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.

How I help students write essays, from KS3 to 6th form. I've tried to make it as much a step by step guide as I can. It is quite detailed, but has examples to clarify.

Life in Trenches Carousel Activities

(31)
Students have work book to complete. There are a series of activities which can be arranged on different desks or given in a pack to students. The order of completion does not matter. The activities could also be done as standalone activities or homeworks Activities include - -source work activity on shell shock victims -jigsaw of a cross section of a trench -a sorting exercise for health hazards where students have to categorise various health hazard cards (in their own categories) and then prioritise greatest threat -a memory game for ‘who served in the trenches’ designed to encourage students to think about the nature of imperial warfare and to challenge preconceptions about british and french v the germans -war statistics (taken from spartacus) work -a literacy exercise on equipment - fair amount of reading but limited writing - define the terms for a ‘historical dictionary’ including as much detail as possible in 50 words. details of the activities are in the student booklet but do not have to be done like that, they are just an idea for teachers on how to use the resource

Mary Queen of Scots Story - Visual Memory Exercise

Mary Queen of Scots Story - Visual Memory Exercise

(26)
The teacher tells the story of Mary, Queen of Scots dramatically with visual supports. Then provides students with a jumbled chronology as consolidation, which can be stuck in their books, or collected in and a single sheet with the correct chronology on it provided (depending on the class!). Is designed to appeal to visual learners and develop listening skills for all. Is enjoyable and useful lesson and sets the context for the ‘what should Elizabeth do with Mary’ debate.

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!

Break with Rome Circles Activity

Break with Rome Circles Activity

(8)
Was browsing an old Teaching History and saw an article by Steve Garnett which have immediately stolen! It’s really simple and really effective. Basically, a large circle in the centre of a page represents a concept, e.g Bismarck’s foreign policy (Steve’s example) or the Break with Rome (my example attached). Other circles placed strategically, in terms of size and location, represent key influences on that issue. Could also be used for effective essay planning.

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.
