The Tudors: Elizabeth I's portraits and image

The Tudors: Elizabeth I's portraits and image

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 and taken at face value. Students are then given information about each of her paintings and have to analyse and evaluate their meanings and various symbolic codes. The lesson is in PDF and Powerpoint format which allows you to adapt and change if required.

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

AQA GCSE 9-1 History 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 with both PDF and Word files included. Any reviews on this resource would be much appreciated. Please email me for a free copy of my AQA Germany revision summary guide worth £4 if you do.

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

AQA GCSE 9-1 History Conflict and Tension 1918-39: 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 (13 slides) 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 their child’s homework and revision. I have also created a One Drive account where they can also be accessed at home. 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 (which they really struggle with) needed for the exam. I have included both PDF and Powerpoint formats if there is a desire to adapt and change.

Having attended two AQA History Training Courses on Elizabethan England, I decided that I needed to produce and up date this 38 page Revision Guide for my students and include what I learnt.

The British Empire Bundle

The British Empire Bundle

In response to the National Curriculum, I have created a set of resources which focus on ’the development of the British Empire' with depth studies on India and Australia. Students will learn and understand key historical skills. These include historical concepts such empire and colonisation, continuity and change with a focus on the East India Company, the causes and consequences of British rule in India, similarities and differences within the British Empire, the analysis of sources and different interpretations of colonisation such as Australia and finally the significance of people such as Robert Clive and Mahatma Gandhi and their legacy today. The 7 lessons are broken down into the following: 1) An introduction to Empire The lesson aims to find out whether we should be proud or ashamed of gaining an Empire. Students have to explain their choice of being proud or ashamed or both and as the lesson progresses justify whether they are sticking to their original decisions. 2) The British East India Company Students are asked if we should return the Koh-i-Noor diamond, the jewel in the British crown after analysing the evidence. A trading game ensures the students build upon their knowledge of the East India Company and they can then decide and justify if we should be proud of the company's actions in India. 3) Robert Clive This lesson explores the rise and fall of Robert Clive of India. Should he be regarded as a hero or a villain of the worst kind? 4) Focus Study – India The title of the lesson is 'Did the Raj Rock?' and attempts to look at the positive and negative aspects to British rule in India from government and law and order through to the building of the railways. 5) Gandhi and Indian independence This lesson focuses on the role Gandhi played in achieving Indian Independence from Britain. The lesson centers on his life and the part he played in achieving Independence in 1947. 6) Focus Study - Transportation to Australia Claimed by Captain James Cook in 1768, students study how and why the British used Australia as a penal colony. Using a real life example of a young boy sent there for petty crimes, students analyse his and others stories from the start of the voyage through to life in the colony. 7) The colonisation of Australia This lesson focuses on the upheaval of the Aborigines way of life in Australia with the coming of the Europeans. The students have to prioritise the most significant changes the colonists made. Each lesson comes with suggested teaching and learning strategies and are linked to the latest historical interpretations, video clips and debate. The lessons are fully adaptable in PowerPoint format and can be adapted and changed to suit.

The British Empire: The East India Company

The British Empire: The East India Company

The overriding question of the lesson is was Britain in India for the right reasons. The subject matter is the East India Company and a study of how it slowly took over the country of India taking with it a precious diamond and making a fortune out of its trade. Students are asked if we should return the Koh-i-Noor diamond to India, the jewel in the British crown after analysing some important evidence. Students are also given key words to help them with their arguments as to whether the diamond should be returned to India or not. A trading game ensures the students build upon their knowledge of the East India Company and they can then decide and justify if we should be proud of the company’s actions or not. Each lesson comes with suggested teaching and learning strategies and are linked to the latest historical interpretations, video clips and debate.

Having now delivered the course in its first year, I have tweaked the order of lessons I will now teach at the beginning. As well as teaching her court, government and parliament, I have included Elizabeth’s favourites and an introduction to the religious settlement (which are offered as free lessons), as I felt students were getting confused without these aspects of the course being referred to early on.

The lessons are as follows: L1: An introduction to Elizabeth L2 Elizabethan Court and Government L3 Which problems did Elizabeth face in her first ten years? L4 Elizabeth and marriage L5 Who were Elizabeth’s key people?

I cannot stress to the students enough how the rivalry between Pasteur and Koch ticks so many boxes in the factor questions for GCSE. The aim of the lesson is to show how Government rivalry, Science and Technology, Chance, Individual brilliance and Communication all play their part in the discovery of germs and vaccinations. By comparing their discoveries, students have to finish a model answer (Who was more important in the development of medicine; Louis Pasteur and Robert Koch?) which I have started for them using the exam marking criteria for complex understanding and evaluation.

I have devised this lesson not long into teaching my Year 11 groups about Elizabeth I. They have already become confused with all the advisors, favourites and ‘Roberts’ in her life. This lesson attempts to clarify and simplify the role of these men and why she needed them. This is an independent research task as the students find out key information and record it on a grid. The ‘significance’ question in the exam is also addressed as they evaluate their importance to Elizabeth. The lesson can be changed and edited to suit as you may wish to include more individuals at a later date. The plenary and creating a human timeline at the end tests them on their knowledge and challenges their thinking skills. Any reviews on this resource would be very welcome.
