AQA GCSE 9-1 History Elizabethan England 1568-1603: Revision Flashcards

AQA GCSE 9-1 History Elizabethan England 1568-1603: Revision Flashcards

I have produced these flashcards in another and lasting bid to get my Year 11’s revising and focusing on the forthcoming Mocks and GCSE exam. I use these 60 flashcards in revision sessions and intervention after school. They have proved a great success and it also gives the students something to take home and revise. I also email them to parents so they can keep track on heir child’s homework and revision. They need cutting down the middle and folding; the students then test themselves and each other, removing the ones they recognise and retaining those they don’t. The flashcards contain the main events, people and key words needed for the exam and cover the period 1558-1603. I have included a PDF file and a Powerpoint version if there is a wish to adapt and change.

Slave resistance - 16 page lesson pack

Slave resistance - 16 page lesson pack

In this lesson students begin with a what-would-you-do style starter activity in which they scores points according to their reactions to losing their freedoms. This stimulates discussion over how enslaved people might react and leads into the main activity which is a card sort. Students divide up the very precise 13 cards into examples of passive and active resistance and try to explain how they prioritised them. So for example was Nat Turner’s revolt much more high risk than say kicking a cow? Students then go on to use this card sort as an effective scaffold for a piece of extended written work before finishing the lesson off with a plenary about cultural appropriation (in particular whether it is right for a slave-trading nation like Britain to use a slave spiritual ‘Amazing Grace’ in its sporting fixtures). My students always find this a really powerful life lesson and one which hones their historical skills fantastically well. I hope you find it useful with your students too.

Causes of slavery - 7 page lesson pack

Causes of slavery - 7 page lesson pack

This is one of my most popular lesson activities. Students read detailed background knowledge before completing a hexagonal card sort to divide reasons up into belief systems, technology, geography and economics. Here students will make links between their factors to create a visual map which they can use for an extended piece of written analysis. I am especially proud of the level of precision and detail in the historical content here. The eighteen cards are broken down and color coordinated for differentiation purposes. I really hope you enjoy this activity and that your students get as much from it as mine do. Please watch the video for a quick feel of how this task works.
