Margaret Thatcher's Foreign Policy - A Level

(0)
Students evaluate Thatcher's successes and failures in foreign policy. The first slide gives instructions for pre-reading so students are gathering most of the information themselves. A link to a fantastic revision book is included and I also use the Oxford 'Making of Modern Britain' book by JMA Hugh. Pupils make notes of key words and discuss key areas of Thatcher's policy before completing a learning grid on her successes and failures. They then write a conclusion, justifying how successful they think she was. The last slide in the PP is a suggested model grid.

The Conservative Party UK 1997 - 2007

(0)
Pre-reading task for A Level History students. They need a student textbook to complete it. I use Sally Waller's AQA Making of Modern Britain book but also works if they have access to other sources. Pupils need to read about the reasons for divisions in the Conservative Party during this time and make structured notes. They then complete the worksheet showing key figures in the party so that they are aware of their key ideas, roles and jobs. The final task is to seat all the members of the Party around a dinner table, in a seating plan which would cause as little conflict as possible! This lesson prepares pupils to answer an A Level source question on the Conservative Party in opposition. A PP is also available in my shop to help support them with how to structure this specific source question.

PowerPoint that helps pupils revise all the knowledge they need for the topic of 'The Catholic Threat' during the Elizabethan Age.

Making of Modern Britain: Edward Heath

(0)
Introductory lesson to Heath's government. Students are asked to work in groups to curate a museum exhibition on Heath and are given only images that cover all the main events of his premiership. They need to research the background to each of these and prepare a talk on Heath. You will need a textbook for pupils to find the background knowledge from and to print off and laminate the pictures in the PowerPoint. I use AQA's Making of Modern Britain book but any generic A-Level textbook will do, with pupils allowed to use the internet or more specific history books for further research. Success criteria related to L5 of the A-Level mark scheme is used at the end to peer assess the talks. This lessons helps pupils to understand and recall the key events with minimum teacher input.
