This pack includes: 31 fact sheets for each topic needed for the Edexel 1-9 Crime and Punishment GCSE History Paper 1 unit. Each fact sheet can be copied into a revision booklet for students.

Also included are 4x revision diagrams for each period of the study and 4 x example exam question sheets with sample questions from Edexcel’s specimin and sample papers. This will make a perfect revision booklet for the students as I find the revision workbooks currently available seem to lack some detail in key areas.

I am about to start a differentiated version of this content so watch this space.

GCSE History Edexcel Whitechapel Fact Sheets - Revision Home Learning

(3)
l I have created a 9 lesson fact sheet hand out to go alongside the Edexcel Whitechapel Historical Environment unit needed for Paper 1. I am creating this as an alternative to the Hodder and Pearson text books to allow students of all abilities the advantage of accessing the key information in an organised way at home or in school. This should be a great way to cut out the complex nature of the text book and focus in on the important information for your students. Please note, that I have used the PANDA method for evaluating source usefulness in fact sheet 1 and also provided a list of useful ‘follow up’ evidence types in fact sheet 2. The fact sheets are however, intended for subject knowledge only.
