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.

Modern World GCSE Revision Quiz cards

Modern World GCSE Revision Quiz cards

(14)
there are a number of ways of using this resource. a) you can give it to the class as a chain card exercise for a plenary - students read out the first part of their card and then someone else has to provide the answer. You can do this in reverse to be even more challenging? You will notice when you download this resource that the answers dont match the questions (answers have been shuffled down one space and the last answer brought to the top). this is for this exercise b) the correct version of the q&a starts on page 6. these can be used as a memory game. students cut out the strips and fold/stick them backwards so the answer is on one side of a small card and the question on the other. this can be used as a memory game in class, or can simply be given to students as a revision aid c) the questions can be cut up and put in a pot in class on the teachers desk and a few qéa quiz questions done as a starter activity there are separate quizzes on Treaty of Versailles, League of Nations and the causes of WW2 The exercises are easy to add to/amend to suit. It’s just a way of keeping the factual framework in student’s minds to help lessons to focus on skills development rather than factual recall.
Why was the Roman Army so successful? Assessment Resource

Why was the Roman Army so successful? Assessment Resource

(21)
Full resource for teaching the unit that leads up to a levelled essay on the above topic. http://www.qca.org.uk/history/innovating/key3/planning/case_studies/case03/case03_yr7.htm#a considers this key focus question, although suggestion by QCA is of role play so understanding generated by speaking and listening exercises which then lead to written work. This is alternative.
Marksheets for key skill areas

Marksheets for key skill areas

(3)
There are 2 versions of these marksheets - one levelled for teachers and one for photocopying for students. They have been designed around the key skills of the National Curriculum - chronology, knowledge & understanding, interpretations, source work and organising é communicating ideas. The students will not see the levels (although you could easily add them in if you wanted). The idea behind this is that students will focus on the comments made so they can improve rather than becoming complacent/despondent about the level achieved. there is opportunity for student comment and reflection on their work also.
Why did William want to conquer England. Essay structure work

Why did William want to conquer England. Essay structure work

(1)
Another in the series of essay sorts to help students understand how to construct essays. Involves no writing, just thinking, and leaves students with a takeaway product they can use as a model for future extended writing on causation. Builds on a prior lesson where ‘William’ makes a speech to the class about his reasons for wanting to conquer England. also attached
Why did the Schlieffen Plan fail essay writing activity (no writing involved!)

Why did the Schlieffen Plan fail essay writing activity (no writing involved!)

(4)
This activity is designed to help students think about the construction of an effective essay (Nat Curriculum Skill 5 - organising and communicating ideas). The instructions are at the end of the document and hopefully should be clear. It requires some teacher prep in photocopying and cutting up sets, but is truly effective. I have used the same style activity with all age groups, as it is easily adaptable to different topics. With Key Stage 4, i have made it more difficult by presenting 2 different explanations to end each paragraph- one basic, one more analytical. For Key Stage 5, I have included analytical links between paragraphs. Please email me at jordansnotes@yahoo.co.uk if the instructions are not clear! You will see the difference in students writing style immediately. I have also attached a literacy exercise that can be done after this to consolidate understanding of the reasons why the SP failed.

There is a gaming element: students decide whether parliament would accept/reject/modify an act. Each act is worth x points. They can gamble the points in a 'double or nothing' gamble before the teacher reveals the historical reality. Uses original extracts to help familiarise students with reading sources.
