro-Forma generator. If you dont have access to PiXL this still worked really well. Stage 1: Set the Exam. Students sit the examination as a formal mock exam. Stage 2: Mark the exams but not in detail. Use the included marking spreadsheet (which can be used to upload to PiXL if you have access) to RAG each question for each student. You then issue them with the therapy that matches there need. Stage 3: Issue and complete the therapy documents. Stage 4: Re-Sit the exam question which they have completed the therapy for. Stage 5: Revel in the improved outcome of your learners.

Card Sort Source Analysis - Was Robespierre a hero or villain?

Card Sort Source Analysis - Was Robespierre a hero or villain?

This innovative and creative activity has been carefully designed to help students assess the role played by the revolutionary leader Robespierre during the period known as the Reign of Terror in the French Revolution. This activity involves giving students ten primary sources and four secondary sources written by historians and sorting them under the headings of hero or villain. Once this has been complete, students can then have a go at answering the question: How far was Robespierre a hero who saved the revolution or a villain who betrayed his own values to take control of France?’ I would recommend that this resource should be used with either a core or advanced group as there is a lot of reading, which would be too much for a foundation group with low literacy skills. If you are looking for something a little easier, I have made a another simpler card sort which just looks at the facts. This can be bought separately. This resource makes a great starter or plenary to completed in pairs or groups. It can be cut up the students or placed into envelopes for use with several classes or even set as a piece of homework. Alternatively, your students could draw a table with the two headings ‘hero’ or ‘villain’ and list the sources under them. The aims and objectives are: Theme: The reign of Terror Know: What sort of man was Robespierre? Understand: Why are historical events interpreted in different ways? Evaluate: Was Robespierre a hero who saved the revolution or a villain who betrayed his own values to take control of France? WILF - What Am I Looking For? Identify and describe: Which sources support / disagree with Robespierre being a ‘hero’ or ‘villian’? Explain: Why were Robespierre’s actions controversial? Analyse: Was Robespierre a hero who saved the revolution or a villain who betrayed his own values to take control of France?
