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.

KS3 History Scheme of Work: Why is it important to remember the Holocaust.

A great time saver for teachers delivering KS3 History. This is a Scheme of Work on Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. It gets students to assess reasons why Hitler got into power, to the Holocaust and how it should be remembered. This SOW includes key questions and lesson enquiries as well as possible teaching and learning activities and links to 'Personal Learning Thinking Skills.' It also suggests assessment strategies and differentiation opportunities.
