Revision clocks to guide revision for students revising the Edexcel 9-1 American West Unit. They cover the whole period and bring thoughts together in a thematic way. My lower ability pupils found them very useful to start their revision.
A booklet which looks at each style of exam question on the Edexcel History specification. Alongside suggested timings, each question the following information:
introduction to the question
how to gain marks
things to remember
It is based on the options that I teach, but it would be easy to change to other units.
This card sort is designed to give students an overview of the course. I have used this resource successfully with a range of ability groups.
Lower Ability Card Sort uses different fonts to break down the crime, punishment, law enforcement method and context in each time period.
Students to decide which time periods are which colour and to build a rough timeline.
Within each time period, students should sort the cards into crimes, punishments and law enforcement methods.
Students could pull out changes and continuities across the periods
Students to use it as a checklist.
Students to make links between different cards e.g. as a thinking quilt.
A selection of powerpoints covering the specification for the NEW EdExcel History course unit on Weimar Germany. This selection looks at the second key topic: Hitler's Rise to Power 1919- 1933.
I have included a range of powerpoints and worksheets aimed at middle ability students. Most powerpoints have extension tasks and a variety of activities. The lessons covered include; the Munich Putsch, how Hitler became Chancellor, the Great Depression and why people supported the Nazi Party, etc.
I have used a range of textbooks to put together my lessons for this unit, mainly the HODDER GCSE HISTORY FOR EDEXCEL WEIMAR AND NAZI GERMANY and an older textbook, GERMANY by Josh Brooman. However, most of the activities would be adaptable to any textbook or information resource.
The lesson includes a match up exercise for the key events in the cattle industry over the period. This lesson is best taught as revision or after teaching the cattle industry in more detail.
Students then identify what is needed in a narrative account question and are asked to assess an example answer. They are then given a narrative account question of their own to complete.
A selection of powerpoints covering the specification for the NEW EdExcel History course unit on Crime and Punishment. This selection looks at the first key topic: Medieval England.
I have included a range of powerpoints and worksheets aimed at middle ability students. Most powerpoints have extension tasks and a variety of activities. The lessons covered include all of the key points on the specification.
This range of lessons was put together based on pre-2016 textbooks. Both the SHP and Edexcel textbooks were used. However, the lessons are targeted towards the new GCSE and so the exam questions and worksheets are relevant to any new textbook being used.
A lesson looking at the Problems of Law and Order after the Pacific Railroad was built. The lesson gives information and requires students to write their own cowboy story which includes accurate and relevant facts.
Edexcel 1-9 History: American West
I produced this booklet when I was running out of time with my year 11s, it allowed them to complete a large proportion of the Whitechapel element of Paper 1 as flipped learning and meant that we could focus on Exam structure and technique in lessons.
I created this powerpoint to deliver a walking talking mock - style session.
There are examples of student responses for each Q as well as slides on structure etc and how to approach each Q.
We didn’t have exam desks set up in the hall so I asked students to complete small tasks instead of writing out the whole Q, although could be used for a formal walking talking mock if these slides are ignored.
