China: Conflict, Crisis and Change 1900 – 1989. IGCSE EDEXCEL - PART 1 (12 lessons, 1900 - 1935)

12 Resources
China: Conflict, Crisis and Change 1900 – 1989. Designed for the Edexcel IGCSE Breadth Study but features a wide range of activities and approaches, and is in depth enough, that makes it excellent for all China history courses. It is a standalone SOW (e.g. you don’t need to refer to a text book) and each lesson is self-contained, with all the information and resources required to deliver at least a Good rated lesson if not an Outstanding one. Assessment & activity types are introduced and revisited based on a retrieval grid to ensure maximum learning and imbedding of skills and knowledge. Each lesson is estimated to take 45-60 minutes to complete but in my experience many can stretch over 2 or even 3 lessons depending on teacher judgement. Each lesson features as a minimum: Numeracy & Literacy challenges. Keywords (to add to a student glossary). EAL support sheets. Stretch and challenge activities. Teacher Quick Start Guide. Literacy support mats. Homework extension task mats. Context slide for the lesson. Part 1: Lessons included: China History IGCSE: Intro to China & Course Set Up. (with online self-marking quiz) China History IGCSE: Boxer Rebellion Causes & Events China History IGCSE: Boxer Rebellion Consequences & Reforms China History IGCSE: The 1911 Revolution China History IGCSE: 4th May Movement China History IGCSE: Sun Yet-Sen, Chiang Kai-Shek & Guomindang China History IGCSE: Recap Lesson 1: 1900 – 1926 (with online self-marking quiz) China History IGCSE: The United Front & The Communist Party China History IGCSE: Expeditions, Massacres and Exterminations 1926 – 1934 China History IGCSE: Recap lesson 2: 1926 – 1934 (with online self-marking quiz) China History IGCSE: The Long March 1934-35 China History IGCSE: Consequences of the Long March

A stand alone lesson or a great introduction to a variety of topics - using Fortnite trackers as a (worryingly successful) hook. Includes: Business Studies: Mini-Business Case study of Epic Games and it’s unique business model + comparisons to others ICT: Excel formulas, SUM, AVERAGE, adding charts, calculating % increases and using conditional formatting. Maths: Understanding and practice of % increases Features stretch activities and literacy questions, literacy and numeracy settler activity, peer assessments and a plenary quiz. Excel features demonstrated in a series of video clips (embedded in the PowerPoint). ~ Every time my students were given a chance they’d be checking their stats on Fortnite tracker - I figure if pupils are interested in stats this is too good an opportunity to pass up. If you can’t beat them - join 'em.
