The Tudors: Rebellion & Disorder

The Tudors: Rebellion & Disorder

This unit is intended to be completed at the end of the course. However, it is not just a quick revision topic. This is an in-depth overview and comparison designed to really push the students and develop their analytical reasoning. The unit is designed for all major specifications, although some editing may be needed as the specifications change. The sheer quantity of detail within an A level can be lost on students, especially those who are a little more disorganised. This unit helps with seeing events over a whole period and encourages comparisons and contrasts between those events. This unit is very student centred as it encourages their own skills. This is teacher guided but student focussed. The additional worksheet pack would help with this unit. This is a complete unit of work and has a very detailed PowerPoint.

Make Your Own Country

Make Your Own Country

History is full of assumptions in that teachers often assume that students have a certain level of knowledge. Topics that are discussed regularly are very rarely explained because it is assumed that students know about them and understand them. One such example is the ‘state’ or ‘country’. ‘A’ level students will have heard the terms many times but will have rarely thought about what such a thing is, what it means and what influence it has. This unit aims to get the students thinking about what a country is and the decisions that go into its creation. The students will discuss and work together to create their own country and then apply what they have talked about to the states and countries that they encounter in their studies.

Mary I: Rebellion & Disorder Full Scheme of Work

Mary I: Rebellion & Disorder Full Scheme of Work

This unit actively focuses not just on the rebellions that Mary faced as Queen but also the nature of rebellion as well. In order for the students to fully understand, explain and evaluate rebellion they should have thought about what a rebellion is and what it entails. This unit of work has all the details, notes and questions needed to focus on Mary but it also contains activities designed to get the students doing more than note taking. There is a rebellion role play as well as a game based on the student's knowledge of Wyatt's rebellion. The idea is to break the norm of an A level lesson and have the students actively participate and even consider rebelling themselves. This unit also contains a full complex PowerPoint, handouts and notes.

D-Day: An Alternative View

D-Day: An Alternative View

This resource is a counterpoint to the standard view of D-Day in that it focuses on the invasion from the point of view of the Germans trying to stop it. Through three tasks the students will be asked to use their knowledge of the Second World War before 1944 to determine whether or not the D-Day landings were likely to be prevented. The tasks ask the students to develop their arguing skills as well as drawing on evidence they have collected. The key is that it gets the students to think differently and therefore is a vital companion to traditional D-Day teachings.
