4 Resources
9-1 Edexcel History Learning/Topic Placemats for Weimar and Nazi Germany The full range of placemats for the Germany course include: Topic 1: Weimar Germany 1918-29 Topic 2: The Rise of Hitler and the Nazis Topic 3 Co-ordination and Control Topic 4: Life in Nazi Germany (The reverse side of the placemat remains the same throughout this study unit). These interactive learning placemats were designed to meet the challenges of the new 9-1 GCSE. They build upon the successful Medicine Through Time Placemats that I previously designed (and which received 5* reviews by all who have purchased them up to the time of launching these new materials – see: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/9-1-edexcel-gcse-history-of-medicine-place-mat-question-structure-11627611 ). The new placemats have been identified as best practice during a ‘Challenge Partners’ review as well as being identified as best practice by other History teachers on the Olevi ‘Outstanding Teacher Programme’. The new design learning placemats support both teachers and students in addressing the: a) dramatic increase in the curriculum content needed for the different units b) support the need for increased literacy demands c) help students become familiar and more confident in recognising the correct response needed for the unprecedented number of different question styles The placemats are designed to be double sided. One side focuses on the CONTENT: providing an overview of key knowledge and understanding needed (this will change for each topic area within this GCSE unit). Every placemat across the GCSE range is designed to encourage greater understanding of: 1. Historical Context - through timelines, picture prompts and key words 2. Awareness of the ‘big picture’ so students can see how individual lessons fit into the unit and make clearer links between prior and future learning – through ‘Big Picture’ questions. 3. Better Literacy – through selected ‘language for learning’ vocab box. 4. Memory prompts to support revision – through the use of carefully selected images. 5. Increased awareness of metacognition – through PME (Progress, Monitor and Evaluation Time) questions to encourage students to deconstruct their learning and identify key factors (eg. Social, economic, political) or key individuals and make links between features. A pictorial metacognition man with 5 question prompts will support student reflection. 6. A confidence thermometer is also included as a prompt to identify student confidence in the topic. The reverse side contains guidance on EXAM TECHNIQUE through: 1. Identifying the nature of the question styles for each GCSE Unit and the allocated marks available 2. Examiners levelled mark schemes 3. Support writing frames with generic sentence starters

Written for Yr 9 but accessible to older and younger students, this lesson introduces the students to the work of Bletchley Park and the British code breakers of WWII. Students will watch the film attached as an introductory briefing. This will be a race against time to re-route a vital Allied convoy around Nazi German U-Boats. Its safe arrival being essential to Britain's ability to carry on the war: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hEu_b24xTYo Students must break three codes to generate a three letter password that will reveal the instructions on how to locate the German U-Boats by opening the locked word doc 'settingtheenigma.doc' . ***You will need to review and edit where necessary, these codes to ensure they suit your circumstances before teaching the lesson. **** This will inform them to e-mail you, their teacher, the U-Boat commander. Upon replying and breaking radio silence you will betray your location and allow to the convoy to arrive safely in the UK. All three tasks can be amended to suit your needs and level of challenge: Task 1 - Requires the students to follow a link to a Flash enabled website. A completed screen shot is included in the lesson plan. You can substitute my code for one of your own Task 2 - Is based upon a Mensa test, with screen shot included again in the lesson plan.You can substitute my code for one of your own Task 3 - Informs students to carry out a specific task in order to find the last letter. You will almost certainly have to amend the instructions in the message to suit your circumstances
