Historiographia

I have a wealth of resources that are aimed primarily at KS4 and KS5; however, there are some useful KS3 tasks that have been uploaded this year. Topics at KS5 include: Russia and its Rulers, 1855-1941; Later Tudors, 1547-1603; Popular Culture and the Witchcraze of the 16th and 17th Centuries; Italian Unification, 1830-1870; and Germany, 1890-1990. As well as History, I also have a few resources relating to Geography and ICT that some users may find helpful.

This worksheet is intended for use with the OCR unit: Popular Culture and the Witchcraze; however, it could be adapted to suit any A Level exam board. This resource gives an overview of the trend in witchcraft persecution across the 16th century in England. All content is derived from the Access to History textbook and from wider research.

The Great Reform Act of 1832

(0)
Resources relating to the Great Reform Act of 1832. These can be used as part of a wider unit of work on electoral reform (perhaps leading in to women's suffrage?) Included is a summary of the Great Reform Act; a task where pupils have to differentiate between the voting systems of 1830 and 1835; and a PowerPoint presentation for the lesson. Also referenced are two political cartoons that show a for/against view of reform. These should be printed out and distributed for pupils to analyse during the lesson. This is a great introduction to political cartoons, which are used extensively at GCSE.
Rivers Assessment
PaulMidPaulMid

Rivers Assessment

(1)
30 mark (35 minute) test on rivers, flooding and the water cycle for Year 7. This was based on the content from the Geog.1 text books; however, it is suitable for any topic on rivers at KS3. Students have to label a diagram of the water cycle, define key terms, draw diagrams and produce longer responses on flood defences. This assessment should be accessible for lower ability students whilst the longer responses will stretch G&T pupils. There is no mark scheme with this assessment; however, it is relatively straight forward to put one together based on the content that has been covered in your class. I am aware that some content may have been missed out due to time restrictions, so this test is easily modified.
Battle of Hastings and Norman England Knowledge Test
PaulMidPaulMid

Battle of Hastings and Norman England Knowledge Test

(0)
Based around two units from a Year 7 SOW focusing on Norman England (this can be found in my shop). Students are given a range of 1 or 2 mark knowledge questions on dates/names/events/definitions associated with The Battle of Hastings and Norman England. This form of assessment would be in addition to knowledge and source essays to practise the skills required for studying History. Also included is a sheet with answers to all of the questions. The test is 35 questions long (35 marks).
Russian Revolution
PaulMidPaulMid

Russian Revolution

6 Resources

Microsoft Excel: Formulae and Functions
PaulMidPaulMid

Microsoft Excel: Formulae and Functions

(0)
Included are two resources that could be used for a full lesson on formulae and functions in Excel. This would be ideal as an introductory lesson. Students can be given the card sort (laminated) in pairs and must construct various formulae/functions based on teacher instructions. The class can then discuss what 'punctuation' is always the same and can differentiate between a formula and function. Then they can test out their skills, pretending they are the owner of an ice cream shop. They are given a set of sales data for November and must complete various tasks (using formulae, functions and assessing the data). Answers have been provided on the original Excel document. I have given the pupil instructions as a Word file as one key area of learning for me is having students type out information accurately; however, you can easily give them the original Excel file instead.
The Early Modern Witch Craze: Powerpoint Presentations
PaulMidPaulMid

The Early Modern Witch Craze: Powerpoint Presentations

(1)
Five Powerpoint presentations introducing the study of witchcraft for A Level students. I used these as part of the AQA Historical Enquiry module (hence the date range, as it is roughly 100 years between two Acts). I now intend to use these for the new OCR Popular Culture and the Witchcraze unit to introduce some of the key topics. These presentations are designed to be a starting point for anybody wishing to study the early modern witch craze. Due to the breadth of the topic, there is inevitably going to be more information that can be added to these. Please note that these are just basic introductions to the topic and should be supplemented with other resources.

PaulMidPaulMid

OCR A Level History: Russia, 1894-1941

(1)
A revision table to be used in preparation for Qs 1a and 2a of the A Level Russia exam. This table lists some of the key topics that students may be given in the question; they must then list the factors involved in causing this event. Included is a set of possible factors that they may put for each section, although this is by no means comprehensive. They can then use this table for question practice, by choosing two of their factors and writing an answer comparing them.

Popular Culture and the Witch Craze - Ideas concerning witchcraft

(0)
Two useful handouts for the new Popular Culture and the Witch Craze unit from OCR. The first is a summary diagram of developments in Christian doctrine that had an impact on the witch hunts; the second is a summary of contemporary ideas (of elites) concerning witchcraft. These resources need to be used in conjunction with other handouts and worksheets. This resource is intended to be used as part of a much larger bundle for this unit. See my shop for more details.
Heraldry/Coat of Arms Task
PaulMidPaulMid

Heraldry/Coat of Arms Task

(0)
A fun task to consolidate pupils' understanding of heraldry. I used this with my Year 7 pupils alongside the KS3 text book by Aaron Wilkes. Students will need to be introduced to what Heraldry is before moving on to this task. They are provided with tables that detail the various colours/animals/symbols that can be found on Coat of Arms. They then have to think of their own and answer questions. Also included is a blank shield where students can design their own Coat of Arms with a motto (we used the tables for this, e.g. 'Honesty. Strength. Loyalty.'
Suffragettes Visual Sources Activity/Worksheet
PaulMidPaulMid

Suffragettes Visual Sources Activity/Worksheet

(0)
Two worksheets for KS3/KS4 to encourage students to analyse/evaluate visual sources. The content relates to the Suffragettes and the sources show the Women's Suffrage movement in a positive and negative light. Students are tasked with describing the sources, picking out key symbols and inferences. The grid would be a useful group activity where students can analyse the pictures in groups and rotate these every few minutes; the postcard task can then be set for homework.
