How to answer History DBQ (GCSE) source based questions

How to answer History DBQ (GCSE) source based questions

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. 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.

Who was Jack the Ripper? History Mystery Suspect Tournament

Who was Jack the Ripper? History Mystery Suspect Tournament

Can your students decide who Jack the Ripper was out of a cast of 12 suspects? In this lesson they will compare and evaluate 12 possible suspects before deciding on the most likely guilty person. They will then justifying their decision both verbally and in writing. The lesson works as a knockout tournament, comparing two suspects at a time. They must apply the background information presented to them along with the suspect cards 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 suspect. It also provides me with some fabulous display ideas using the students work! The lesson contains: - 23 slide powerpoint. -12 Suspect Information cards (on the powerpoint to be printed off in handout mode and cut out - they are in colour and also black and white versions to help you save some ink!) - Information handout sheet ont he five acknowledged victims of Jack the Ripper. - 3 page detailed lesson plan. - Tournament structure handout sheet (also on powerpoint in colour and black and white) - The last task is to write a P.E.E.L. paragraph. The lesson is does not contain any graphic imagery, all photos of the victims are from when they were alive. But the written content on the victims, being as it is about a serial killer, is a bit gory. So I recommend this for high school more than middle school.

Middle Ages: How did people FEEL before, during and after the Black Death?

Middle Ages: How did people FEEL before, during and after the Black Death?

This lesson aims to get students empathising with those that lived through the Medieval Black Death. They must put the events of the 1348 plague in the correct chronological order and then consider the emotions people would have felt at those different times. Each student has a set of emotion cards to hold up for each event. When I first taught this lesson I envisaged students holding up just one emotion card for each date and event but they surprised me with the complexity of their thinking and reasoning. Many students were able to use the emotions cards to explain how they might have conflicting emotions when, for example they hear rumours from the nearest town or when the plague has passed them by. Ultimately the students cut and stick the event cards in chronological order and then draw an emotion picture next to it to show how they would feel at each point. They should also write down AT LEAST one sentence explaining why they would feel this way. I use this lesson as preparation for writing their own historical fiction about the Black Death. It works well for character building and character motivation later on. It also helps students to think about cause and effect and the impact on individuals of major events. Lesson contains: 13 slide PowerPoint (print out as a handout to use the events slides as cards) 6 emotion 'cards' (one blank for the students to create their own) An example of student work to give an idea of outcome.

What was daily life like for slaves on a plantation? DBQ full lesson

What was daily life like for slaves on a plantation? DBQ full lesson

This lesson focuses on the primary evidence from the time to describe and explain what life was like for slaves on American plantations in the 19th century. The lesson begins with a desk jigsaw that the students must put together and attempt to work out the topic of the lesson. They then use the source material as a DBQ to identify, describe, explain and analyse. This works well to develop their historical skills. The lesson resources are differentiated by level of activity that match the respective lesson objectives and by the amount of resources they must use for the DBQ. You can use the same with the whole class or if you have a very widely varied ability level you can give out the relevant sheets to match each student. The top ability are encouraged throughout to consider a sources reliability based on the origin, nature and purpose. However, I think all students can begin to do this and evaluate the sources in front of them. Lesson contains: 1. Simple lesson plan 2. A 20 slide animated powerpoint with notes for teacher direction where needed. 3. 3 differentiated source DBQs with differentiated tasks. Thank you for looking

This lesson aims to get students to understand how something as horrific as the Nazi Holocaust could happen in a seemingly civilised society. The lesson focuses on the gradual removal of Jewish people from everyday life in Germany throughout the 1930s. I use the equation of Propaganda + Terror + Laws allowed this to happen.

Artefacts as Evidence - Time Team Investigation

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.

Were the Gunpowder Plotters framed?  History Mystery

Were the Gunpowder Plotters framed? History Mystery

"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.

The Christmas Truce 1914 World War One history lesson

The Christmas Truce 1914 World War One history lesson

This worksheet tells the story of the Christmas that stopped a war. On Christmas Day 1914 the battlefields of Northern Europe became peaceful as soldiers from both the German and British front lines stepped out on to No-mans-land, shook hands, exchanged gifts, sang carols and played football. The very next day they went back to fighting each other. I think this is a really inspirational true story showing the spirit of Christmas. It consists of a 3 page worksheet with 5 tasks at the end. You can use the clip from the film 'Oh, what a lovely war' on you tube to illustrate this. The URL is also on the worksheet. I think this story would be relevant to several ages but you might just want to change the activities. Possibly story get the younger years to storyboard in a cartoon strip instead of answering the questions. I hope your class find this as interesting as my classes have.

Travelling to the New World - source investigation

This lesson could be used when teaching a unit on Elizabeth I and the Tudor and Stuart explorers or as part of a unit on the Native Americans. It would be interesting to use this around Thanksgiving. The worksheet contains primary and secondary sources all focused on the reasons why people left England in the 16th century to travel to America. The students have to identify all the reasons the sources suggest for why people chose to leave England. They also have to identify the origin, nature and purpose of the sources to decide how useful they are to an historian. I have also now added a powerpoint starter looking at the famous painting of the Pilgrim fathers arriving in the USA. This could fit nicely with the history common core changes focussed on the use of evidence and evaluation of sources.
