Who was Jack the Ripper? HISTORY MYSTERY

(0)
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! Update! Students can now click to read each suspect’s details on the screen. Save yourself the printing and easier for distance learning too!* 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 on the 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 paragraph, if you would like a framework for this you might like to check out my ‘P.E.E.L. PARAGRAPH LITERACY MATS’ 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.

HISTORY MYSTERY - Did Suffragette Emily Wilding Davison intend to die at the Derby?

(0)
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 intentional 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 contains: 13 slide animated PDF presentation A full lesson plan A clue sheet Evidence graphic organiser. This is great lesson for developing your students’ historical skills as well as improving their knowledge of women’s history and the campaign for the right to vote. The lesson has also been edited to use the phrase ‘intentional’ rather than suicide as this word can be triggering for some people in our classes.
