The Tudors: Elizabeth I's portraits

The Tudors: Elizabeth I's portraits

The aim of this lesson to find out about the hidden messages in Elizabeth I's portrait paintings. Students learn about how Elizabeth manipulated her portraits and added symbols each of which had a hidden meaning. The introduction to the lesson looks at anachronisms and modern day symbols put into portraits to get the students thinking how pictures should not always be seen at face value. Students are then given information about each of her paintings and have to analyse their meanings and various symbolic codes.

AQA GCSE 9-1 Revision Guide: Germany 1890-1945

This is a revision guide tailored to the new AQA Germany 1890-1945 specification for GCSE. I have again been inspired to write this not due to a lack of revision guides for Germany out there (as there are plenty and of good quality), but because I needed to tailor it to suit the new GCSE specification complete with the types of questions and the skills on how to answer them for my students. Therefore this revision guide includes practice questions throughout on the 6 main questions and gives examples of model answers. The information is also broken down into an easy to use format to aid the students in their revision programme. I have also included some useful mnemonics for specific areas of study which have really helped in past GCSEs. This Guide has been designed to be engaging, detailed and easy to follow and can be edited and changed to suit. Any reviews on this resource would be much appreciated.

AQA Conflict and Tension 1918-39 GCSE 9-1 Revision Flashcards

I have produced these flashcards in another bid to get my Year 11's revising and focusing on the forthcoming GCSE exam. I use these 78 flashcards in revision sessions and intervention after school. They have proved a great success and it also gives the students something to take home and revise. I also email them to parents so they can keep track on heir child's homework and revision. They need cutting down the middle and folding; the students then test themselves and each other, removing the ones they recognise and retaining those they don't. The flashcards contain the main events, people and key words needed for the exam.

Civil Rights in America: The Little Rock Nine

Civil Rights in America: The Little Rock Nine

The events and actions surrounding the Little Rock Nine are now infamous in history. This lesson gives the background to the beginning of the desegregation of American Schools with the Brown vs Board of Education case of 1954. Yet Orbal Faubus, the Governor of Arkansas found this difficult to accept and unleased a tidal wave of protest from his actions in Little Rock, shown in this lesson through video footage and images from the time. Ultimately the students evaluate the impact of the Little Rock Nine and how they influenced American society today.

Civil Rights in America: How significant was Rosa Parks to the Civil Rights Movement?

Civil Rights in America: How significant was Rosa Parks to the Civil Rights Movement?

This lesson analyses and evaluates the part Rosa Parks played in the Civil Rights Movement. Modest to the end, her one action inspired a generation and she is still talked about with reverence in American society today. (NB - Oprah Winfrey’s Golden Globe speech on 7th January, 2018.) Students learn about Rosa Park’s background and events leading up to her refusal to move seats on a bus, brilliantly shown through some video footage as well as documentary evidence. The learning tasks and the accompanying resources are differentiated to suit all abilities as students reflect and evaluate her most important significance to American society today.

AQA GCSE 9-1 Revision Guide: Elizabethan England, c.1568-1603

Having attended an AQA History Training Course on Elizabethan England, I decided that I needed to produce this 35 page Revision Guide for my students and include what I learnt. Within the Guide, there is a particular emphasis on how to answer the four main questions. At the start, it gives tips on how the students can access the questions and also gives advice on how to put this into practice with model answers given from the exam board. There are also four pages in the Guide dedicated to the Environmental study, Hardwick Hall with a focus on second order concepts. I also sought confirmation from the AQA course leader and Elizabethan expert, Carmel Bones that this section was correct and equipped the students to answer 16 mark question correctly. This Guide has been designed to be engaging, detailed and easy to follow and can be adapted and changed to suit. Any reviews on this resource would be much appreciated.

The Second World War: Adolf Hitler, man or monster?

The Second World War: Adolf Hitler, man or monster?

This lesson is an introduction to Hitler which can be used either at key stage 3 or 4. It aims to challenge preconceptions and assumptions that Hitler was a monster from birth, determined to commit mass murder and genocide. His early life from his parents, schooling, his move to Vienna and his life as a soldier are scrutinised as students have many opportunities to make judgements which are ultimately challenged by the end. The lesson includes a lot of visual evidence (such as Hitler’s propaganda posters) and well as video evidence of his life as a boy. There is a differentiated research activity in which there is a chance for students to conduct their own independent investigations before reporting their final conclusions to the class. This lesson would also be ideal for a non specialist.

AQA GCSE 9-1 Medicine Revision: How to answer the factor question

AQA GCSE 9-1 Medicine Revision: How to answer the factor question

This PowerPoint, which can be delivered over two lessons, is my attempt to make the factor question in the Medicine exam more easily accessible for all students. A question that we think is an easy one for them to answer in fact causes the students the most difficulty. I find students begin to panic and forget everything they have learnt over the course; many answers become scrambled into meaningless waffle or into a few sentences. Using the register as a way in, students are quizzed on their knowledge of individuals and what they contributed to medicine (the second lesson will be more effective in this task). A model answer is given to them, only for it to be dissected and the ‘waffle’ identified and highlighted. Video footage is also used to show how factors helped Edward Jenner made his discovery, as an alternative to written evidence. Some key assessment tips are used, which the students have to apply to their own independent research. Finally students are properly assessed using a recent specimen question which comes complete with an up to date mark scheme from the exam board and my own student friendly mark scheme to peer assess in class. I have also included a copy of a Medicine Summary Revision Guide which I usually sell separately for the AQA exam board, but in this case will help the students in their homework revision for this assessment.

The Tudors: A Sea Voyage in Elizabethan times

The Tudors: A Sea Voyage in Elizabethan times

The aim of this lesson is to take students for a voyage of discovery on an Elizabethan sea voyage. They take on the role of a Tudor sea farer and experience the excitement, fear, hardship and brutality of the Tudor navy as they learn which supplies they need to take and how to read the ‘latest’ maps and navigational tools at their disposal.They can sample the delights of food rustled up by the ship’s cook as some forgo fruit for salted meats and the dreaded ship’s biscuit. They also become involved in a naval sea battle and learn the terrible destruction rendered upon the wooden ships and its crew. Each character card has a symbol upon it which also denotes a special surprise awaiting the crew member as the lesson unfolds. The lesson is complete with music, video footage and a chance for a sing a long with a sea shanty. Extensive notes accompany each slide, but be prepared to bring in items for discovery for the Tudor explorers. In the final differentiated activity, students fill in the ship’s log with an account of all they have learnt.

The causes of the Great Fire of London

The causes of the Great Fire of London

This is a fun and challenging lesson, designed to question and evaluate the causes and consequences of the Great Fire of London in the summer of 1666. The hook is Samuel Pepys; why did he bury his cheese and why did he bury it alongside items that were surely more valuable? The lesson comes complete with differentiated resources as students have to plot the causes and consequences of the fire on a visual display. Extensive notes have been put on each slide denoting how to deliver the activities and answers to some of the questions posed. This lesson is active, exciting and engaging and would also suit a non specialist.

These flash cards aim to get the students thinking of the importance of individuals in Medicine (GCSE Medicine Through Time). I always find students have revised the individuals thoroughly for exam time, but do not push their grades into the higher brackets as they focus on content rather than impact. There are 33 individuals listed; students can use them in class (I use them as starters and plenaries) or to take home and use for their own personal revision programme. I also display them in the classroom (enlarged) and use when focusing on the topics.
