Mental Health History Timetable

(1)
Adapted from the resource at http://www.studymore.org.uk/mhhtim.htm, this timeline details the history of mental health from ancient times through to the present day, showing the dates of significant moments such as groundbreaking campaigns, the opening of key mental health units and charities, and the passing of important mental health acts. Can be used as a source of good succinct background information for a project in history, social studies, PSHE/citizenship, science or literature.
Fact sheet: Machiavelli

Fact sheet: Machiavelli

(0)
This resource was designed for students studying Christopher Marlowe’s play The Jew of Malta, but it could equally be of use to teachers and students of History or Politics, as well as English and Drama. It consists of a brief overview of Machiavelli’s life and work, with 3 copies per page to ease printing, photocopying and distribution.
WW1 letters comprehension/analysis activities

WW1 letters comprehension/analysis activities

(0)
This resource collates multiple WW1 letters from an American soldier, deployed in France, to his father back home in the US. The ensuing activities check on students’ comprehension of vocabulary and ask them to analyse the context, audience, purpose, and stylistic elements of the text. Best for students with some confidence at doing this already but could be adapted for weaker students or students who are only just starting to develop these skills. If using the final analysis-writing activity this could easily stretch to 2-3 lessons depending on the amount of groundwork you need to lay with your students beforehand. An alternative approach could be, for instance, to carousel the reading and analysis of letters so that e.g. a small group just works with one letter.
Fact sheet: IRA (Irish Republican Army)

Fact sheet: IRA (Irish Republican Army)

(0)
This is a fact sheet about the IRA designed to be distributed to students, or for teachers to use to give them some background knowledge. It has been adapted/created based on Wikipedia so naturally is basic/has limitations, but is suitable for student use and for teachers who are not history specialists. It can be useful for English teachers who are teaching plays or novels where this history is relevant, such as Brian Friel’s “Translations” or Joan Lingard’s “Across The Barricades”.
Republic of Ireland context/history quiz

Republic of Ireland context/history quiz

(0)
This quiz was designed to be used in an English lesson to reinforce student knowledge of Irish history in relation to Brian Friel’s play “Translations”. However, it could of course also be used by history teachers! The quiz could be done traditionally, whereby students revise in advance and then sit the quiz on their own. However, I used it as a team game, whereby at around Easter time, the slips were cut up and hidden around the classroom treasure hunt-style. Students had to work in teams to find the slips and fill in the answers where they thought they went on the answer sheet. The first team to get a full sheet of correct answers - or the highest number of correct answers - by the end of the given time - won an Easter egg (I appreciate that edible prizes and/or the religious aspect won’t work in all schools so obviously feel free to substitute this with a reward of your choosing if needed). Ground rules worth setting include: no hoarding of slips in your team (they should be put back where you have found them so other teams can also find them…) and no using chairs/tables etc as weaponry to guard the slips you have found (yes, really!!).
