Birth of the Railways

(0)
This outstanding resource which I have used many times over the past 25 years in one shape or another during lesson observations with Ofsted and or LEA advisors. It forms part of a series that I have uploaded to the TES on the Transport Revolution 1750 - 1900. This particular resources focus on the birth of the railways up to the period known as 'Railway Mania' in the 1850s. The PowerPoint includes aims, objectives, starters and three activities that are accessible to a wide spectrum of learners. These activities include a snowballing starter of the key words, a heads and tails activity as well as a thinking skills review triangle activity on what were the most important steps / inventions to the birth of the railways. The PowerPoint also contains a number of linked in video clips and animated steam engines. I would like to add that I am not a train spotter, but I've always found that my students, especially the boys have thoroughly enjoyed this topic so put the fun back into the industrial revolution by looking a few machines rather than just focusing on social history. The aims and objectives are: Theme: Transport Revolution 1750 - 1900 Know: Why were the important steps to the introduction of the steam locomotive? Understand: What were the causes of ‘Railway Mania’? Evaluate: Why did the railways rapidly grow from 1830 – 1900? Skills: Cause, Consequence, Significance and Source Analysis WILF: What Am I Looking For? Identify & describe: The key inventions that were necessary for the invention of the locomotive? Explain: What was ‘Railway Mania’? Analyse: Begin to come to a judgement on which factor to the introduction of the railways? Anyway, have fun with this resource. They are full editable. If you like it, then please check out some of my other resources on the building of the railway and their impact of the economy. Kind Regards Roy

Why did US farmers not share in the prosperity of the 1920s?

(0)
The aim of this resource is explain what problems US farmers faced to get students to assess why they didn't share in the prosperity in the 1920s, The aims and objects are as follows: Theme: Dark side of the US boom in the 1920s Know: What problems faced farmers in the 1920s? Understand: What impact did Republican policies & mass production have on farmers? Evaluate: How far were the problems of US farmers caused by government policies? WILF: What Am I Looking For? Identify / describe: What problems faced farmers in 20s? Explain: The impact of government policies and mass production on the price of farming produce? Analyse: Which was the most significant problem? The resource begins by setting out the aims and objects. The starter is a snowballing activity, instructions included. The first part of the presentation then looks at the impact of the First World War and mass production on the plight of the farmers. It then looks at the impact on their income and spiraling debt problems. The next part of the presentation then looks at the impact of overproduction on the environment and minority groups such as Alack people and Hispanic Americans. The avatar then introduces an alternative interpretation of why farmers didn't share in the prosperity of the boom by looking at the roles played by Republican policies such as tariffs, prohibition and laisse faire attitudes that resulted in the problems of the farmers being furtherer compounded. The plenary activity focuses on a thinking skills review triangle, which aims to get students to decide which factors were the most important in preventing farmers from sharing in the prosperity of the boom. This slide could be printed off. It should be pointed out that their is no definitive answer, but the group or pair work around this task is designed to promote discussion and class debate to later help students with their assessment questions. The assessment section includes 4 questions from OCR or the Oxford and Cambridge exam board. The first is a describe, the second is an explain and the third is an essay question. The final question is a source based question which could be used as either a starter or a plenary. I have also included pupil mark schemes which could be used to get students to either mark or peer assess their work.

Study Guide: Why did US farmers not benefit from the economoc boom during the 1920s?

(0)
This outstanding study guide, worksheet or assessment for learning pack has stood me in good stead over the years and looks at the problems facing US farmers in the 1920s. As you can see in the preview panel, the information is broken down into carefully crafted bullet points to aid the learner both in lesson and during revision. Each section is consolidated with an activity which is suitable for the full range of foundation, core and advanced students. I usually read the study guide with my students who are suitably equipped with highlighters to help them summarise and pick out the key facts. On page 2 of the guide I have included a flow chart to show the vicious cycle of debt and poverty that the farmers got caught up introducing the new mass production technologies to agriculture as a spider graph created by my own students summarising the key facts. The consolidation task is a thinking skills review diagram that is designed to promote discussion and debate in groups before feeding back to a class discussion on the IWB. Page 3 of the booklet has two past paper questions from OCR. I always get my students to work there way through them to build up their confidence, but you could always direct certain learners to particular questions as part of your differentiation. The first question is a describe, whilst the second is an explain question. On page 4, there is a full OCR essay question which requires an introduction, main body and conclusion. In the next section, I have also included a n Oxford and Cambridge source analysis question 'on what is the message of this cartoon.' In the final section of the booklet, I have included self help guides for each question to help students write their answers as well as pupil mark schemes which can be used to peer and self assess their work. I always use my visualizer to demonstrate and model mark on my IWB. If you like this resource then why not check out my other resources on this topic in my TES shop.

Anti-Semitism - The Nazi attack on the Jews 1918 to 1945

(3)
These resources / unit of work looks at why the Nazi persecution of the Jews became more extreme from 1918 - 1945? The first few chapters look at the status and position of German Jews in 1918 and then moves on to look at the Nazi rise to power and the propaganda, economic, legal, physical attacks on the Jews from 1933 - 1938. Each chapter is designed with revision and summary sections. I have also included some of my Smart Notes with aims, objectives, differentiated outcomes, starters and summary diagrams to accompany the booklet which you can adapt as you go along. T he next section then looks at the impact of the war on the next stage of the attack on the Jews by looking at the forced segregation and isolation through ghettoes, which was followed by the work of the Einsatgruppen Battalions as the German Army advanced into the USSR. My booklet then asks the question why did the Nazis then decide to move to a 'Final Solution' before moving onto the industrial methods and tactics used to murder the Jews through 'Destruction through work ' and 'special treatment.' The final section or conclusions then explores some of the historical controversy surrounding how far the German people should be blamed for the persecution of the Jews. If I have quoted from a primary or secondary source then full attribution has been given whenever possible. Please note that my resources were written for a British audience so you may want to run them through your US / local spell checker. Some of the key questions or learning outcomes, which these resources explore are listed below: • What impact did the FWW and Treaty of Versailles have on Germany? • How successful was the Weimar Government at bringing economic and political stability to Germany? • What was the status and position of German Jews in 1920? • What impact did the Great Depression have on the support for extremist parties in Weimar Germany? • Why did Hitler become Chancellor of Germany in 1932? • How did Hitler consolidate his power in 1933 – 34? • How did the status and position of Jews change from 1933 – 45? You need to know about: • What rights did German Jews have under the Weimar Constitution? • Why did hatred of the Jews increase from 1919 – 1933? • Why did the Nazis launch a propaganda attack on the Jews? • What impact did the economic attack have on the Jews 1933 – 38? • What impact did the legal attack have on the status and position of Jews living in Germany? • Why did the Nazis launch a physical attack on the Jews in 1938? • What impact did the Second World War have on the Jews in Europe? • Why did the Nazis introduce the Final Solution in 1941? • How did the Nazi regime use industrial methods to persecute the Jews in the Holocaust from 1933 -45?
