Popular Culture and the Witchcraze of the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries

Popular Culture and the Witchcraze of the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries

Several resources relevant to the OCR A Level unit, Popular Culture and the Witchcraze. Included are revision diagrams, worksheets, maps, tables and graphs that cover both popular culture and the witch-hunts. These resources will supplement work from the Access to History textbook, which is needed to complete some of the note-taking activities. These resources are primarily for use as revision aids and possible homework/class activities. As this is a new specification there are no stand-alone units of work out there; however, I hope these resources help!

Various resources relating to the AS/A Level topic: Unification of Italy, c.1830-1870 from Edexcel. Included is a detailed PowerPoint that introduces the topic of nationalism and major thinkers of the period in Italy. There are also handouts that supplement this work, where students can use their course textbook to make notes/answer questions on the viewpoints of the different political/social groups in Italy.

Germany, 1871-1990: Teacher notes

A 60+ page booklet with detailed teacher notes relating to the Edexcel A Level unit: Germany, 1871-1990. Please note that (as many schools will be doing), the first Depth topic (Germany 1871-1914) will be covered by another teacher for coursework, therefore this resource only covers the period from c.1914-1990. These notes have been taken from a variety of textbooks and history books; they are the perfect aid for teaching this unit or could be used to supplement existing knowledge. The knowledge and content here can be easily adapted to suit other exam boards.

Unification of Italy, 1830-1870: Garibaldi's Expedition to Sicily

Included is a lesson plan that details the structure of the lesson and possible questions to ask students. The starter activity involves students cutting and sticking the cards to the relevant places on the map (chronological order); they can then go back and highlight key details. Then, as the teacher goes through the PowerPoint presentation, students should be adding in further details to their sheets. Finally, a primary source has been included to relate all of this back to the exam. I have also included some teacher notes for further detail on some areas.

Unification of Italy, 1830-1870: A Changing Italy Card Sort

An activity created in support of the Edexcel AS Level unit: The Unification of Italy, 1830-1870.

Each page contains either: 8 maps, 8 events or 8 dates. Students are required to match up the dates, events and maps before putting the matched-up sets in chronological order. This would be a useful started during a revision lesson towards the end of the course, or the maps/dates cards could be used at the very beginning of the course to get students speculating what may happen.

Lower ability students could be given this to support note taking or this could be shown on a projector and talked through in class. To accompany these materials, I have put together a detailed PowerPoint presentation to introduce the content. It provides an introduction to the subject as well as a summary of the 1830 Revolutions.

Unification of Italy, 1830-1870: Teacher Notes

Unification of Italy, 1830-1870: Teacher Notes

A set of teacher notes that I created over the summer in preparation for first teaching of the Edexcel unit: Unification of Italy, 1830-1870. The notes follow the order of the Hodder text book by Podesta; however, both the Pearson and Access to History books have been used to supplement this information. The date range begins in c.1815 to give some context in the run up to the 1830 Edexcel start date. This resource is intended to be used as a start point for teachers who are new to this topic; they will find even more information in the text books listed above. The resource has been created using Word 2013 in its Notebook layout, so the formatting may be slightly different if opened in a print layout format.

Lower ability students could be given this to support note taking or this could be shown on a projector and talked through in class. I have also included a PowerPoint presentation that can be used as a walkthrough during a lesson on this topic. Please note that as this is an independent learning lesson, the PowerPoint presentation is used for guidance, it does not include all of the answers!

AQA GCSE History - Britain: Health and the People

AQA GCSE History - Britain: Health and the People

A number of resources relating to the new AQA GCSE unit, Britain: Health and the People, c.1000-Present. Although these worksheets have been specifically designed for AQA, they could be adapted to suit any 'medicine through time' unit from another exam board. However, many of the worksheets require the blue Health and the People textbook from Hodder. Included are various worksheets, PowerPoint presentations, assessment activities and a bumper exam pack (filled with possible questions). Please note that these worksheets are not comprehensive of the entire course. As the course content is huge, these worksheets/activities are designed to supplement other work on medicine and public health. Nevertheless, they will no doubt save teachers a lot of time!

These resources are intended to be used as part of a wider collection of activities/tasks on modern medicine, as they are not comprehensive of this chapter in the text book.

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 Witchcraze: Thematic Table

Popular Culture and the Witchcraze: Thematic Table

This resource is intended to be used alongside other resources relating to the OCR A Level topic: Popular Culture and the Witchcraze. This revision table should be used at the very end of the course, or could be completed section-by-section as students work through the content. The table lists the most common themes that feature in the course down one side, with the 3 case studies (+ Europe) appearing along the top. This table will therefore help students when writing thematic questions, as they should ensure that they can draw content from a wide geographical and chronological area.

I have also included a guide to Q4 along with an exemplar answer written by a student of mine.
