Henry VIII: How Protestant was England by 1547?

(0)
Complete Lower 6th series of lessons and notes on Henry VIII and religion: focusing here on the question of how protestant England was by 1547. The notes are made from a variety of sources and I use them in conjunction with the ppt to guide pupils through Henry VIII - there is space for them to write their own snippets of analysis. I use these to teach the AQA Tudor course, but could easily be adapted. Any questions or problems then do ask!

To what extent did life improve by the end of the Industrial Revolution?

To what extent did life improve by the end of the Industrial Revolution?

(0)
A lesson I did for an observation trying to reach judgements about whether some of the progress that was made during the IR in terms of technology and medicine compensated for the regression in living standards etc. The card sort has been differentiated depending on ability/reading age. This was used with a fairly good year 8 set, but could easily be modified slightly for up to GCSE.
Is Pressure Group power in decline? Edexcel Government and Politics

Is Pressure Group power in decline? Edexcel Government and Politics

(0)
A lesson I did for year 12 politics looking at pressure groups at the end of the unit. It features a sample answer with a generic mark scheme which is tailored for the Edexcel spec, but could easily be modified for other boards. It is based around the Blooms Game. Pupils work in pairs/threes working their way up the Blooms board on the whiteboard, with team names on post it notes. The questions are cut up on to individual slips and teams can only progress when they have produced a good enough answer that you mark. It gets really competitive and is a lot of fun...and best of all the pupils do a lot of work without really noticing!

The Gunpowder Plot: Were they set up?

(0)
Complete lesson with a variety of activities (including an articulate game as a starter), with pupils carrying out an investigation into different types of evidence to reach a judgement about whether the Gunpowder plotters were in fact, set up. I like to set a homework (I cut out the statements so pupils can stick them in their planners) but obviously could also be used as a writing task in the lesson!

James I: What was he like? Create your own caricature

James I: What was he like? Create your own caricature

(0)
This is something a little bit different trying to get pupils to engage their creative sides. After discussing what exactly portraits can tell us about an individuals personality, by looking at both historic and contemporary examples, pupils create their own caricature style portrait of James, reflecting how certain sections of society view him, or how he even views himself. I've found this to work really well in the past!

Public Health Through History: Overview Lesson

Public Health Through History: Overview Lesson

(0)
A lesson that can be used either as an introduction to, or an overview at the end of the course, of public health through history. Pupils create a graph highlighting the evolution, for better or worse, of public health facilities provided by governments. The 'pics and info' powerpoint slides need to be printed double sided to make sense - with the information on the back
Introduction to the Nazi Party

Introduction to the Nazi Party

(0)
An introductory lesson to the early Nazi Party including a sort card exercise looking at who they aimed to appeal at. Designed for GCSE but could easily be tailored up/down.
Trial of Mary I: Does she deserve the title 'Bloody'?

Trial of Mary I: Does she deserve the title 'Bloody'?

(0)
This is a lesson I put together for an observation: it's quite a large scale role play but it worked 'outstandingly'! Essentially it is a trial of Mary I to decide whether she deserves the title of 'Bloody Mary'. Attached are instructions not just for the court room, but for all of the witnesses called to the stand. There are two powerpoints also: one for the 'prep' lesson and one to put up whilst the court is in session. Wigs and gavel encouraged!
Living Conditions in Industrial Towns

(0)
A classic sources based lesson on living conditions in industrial towns. Contains some links to the present day with examples from the Philippines which I found really gets pupils thinking. I used this for GCSE, but could easily be tailored for Key Stage 3

Henry VIII: Good or Bad King?

(2)
30 minute introduction lesson on Henry VIII and the events of his reign, but could easily be extended.\n\nPupils had already had a brief look at Henry's personal qualities, and this serves as an overview of his reign, before looking at specific events in more detail later on.
