Events of the English Civil War Living Graph

(0)
In this activity, students have to evaluate the impact of certain events during the English Civil War on the two sides. Beginning with the Roundheads they must decide how much each event impacted their fortune in war. Print the graph on A3 size paper and cut out the events cards with one set per pair. Once the students have done that for the Roundheads they must move the cards around the graph to show how the same events impacted the Cavaliers. As an extension I ask my students to think outside the box. For example how would these events impact on a peasant woman that worked for a Monarchist? The aim to get our young people thinking about the effect the same events can happen on different people depending on their background and personal experience. It can also be used to discuss ‘key turning point’ and ‘to what extent…’ questions Then I ask them to write up their findings in an extended answer using the P.E.E.L. structure.

I use this lesson as part of a unit on the First World War and life in the trenches. In this lesson the students have to identify the interpretation of the war of two poets based on their poems. Then the students have to write their own poem from either point of view. There is one photo on the presentation that is quite graphic showing mens bodies waiting to be buried. The powerpoint is editable so you could delete this if you do not think it is suitable for your students. I use this lesson with 13 year olds and I've not had a problem with them. Included: - 11 slide powerpoint - handout with the poems on it. - Lesson plan Thanks for looking. ***************************************************************************** TERMS OF USE: This download (free or purchased) is for your own personal use in your classroom or your home.

HISTORY MYSTERY - THE MARY CELESTE!

(0)
Can your students decide what happened to the Mary Celeste and all of her crew? In this lesson they will compare and evaluate 12 possible theories before deciding on the most likely scenario as the 'winner'. They will then justifying their decision both verbally and in writing. The lesson works as a knockout tournament, comparing two theories at a time. They must apply the background in formation presented to them along with the theories to come up with the most plausible answer. It is great for developing higher order thinking skills especially when they have to tease out the strengths and weaknesses of each idea. It also provides me with some fabulous display ideas using the students work! The lesson contains: - 23 slide powerpoint. -12 Theory cards (on powerpoint to be printed off in handout mode and cut out - they are in colour and black and white to help you save some ink!) - 2 page background information handout. - 3 page detailed lesson plan - Tournament structure handout (also on powerpoint in colour and Black and white) Thanks for looking!

The death of Emily Wilding Davison at The Derby in June 1913 was one of the key events of the Suffragette movement in the UK. When she ran in front of the King's horse, Anmer did she intend to commit suicide or was she merely trying to break up the race in protest? This has interested historians for over one hundred years. This lesson asks whether her death was a suicide or a protest 'gone wrong'. Your students must gather the evidence and evaluate it to ultimately come to a decision on what they think. They then use this to write an extended piece supported by the evidence available. The lesson contain: *13 slide animated PowerPoint presentation *A full lesson plan * A clue sheet * Evidence graphic organiser.

Tollund Man Murder Mystery - interpreting evidence using inference

(7)
This lesson is an introduction to the mystery of the Tollund Peat Bog Man and what happened to him. This lesson is designed to get younger KS3 pupils questioning evidence. They have to make a decision as to whether he was murdered, committed suicide or it was an accident. Pupils should work in pairs and the teacher drip feeds the information gradually to encourage pupils to form opinions and have them challenged. They then can present their decision to the rest of the class using the evidence. Contains three worksheets, full lesson plans and a fully animated PowerPoint presentation like a news report.

Was the first Emperor of China a hero or a villain? History Lesson

(0)
In this lesson students are asked to decide whether Emperor Ying Zheng should be remembered as a hero or a villain based on his actions. He was the first emperor to unify the seven warring states of China. The lesson includes: - A handout describing Ying Zheng's a life. - A worksheet with questions and activities for the students to complete. - A powerpoint with instructions and activities and also some recent photographs of the Forbidden City and the Great Wall of China. - A link to a video (3.26 minutes) from the documentary "The man who made China". - Optional and simple essay planning sheets for extended writing. This lesson was devised to go along with a whole unit I teach on China: past and present. The lesson contains cloze questions and higher order thinking tasks. To extend my students I ask them to consider what makes a good leader and can a person be a good leader but still be considered a villain, for example. The preview file only has a sample of the slides. I had tried to make a PDF with pictures of all the slides and worksheets but it was too big to upload! This lesson would work well as part of a world History study as well as being quite timely for Chinese New Year. Thanks for looking and I hope you find this helpful! © A.

