9-1 Edexcel History Learning / Topic Placemat - The British sector of the Western Front, 1914–18

9-1 Edexcel History Learning/Topic Placemats for the Medicine Through Time course - Topic 4 - Twentieth Century to present day These interactive learning placemats were designed to meet the challenges of the new 9-1 GCSE. They build upon the successful Medicine Through Time Placemats that I previously designed (and which received 5* reviews by all who have purchased them up to the time of launching these new materials – see: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/9-1-edexcel-gcse-history-of-medicine-place-mat-question-structure-11627611 ). The new placemats have been identified as best practice during a ‘Challenge Partners’ review as well as being identified as best practice by other History teachers on the Olevi ‘Outstanding Teacher Programme’. The new design learning placemats support both teachers and students in addressing the: a) dramatic increase in the curriculum content needed for the different units b) support the need for increased literacy demands c) help students become familiar and more confident in recognising the correct response needed for the unprecedented number of different question styles The placemats are designed to be double sided. One side focuses on the CONTENT: providing an overview of key knowledge and understanding needed (this will change for each topic area within this GCSE unit). Every placemat across the GCSE range is designed to encourage greater understanding of: 1. Historical Context - through timelines, picture prompts and key words 2. Awareness of the ‘big picture’ so students can see how individual lessons fit into the unit and make clearer links between prior and future learning – through ‘Big Picture’ questions. 3. Better Literacy – through selected ‘language for learning’ vocab box. 4. Memory prompts to support revision – through the use of carefully selected images. 5. Increased awareness of metacognition – through PME (Progress, Monitor and Evaluation Time) questions to encourage students to deconstruct their learning and identify key factors (eg. Social, economic, political) or key individuals and make links between features. A pictorial metacognition man with 5 question prompts will support student reflection. 6. A confidence thermometer is also included as a prompt to identify student confidence in the topic. The reverse side contains guidance on EXAM TECHNIQUE through: 1. Identifying the nature of the question styles for each GCSE Unit and the allocated marks available 2. Examiners levelled mark schemes 3. Support writing frames with generic sentence starters

Wars and Welfare: Social Issues, Class and Poverty

Wars and Welfare: Social Issues, Class and Poverty

This is a lesson I have made for the new AQA 2M option 'Wars and Welfare: Britain in Transition 1906-1957'. I teach this unit using the Oxford AQA History book by Thomas and Willis so there are a couple of references to this book in one or two of the activities. There are a range of audio, kinaesthetic and visual activities here - catered towards AS Y12 students. There are some discussion topics too - a good intro to the issues of poverty in Britain at the time and why the Liberals wanted welfare reforms. A presentation is included here as well as a fair few resources I have made.
