AQA GCSE 2019 Paper Two Exam Coaching/Revision Powerpoint - Medicine and Normans

(0)
Coaching powerpoint I used last year and have adapted to suit this year’s (2019) upcoming exam. Takes the pupils through the paper with visual examples and looks at each type of question on the exam in a simple fashion with some hints and tips for answering each question. I used a similar powerpoint for Paper One on Monday and the students found it very helpful and informative without being overwhelming so close to their exam.

AQA GCSE History: Normans - Lesson 22&23:Problems with the Church and Lanfranc's Reforms

(0)
Created for the new AQA GCSE. Lesson begins by looking at the key points about the Domesday Book (lesson 21) and then a summary of William’s attempts to keep power. This then leads into looking at the problems with the church at the time of the Norman Conquest and the issue of Archbishop Stigand. Class examine the 4 major problems in more detail, developing an understanding of why the Normans wanted to reform the church. Lesson 2 introduces the key character of Lanfranc and focusses on the key reforms to the church made by the Normans with focus on a ‘explain what was important’ exam question. After building understanding of the key changes, the class will be in a position to answer the question. Lesson is presented in an easy-to-use style and Powerpoint is self-explanatory. Lesson uses textbook: Hodder: Norman England 1066-c.1100 by Helena Clarke

AQA GCSE History: Germany 1890-45 Revision Lessons

(0)
Set of Seven revision lessons I used last year for my Year 11s, focussing on the Germany 1890-45 topic Lessons cover: Creation of Germany - end of the Kaiser End of WW1 - Failure of the Munich Putsch Weimar Germany 1924-29 Nazis in 1929 - Night of Long Knives Hitler’s Germany : Propaganda; Terror; Youth; Women; Church; Economy (we didn’t have time to focus on Germany during the War and had already done a seperate focus on the Holocaust in revision) Assessment Lesson. Lessons are presented as information slides. There are some tasks involved but my class preferred lecture-style lessons so much of these PPTs are presented in this way. Lessons are printable - I would do this and give to the students beforehand to make notes - and easily editable.
GCSE History AQA: Germany 1890-1945 - Reichstag Fire and Enabling Act
BigfozBigfoz

GCSE History AQA: Germany 1890-1945 - Reichstag Fire and Enabling Act

(0)
Lessons cover Hitler and the Nazis’ consolidation of power after Hitler was made chancellor. First lesson begins with a recap of the sequence of event which led to Hitler being made Chancellor before outlining his problem - he needs to win the upcoming election. Video clip from the Rise of Evil (hyperlink in PPT) is then supported by textbook work looking at the events and motives behind the fire. Pupils then learn how this enabled the Nazis to crush the communists with Emergency Powers before moving on to the results of the March 33 election. Second lesson picks up on the election, starting with source analysis before explaining why the Nazis still don’t have things as they would like. Information and video clip then cover the Enabling Act before pupils then have to complete a written consolidation task. This could be changed into a GCSE style ‘write an account question’. I tend to print out the following slide which shows how the Nazis quickly addressed threats as it is an easy-to-read flow chart. This then introduces Hitler’s next problem - the SA Lesson is presented in an easy-to-use style and Powerpoint is self-explanatory. Referred to Enabling Act sheet can be printed from end of powerpoint. Lesson uses the the old AQA GCSE History B Twentieth Century Depth Studies (Aqa Gcse History B Unit 2) but this can be adapted if book not accessible.
The Peasants' Revolt

The Peasants' Revolt

(0)
2-3 lessons looking at the Peasants’ Revolt. Lesson begins by introducing the causes for the Revolt, looking at why the peasants were angry. Pupils then watch a video - (link in PPT) to tell the story of the revolt. This recaps the causes and moves on to the events and the conclusion. The lessons then include a mix of textbook work and source analysis to look at the events of the Revolt, the end of Wat Tyler and differing views on the events. This includes some work around bias and interpretation. Lesson finishes with a poster task which consolidates learning. Lesson makes use of Oxford Invasion Plague and Murder textbook. Worksheet is printable from the end of the ppt, as are the sources.
KS3 Introduction to Slavery
BigfozBigfoz

KS3 Introduction to Slavery

(0)
Lesson following on from looking at the British Empire. Introduces the concept of slavery - the reasons behind it and looks at the Triangular Slave Trade. Class are encouraged to think a lot for themselves about what a slave IS, why it was “NEEDED” and also who benefitted from the trade and why. There is a printable blank version of the slave triangle map at the end of the ppt for pupils to work on (I usually print as a slide and get them to stick it in) - Note: on print preview of this slide it appears as though the map has lots of shapes on it (can’t seem to fix this!) These don’t show up when printed.

