GCSE History Edexcel Crime & Punishment Revision Pack Home Learning

(2)
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. The amount of detail is high but key points are highlighted throughout for weaker 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. Information has been taken from both Hodder and Pearson books to keep a balance. Please be kind enough t leave a review if you find this pack useful. I am about to start a differentiated version of this content so watch this space.

GCSE HISTORY Edexcel (1-9) How to answer all types of exam question (Papers 1-3).

(3)
After 2 years teaching the new specification, I have developed these student friendly posters/mats/handouts which will allow students to structure and understand the demands of each type of question for each of the 3 exam papers. —Each contains example sentence starters using the P.E.E.L appraoch. —Source based questions for Paper 1 and 3 also have an additional poster. —Also includes a GCSE literacy sheet with sentence starters and general rules - I have successfully used this with KS3 students. —I personally teach Elizabeth, AW, C&P and Germany and these have been illustrated with example questions. However, I have another ‘blank’ set which you can add to with your own unit title. —On the last slide, I have included 4 sheets which can then be copied onto A3 and laminated for the students if needed. Hopefully these will save people a lot of time and most of all be useful for your students.

KS3 The Industrial Revolution: The causes of the Industrial Revolution Lesson 4

(0)
This lesson investigates the various causes/factors that led to an industrial revolution in Britain. Students will recap the changes that took place between 1750-1900 in a starter quiz, before being given 3 different historical interpretations about why Britain experienced an Industrial Revolution. They then use a fact sheet (previewed) to identify and understand the causes of the Industrial Revolution before deciding which factor was the most important. Students can then be led through a GCSE style causation question where they have to argue ‘how far’ they agree with a historical point of view. A P.E.E. paragraph structure sheet has also been provided to help students structure their answer to meet GCSE standards. For an hour lesson, this will likely take two lessons if used with the P.E.E. paragraphing task.

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.
