Public Health & The Industrial Revolution - 3 lessons

3 Resources
Three lessons that take you from identifying the problems with PH during the Industrial Revolution to analysing the impact of the solutions and government’s intervention. All have been used as observation lessons before (with bespoke differentiation obviously) to great effect. Lesson 11 is a usefulness source based question with a second source as a practice before the real thing - good for fine tuning GCSE source skills regardless of your exam board. They are proving very popular so thought I would bundle them together for people’s convenience. Hope it helps.

ICT - File Manager - IGCSE Edexcel Unit 6 Software Skills (1 of 11) This is a 11 lesson SOW designed to tick all the boxes for Unit 6 IGCSE Edexcel when it comes to File Manager, Word, PowerPoint & Excel. There is still a bit left over (see ‘Advanced Unit 6 SOW) but it covers the bulk of it for these software types. See the features of each/most lesson below – they have honestly been really effective in an International School in the UAE. Each lesson, or pair of lessons, follows a cross-curricular theme as well because I believe ICT is the perfect lesson for Cross-Curricular and if I get my students thinking about other issues as well as picking up valuable ICT skills – then I leave work a happy teacher. A. Video Tutorials (Lessons 1 – 10) B. Interactive Progress Checks (Online Quizzes with instant feedback (Lessons 1 – 8)). C. Literacy , Numeracy and ‘Think’ Starters D. A Cross-Curricular Theme to each topic E. Stretch Questioning and Activities F. Literacy mat G. Lesson plan template. This 11 lesson mini SOW has proved invaluable in covering seemingly basic, but often overlooked, skills ready for the Edexcel IGCSE ICT exam, Paper 2 (which covers unit 6). Taken from a SOW that consists of 11 lessons: File Manager. Word, Part A – Climate change project Word, Part B – Climate change project PowerPoint, Part A – Liverpool FC Project PowerPoint, Part B – Liverpool FC Project. Excel, English Premier League Project Excel, Fortnite Project Excel, SpaceX Project First Test Lesson – WW2 project. Post Test Feedback and all tutorials. Final Test – Solar Company project.

A History of Video Games

A History of Video Games

(0)
Overview: This lesson covers innovations in video game consoles from 1961 onwards. It has a relay activity followed by a written paragraph with peer assessments. Complete with differentiation sheets, plenaries, starters, lesson plan and pedagogy justifications. Cardinal’s Corner: Do not be deceived. This is an incredibly rich and well written book. Yes, it is about video games. But that does not in any way detract from its quality as a piece of writing. The author, David Sheff, is famed for having done one of the last interviews with John Lennon and his articles have appeared in all sorts of publications. It is essentially a history of one of the most culturally important companies of the late twentieth (and early twenty first) century. Nintendo as a company is over a hundred years old and the stories goes right back to its early days in Kyoto as a maker of card games (I’ve actually been lucky enough to visit their original office when on vacation). I got this book free with a computer game magazine when I was in high school. I read it all in about a week – not bad for a 13 year old kid. When I came to re-read it as an adult I found it equally as fascinating and if pushed I would say this was probably my favourite book of all time. It is oozing with anecdotes and provides a depth of historical contexts – from how the Nintendo company survived the second world war to a Cold War legal battle with the Soviet Union over the video game rights to Tetris. A fascinating read – and one that be found on pdf here. Video games are a hugely important part of our recent culture, they’re something that all our pupils are familiar with and they provide a hugely important learning tool. Even commercial games are uniquely powerful at teaching children. I was once astonished in one of my worst Year 9 classes when a child started talking with some confidence about the work of Leonardo De Vinci and asked, entirely unprompted, “Wasn’t he important during the Renaissance?”. Of course, what had he been playing? Assassins Creed. That same game series incidentally hires historical consultants to get as an accurate picture of the past, in the same way that Hollywood movies do. One of the Assassin Creed games features an accurate model of Colonial Boston – based on maps and drawings of the times – in which the player explores and meets key characters, like Benjamin Franklin. I also, perhaps flippantly, swear that is a good grounding in Civilization 2 that got me my GCSE in History and an unhealthy obsession with Sim City that let me cruise to top grades in GCSE Geography. Games are not to be dismissed as learning tools. Indeed, my hunch is that in the near future games will do most of the teaching for us. Keep checking back at Wolsey Academy’s Learning Worlds page to see how that’s coming along. Hope it helps.
