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.

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.

The Strange Case of Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde SOW (Low Ability and GCSE Friendly)

The Strange Case of Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde SOW (Low Ability and GCSE Friendly)

The premise of this SOW is to have frequent quizzes and comprehension questions to check understanding. Every lesson has a plenary quiz at the end to check comprehension and knowledge of the characters and the storyline. There are also recaps of particular terms like pathetic fallacy, narrative, gothic and narrator. The first two weeks are dedicated to a simplified version of contextual knowledge. I chose to omit Freud and the Id, Superego and Ego because it is designed for low ability. But you can add and alter the SOW and alter the fortnightly quizzes to add questions and reteach sheets on this if you wish. The activities are designed to be for low ability in the sense that they are given sentence starters whenever they do discussion pair work and they also do bingo cards for chapter reading. Audiobooks are attached to the reading parts. There is an assessment right at the end of the unit on whether or not Mr Hyde is a frightening character. Bonus: there are fortnightly quizzes with answers and reteach sheets, with time allocated in the SOW to have reflection and review of learning time.

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: Historical Context - through timelines, picture prompts and key words 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. Better Literacy – through selected ‘language for learning’ vocab box. Memory prompts to support revision – through the use of carefully selected images. 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. The reverse side contains guidance on EXAM TECHNIQUE through: Identifying the nature of the question styles for each GCSE Unit and the allocated marks available Examiners levelled mark schemes Support writing frames with generic sentence starters
