Why couldn't the police catch Jack the Ripper in 1888? Cryptogram Puzzle

(0)
Can your students work out the puzzle code and find out why the police could not catch Jack the Ripper? It is an interesting topic and works well as a bell ringer or introduction to the topic. It also works well simply as a brain teaser for any topic. Students have to work out the letter/number code and fill in the paragraph accordingly. Five letters have been given already to help start them off. I introduce an element of competition to keep my classes focused. Not only do they have to fill in the paragraph they must pick out at least 3 key facts or inventions and be the first to tell me as the teacher. Keeps the students heads down and learning something!

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.
