Did the Suffragettes do more harm than good? 25 minute interview lesson

(3)
Powerpoint, accompanying worksheet for students to complete, evidence packs and a lesson plan for a 25 minute lesson for a mixed ability year 10 class, at the start of the their British History depth study. The class had not previously studied the suffrage movement, so this was intended to be an overview of the actions of the Suffragettes, the Suffragists and the actions of women during WWI, and was intended to help students to make an initial decision about which action was the most effective in women gaining the vote. For the lesson, I glued the evidence packs onto sugar paper and had students move round the packs of evidence after 5mins. I glued source C onto the back of the paper, as the intention was to use that source to challenge the most able students, encouraging them to analyse its provenance as well as its content.
First lesson of Secondary History

First lesson of Secondary History

(21)
A 4 lesson mini-scheme, which could be used as an introduction to History for year 7 students - or for you, if you haven't taught History before! Lessons 1 and 2 give focus to Chronology skills and the importance of Chronology to Historians. Lesson 3 trains students to enquire into sources and evidence, and there is an optional homework task (which could help you to get to know students) included. Lesson 4 is a rapid fire tour through accuracy, reliability, facts, opinion and bias.
Trial and execution of King Charles I

Trial and execution of King Charles I

(14)
Lesson(s) that could follow on from English Civil War topic. Students are introduced to the idea of putting a King on trial, the main activity is then to recreate the trial, which has been divided up into 5 scenes. Students will need time to rehearse, make props and even learn lines - although I always let them use the scripts! Students then watch the whole play and fill in observer forms to put together the whole picture. Students can then decide/debate whether Charles ever had the opportunity of a fair trial. The lesson continues with Charles' execution, a worksheet to complete using source analysis and a creative final task. The execution clip is available on youtube, I usually show the Rupert Everett version (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IPmSR--BktE) though the Peter Capaldi one is usable too (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tqCFSg5xSw4)

Booklet for students: Origins of the First World War - GCSE Unit 1, Topic 1

(0)
Booklet to accompany lessons on GCSE Unit 1, Topic 1: The Origins of the First World War. (I have also included a tick sheet that students could pop into their folders at the start/end of this topic, which lists the content they have covered and gives them space to colour in or tick the boxes - could be useful for a revision lesson before an assessment?)
Oliver Cromwell - News report and assessment

Oliver Cromwell - News report and assessment

(13)
Lesson that could follow trial and execution of King Charles I. Students are given a straight forward introduction to your main man Cromwell, they then work in groups to produce a drama (with their own scripts) of a breaking news story about Oliver Cromwell's actions. Students will need time to read the information they have been given, decide on roles, write scripts and rehearse. Students then watch eachother's reports and fill in an observer form. This could lead to an assessed piece of writing, debating on whether Cromwell was a hero or a villain when he ruled England.
Terrorism through time (Roman and Tudor)

Terrorism through time (Roman and Tudor)

(1)
Lesson that works well at the start of an investigation into Terrorism, and would be well suited for higher ability students. The'cut and stick' starter could be done in pairs or groups, and could be extended into creating a tension graph and comparing this with other pairs/groups, which could open into a debate. Extension activities to stretch and challenge on the back of the worksheet.
Persecution and dehumanisation of the Jewish race in Nazi Germany

Persecution and dehumanisation of the Jewish race in Nazi Germany

(12)
Introductory lessons to the persecution and dehumanisation of the Jewish race in Nazi Germany, with a card sort of laws restricting the rights of Jewish people, and lesson 2 covers the boycott of Jewish shops, Kristallnacht and ghettoisation. When I use these lessons, I tend to finish lesson 2/start a third lesson with the first 30-40mins of Roman Polanski's "The Pianist", although with a disclaimer to students that some scenes are distressing.
