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.

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.

ICT iGCSE Unit 1 Assessment

A short 20 mark assessment for the CIE iGCSE ICT specification. Questions have all been previously included on CIE papers. This would be ideal for an end of unit assessment to test students' knowledge of the different types of computers/printers. Mark schemes can be found on the CIE website; however, all of the questions are relatively straight forward.

AQA GCSE History - Britain: Health and the People

13 Resources
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). These worksheets/activities are designed to supplement other work on medicine and public health.
'Historical Heights' History Display
PaulMid

'Historical Heights' History Display

(0)
Various documents needed to create a 'Historical Heights' display for a History Department, as shown here: http://www.historyresourcecupboard.co.uk/interactive-wall-displays/ (a great idea that I nabbed for my school!) The display consists of several heads of historical figures in a line across the board; however, each head is positioned at the actual height they would have stood (5ft 5in, 6ft 2in etc.) Students love walking past and measuring themselves against Hitler, Queen Victoria etc. Included are several Historical heads, the names/heights, titles and a key for the side of the display. All that is needed are coloured strips that run vertically from the bottom of the display to the relevant head (see link). I used the coloured border rolls for these! Enjoy!

I have also given examples based on the Royal Observatory Environment Study.

Thomas Becket's Murder - Source Assessment

(1)
Source assessment on the murder of Thomas Becket. Quite challenging for Yr 7 pupils, so I would recommend going through one/two sources in class using the Analysis/Evaluation template. Included is the set of 4 sources, a template and a marking grid (that can be adapted to various other assessments). This can be easily differentiated by offering fewer sources or adding more descriptions to the sources.

(0)
This resource is intended for use with the new AQA GCSE unit: Restoration England, 1660-1685. Included are two sample mock exams that I have put together. I have not included questions on the Historical Site as this will change with each year; however, I have created two interpretation questions on the Fire and Plague that fit the model used by AQA. These mock exams can be used after one Half Term's worth of work. There is no coverage of Wars, Trade or Restoration Culture - these will need to be assessed towards the end of the course.

Russia 1894-1941 Revision Dominoes

(0)
A set of 22 revision dominoes for the OCR Russia course, 1894-1941. Can also be used for any course covering the fall of the Tsarist Regime, Lenin and Stalin. Really useful as a starter activity - hand one domino to each pupil and have them read out the date, this should start a chain reaction around the room. My class always want to beat their time! There are lots more dates and events that can be added; however, this is a useful starting point.
