Oral History: Population Movement 1750 - 1900

(6)
This outstanding lesson has been designed to help students studying population movement 1750 - 1900. It had been field tested and refined many times and is a really fun and engaging lesson, which has a really big impact of students. It can be used with the full spectrum of ability as it includes a range of tasks and activities which can be selected in whole or part to suit your students. You will need access to You Tube in order to be able to access the song. When you download this lesson you will be able to access a Microsoft Word document which contains the lyrics to the song ‘Dalesman’s Litany’ and PowerPoint. There is enough work to fully engage a normal class of students for at least one lesson. The PowerPoint facilitates the lesson and includes aims, objectives, differentiated outcomes, a snowballing starter. The next couple of slides set the scene and explains why Britain’s population was on the move. This is followed up by two source activities which could be print off and completed as an investigation or used as part of a class discussion to help set the scene for the main activity. The next slide is a pro and con thinking skills organiser on the problems facing historians when they use oral history as evidence. This could be competed as an activity or as a plenary. I have included a completed version at the end of the presentation. The next activity involves playing the song by clicking on the hyperlink in show mode. I personally would give students a copy of the lyrics to annotate but if you are short on the photocopying budget then you can get around it by getting them in pairs or groups to write down the jobs / places that the person in the folk song has done / lived to help illustrate the impact of the changes on peoples lives… The aims and objectives for this lesson are: Theme: Why did Britain have an Industrial Revolution 1750 - 1900? Know: Why was Britain’s population on the move 1750 – 1850? Understand: What factors caused this change? Evaluate: How useful is oral history as evidence about the past? WILF: What Am I Looking For? Identify and describe: Why was Britain’s population of the move? Explain: What factors caused this change? Analyse: How useful is oral history as historical evidence? If you like this lesson then why not check out my other resources on this topic in my TES shop. I have unloaded this one for free as its my favourite lesson of all time. If you wish you can also follow ‘The History Academy’ on Twitter, Google Plus, YouTube and Facebook for the latest updates or even to get in touch and chat about how you have used this resource or to ask questions.

Introduction to History Card Game

Introduction to History Card Game

(3)
Dingbats are a great starter, mini plenary or plenary that can add a bit of fun to any lesson, whilst helping students learn important key words for the lesson. This great resource is designed to help students understand and learn about the different types of evidence that historians use as well introduce them to some of the key words that we use like biased and reliable. The resource has been provided them in Microsoft Word so you can easily adapt them for your own classes. There are three main ways that you can use them. Game 1 involves getting students to read out the key words until the other guesses the topic correctly. Game 2 involves additional challenge and stretch by getting students to describe the topic without using any of the key words on the card. The third game, which adds an additional layer of fun or challenge involves playing a round of Pictionary or Charades. I normally give my students 3 minutes of each round to help activate the learning and warm up the class. You could also have a freestyle round where students decide which game they want to play linked to their learning style. If you are trying to engage some under achieving boys, add some competition and get them to keep score in the back of their books. I would recommend printing them off on card and getting your students to cut them out. Then put the cards into an envelope for class use. If you are a student then keep them in your pocket and use them as a flash card to help you learn the key facts, If there is a term that you do not understand then as your teacher or do some extra research. From a revision perspective, you can print off the cards and get your students to learn the key words for a test or for their exams. These are a win, win resource. The kids will love them and they will help to improve your results. If you like this free resource then why not check out my other resources on this topic in my TES shop.

Diamond 9 Activity: Hitler's Rise to Power
Roy_HugginsRoy_Huggins

Diamond 9 Activity: Hitler's Rise to Power

(2)
This great thinking skills activity is designed to get your students discussing, prioritising and deciding which factors were the most important in helping to explain Hitler’s rise to power. The key theory underpinning this strategy is that when we rank items, either statements, objects or images, we are required to make explicit the over- arching relationships by which we organise our knowledge and connect our learning. If you are looking for a more traditional exercise then please check out my card sort matching exercise on this topic, which can be downloaded from my TES shop. This resource will easily work alongside any main steam textbook or resource on this topic. The resource includes nine diamond shaped cards which include a range of factors which explain Hitler’s rise to power. The document is provided in Microsoft Word so you can edit the resource if you wish to customise it further by changing any of the key factors that I have included. Once students have cut out the cards out they are set three tasks including: 1. Remove any reasons for Hitler’s rise to power that you don’t think are important. Record and explain why you have removed them. 2. Arrange the reaming diamonds to show any links that you can find between the different reasons. Record and explain your reasons. 3. Make a smaller diamond shape using what you think are the four most important reasons for Hitler’s rise to power. Record and explain your reasons. At each stage students should be feeding back to their group or the class and explaining their choices. The discussion and explanation around the choices that they have made are critical in helping them develop their understanding of the topic. The aims and objectives of this lesson are: Theme: Germany 1919 - 1945 Know: What factors helped Hitler become a dictator? Understand: What factors are linked together? Evaluate: Which factors are more important Skills: Cause and Consequence WILF: What Am I Looking For? Identify and describe: The key stages to Hitler’s rise to power?

Market Place Activity: Adolf Hitler 1889 - 1933
Roy_HugginsRoy_Huggins

Market Place Activity: Adolf Hitler 1889 - 1933

(2)
This great resource is designed to help students work cooperatively and research the key stages in Adolf Hitler's life from 1889 - 1933. This lesson makes a great observation lesson if you are trying to demonstrate collaborative learning. The PowerPoint includes information, content and sources that can be printed off on A3 for the following stages in Hitler's life 1889 - 1909, 1909 - 1913, 1913 - 18, 1918 - 23 and finally 1923 - 22. This information can be given out to groups or pinned up on the wall. I've also included an optional observation sheet for students to use to record their research. The first activity in the lesson is a snowballing starter of the key words to help activate the learning. The second task, the market place activity can be approached in one of two ways. Your first option is for your five groups to rotate around the information, record their five facts and then move on to the next stage in Hitler’s life / career OR for a student from each group to speak for their table and rotate and share what their group has learnt. The aim of this activity is not just to give students an overview of Hitler's life and his ideas, but to also get them to listen, speak and collaborate as effective learners.