BigfozBigfoz

Year 9 lesson - Hitler's Early Life

(0)
Year 9 introduction lesson/lessons to the subject of Hitler. Lesson makes use of video resources (links embedded to Youtube) to explore the early life of Hitler. This is then supported by a timeline task and comprehension work enabling pupils to get an idea about the background of Hitler, where his ideas came from, and how he ended up in charge of the Nazi Party. The lessons finish with a consolidation exercise which introduces the terminology of one of the new GCSE questions - the ‘write an account’ question. Lesson is presented in a clear and self-explanatory way and makes use of the Technology, War and Identities, (1st edition) textbook. This is easily adaptable depending on the resources at your school. Links to Youtube video are included in the ppt. Depending on the class I sometimes substitute this video, or parts of it, for the Rise of Evil (Robert Carlyle) I HOPE THIS IS USEFUL TO YOU. PLEASE LEAVE FEEDBACK OF SOME SORT, EVEN IF IT IS ONLY ONE LINE (!) AS I HAVE FOUND REVIEWS AND FEEDBACK HARD TO COME BY SO FAR!!

Lesson covering the peace treaties which were agreed outside of the League of Nations, including Locarno and Kellogg-Briand. Lesson includes 4 tasks - I usually put these up on the board and explain them and then leave the class to complete the tasks at their own pace - a welcome change for them from the previous teacher-led lessons looking at exam technique. Lesson makes use of the new Oxford AQA Conflict and Tension textbook (green cover)

AQA GCSE History: Germany 1890-45 and Conflict and Tension Exam hint sheet

(0)
One of the most useful resources I’ve produced, I give this to all students for revision. This sheet gives the student a “bite-size” reminder of what is required for each type of question on PAPER ONE of the new GCSE Paper - this example is for in the Germany 1890-45 and the Conflict & Tension sections of the new AQA GCSE history exam. Easily adaptable for other topics on Paper ONE. PLEASE NOTE-I’ve been having real problems with the preview feature. To try and solve this I’ve had to space out the content in word (easily un-doable once downloaded!) I’ve also copied an example of the sheet (looking at question 1) below: 01 How does Interpretation B differ from Interpretation A about…………………�����……… Explain your answer using Interpretations A and B​​​​ (4 marks) For this question you need to compare what is in Interpretation B (the content) with what is in Interpretation A and explain how they are different. Don’t just identify differences – you must explain them. DO NOT explain why they are different – this is the NEXT question.

AQA GCSE History:Conflict & Tension: Lesson 10 - League of Nations - Source Exam work

(0)
Lesson looks at the 12 mark utility question for the new GCSE - goes over the things pupils need to be looking at in a utility question before focussing on analysing two sources - one written, one an image. Both have been used by AQA on their spec materials and the image is a commonly-used one in exams, focussing on the Treaty of Versailles. I usually build in some pupil work around the sources beforehand but have also used this as a group task for analysing sources. Within the lesson there are example sentences, annotations of sources and example answers. Can also be used as a revision lesson.

Year 9 - The Battle of Britain

(0)
Lesson begins by linking to previous knowledge of Dunkirk before moving on to look at the threat to Britain. Pupils learn via video and subsequent teacher consolidation/class discussion the basics of Operation Sealion and the attempts made by Britain to defend itself. Class then watch a second clip which looks at the events of the Battle of Britain itself. They need to focus on the events but also the reasons why Britain was able to win/Germany lost. This is then consolidated with a written task on the PPt and then further via a cardsort/shading exercise (which I often set for homework) PPt and cardsort/shading task are included and the links to the videos are embedded. (First clip only needs to be watched for around 10 minutes). I have updated the link to the second clip with a new version as the old video was removed from Youtube. If this happens again, the clip is from World War II in colour, Episode 3

BigfozBigfoz

AQA A-Level History Democracy & Nazism: War Economy, Speer and Forced Labour

(0)
Group of lessons covering the wartime economy of Nazi Germany, focussing on the work of Speer and the use of forced labour. Lessons begin with a recap of the impact of the war on the different areas of German society - my class had done this work for themselves in the previous lesson so this was just a recap = can also be used as notes to be provided to pupils if time is short! Lessons then focus on the wartime economy, first before the time of Speer and learn how the economy was not prepared for a long-term war (links to previous economic unit). There is a video link to use as an introduction to Speer (can be set as a homework depending on lesson time) and then lesson looks at the work of Speer in more detail, also asking pupils to assess the role of Hitler in the economy’s failings. The work on Speer is complemented by source work on the value of a source. This then continues to look at the impact of bombing on the economy. Final task focusses on the forced labour and gets pupils to look at the issue from a Nazi perspective before asking them to complete a role play - this is then compared with the real events which the pupils were not made aware of until this point. Lesson is presented in an easy-to-use style and Powerpoint is self-explanatory and information sheet is attached References and questions relate to: Oxford AQA History: Democracy and Nazism: Germany 1918-1945
