10 BALL GAMES: SUBVERSIVE TEACHING IN 21ST CENTURY. We innovate, constantly. We see the extraordinary in the everyday. We know that real education is about feeding the soul, not just passing exams. We sometimes see children with problems, we don't see children as problems. We re-draw the boundaries of the possible. We survive, despite the slings and arrows of outrageous policy. Freely sharing resources gives us time to do these things. Please help yourself, and play on.

Henry VIII and English Reformation

Henry VIII and English Reformation

Complete notes (basically like a textbook) for AS students. It is written as a chronological account, building in key debates. The reason for chronological rather than thematic focus is because the course has been taught in discrete sections and this is designed to bring it all together. It is not the final, proofed draft and some of the footnoting still needs to be done, but I thought I would upload it in case anyone finds it useful for the imminent exams. I'll post a revised copy when it is complete.

Short Term Causes of WW1

This is a differentiated homework or unit plenary literacy activity. Students link the events that led to the outbreak of war with arrows, writing appropriate connectives on the arrows to explain the relationship. In the first version, the story is broken down into two halves to make it more accessible. Students should link the white boxes first and then try and link the dark boxes and join the two halves of the story together. The 2nd version is more complex as no indication of chronology is provided. the third version is more complex still as vital parts of the story are removed.

Objective is to introduce students to range of key information- what the trenches were like, the difference between the German and English, casualty rates, weaponry, who fought in the trenches, war at sea - without labouring over 'life in the trenches'

Y8 SOW Unit 1 Is absolute power possible?

(7)
Half a term’s planning with resources. My y8 are investigating the theme of ‘power and protest’ this year (y7 is ‘lives of ordinary people’ and y9 is ‘conflict and resolution’ - these are the themes i have chosen in line with the new KS3 national programme of study). This is the introductory unit. so far my students are loving it. its not content heavy, as it allows for much discussion in class. am pursuing the ‘do less, more effectively’ concept with my planning this year!