Were the Gunpowder Plotters framed?  History Mystery

Were the Gunpowder Plotters framed? History Mystery

(0)
"Remember, Remember The 5th of November. Gunpowder, Treason and Plot?" Get your students thinking like historians and evaluating evidence. In this lesson students have to infer and reach a reasoned judgement based on the evidence at hand. This includes primary sources and secondary reports. The class works in pairs to decide whether Guy Fawkes and his fellow accused were guilty of attempted mass murder or if they were framed by the government at the tim was an excuse to crack down on Catholicism in Britain. The evidence is not given to them all at once, instead the teacher drip feeds it throughout the lesson. This is in a bid to challenge preconceived ideas and see if pupils will change their minds when faced with new data or sources. They begin with a clip telling the traditional story of events from Horrible Histories. Then in 3 minute intervals more evidence is presented either not the whiteboard or on a sheet of clues. The last task is to write an extended piece (like a DBQ) explaining whether or not they believe the men were framed, innocent or (most may say) entrapped. The lesson fits with the common core requirement for students to analyse, evaluate and consider causation and consequence. It is designed for the UK National Curriculum and I have kept in the level descriptors as these may help you with grading your students as they are skill descriptors: ie: identify, then describe then explain then evaluate at the top end of ability. But if not they can be easily deleted from the slides. The zip file contains: - 13 slide, fully animated powerpoint - Clues from the scene worksheet - Answer worksheet - 3 minute clip Horrible Histories (also available on Youtube) - lesson plan description My classes have had great fun with this lesson. It can stand alone or be used a a project, for example on The Stuarts. I hope you find this useful and enjoyable.

How to answer History DBQ (GCSE) source based questions REVISION CARDS

How to answer History DBQ (GCSE) source based questions REVISION CARDS

(0)
In a bid to help our students think more like historians we set them various styles of question based on the sources in DBQs. These helpful little cards can be used with any document or piece of evidence in history. They work for any time period and help our students to address real issues of provenance and purpose. I devised these initially to support the English GCSE OCR History syllabus followed in my school and to help prepare my students for any question that might come up in their end of year exam. However, they would be helpful to any student getting to grips with analysing sources and also how to write to write good answers with an analytical focus. Excellent as revision aids. You can print out the 8, two-sided cards. Fold them over length ways and the correct backing is with the correct frontispiece. One side explains how to address a particular type of question and the other gives examples of sentence starters or good answers. Questions include: - Why was this source published? - What is the main message of this source? - Do you trust this source over another? - How far do you agree with the statement…? - Does the source prove that…? - How useful is this source to an historian?- How similar are these sources? - What could an historian learn from this source about…? I had mine printed on yellow card and laminated for every student in my exam classes. They have proven invaluable to them as they practiced exam style questions in test prep and revision. I hope you and your students find them as useful.

Why did Medieval people go on the Crusades? Interactive PowerPoint Adventure

(0)
If you’re looking for a fun and interactive way for your students to learn about the crusades this PowerPoint-based lesson could be for you. It’s based on the idea of ‘choose your own adventure’ games. Students time travel back to Medieval England and find out the reasons why people went on the crusades to Jerusalem. Students have to navigate their way through the presentation making decisions on who they ‘speak’ to and what they read in order to answer the questions on the question sheet. The students then can use their discoveries to answer the ‘mini-essay’ question: Why did people go on Crusade in the Middle Ages? CONTAINS: INTERACTIVE POWERPOINT QUESTION SHEETS MODEL ANSWER SHEETS I have used this with my classes every year and they enjoy it a lot. It’s just a different way to learn the topic or to refresh their memories for a test. If you have access to a computer suite it works very well as an individual or pair lesson but it easily be used in a teacher led lesson with the whole class. I have done this both ways and it has been successful. With older years (Year 7) it would work well as a supplement to a wider unit on the crusades. I hope you like it!

Artefacts as Evidence - Time Team Investigation
PerfidiaBlackheart

Artefacts as Evidence - Time Team Investigation

(3)
This is an artefact handling lesson encouraging pupils to use objects as evidence about the past. Pupils ask questions in their groups with low and higher order question and question stems. Focus in the 'WH' questions for year 7. Pupils should make inferences from the evidence and 'educated guesses'. You will need a selection of artefacts, they could be weird objects, coins, reproduction documents like ID cards etc. Mixed ability groups work well for an activity like this. The groups can give feedback together or the groups can use 'ambassadors' who then feedback to their own group.
