China and Japan 1912-1945 Introduction

A well designed and fully resourced lesson introducing Topic 4 of the Cambridge AS Level. Begins with students analysing information sheets to gain an understanding of China in the early 1900s and think about what factors have influenced change. Next students use a Khan Academy video to build a timeline overview of the course. Students then research two key individuals in Sun Yat-sen and Yuan Shikai. There is an opportunity for class discussion before a final tasks in which students extend their knowledge by evaluating the role of China in WWI and the impact of this. Enjoy!

Revolution & Creation of the Chinese Republic, 1911

(0)
A well designed resources that aims to embed knowledge securely. The lesson: Background info Key character profile sheet to research and complete about Sun Yat-sen and General Yuan Shikai. Interact with current knowledge to create a flow diagram of the creation of the Chinese Republic in 1911. Rank and explain the issues facing China: Yuan Shikai and the disintegration of China Information race about Yuan Shikai’s time in power 1912-16. Intro the warlords (which is the next lesson) Further reading task with an article included. Some tasks refer to textbook pages (Cambridge International AS Level, International History 1870-1945 by David Williamson). This could be substituted for another textbook or online resources. I think it is a well structured lesson that progresses through the content well. Any feedback welcome. Enjoy!

Slave Trade Abolition 1807

(0)
Excellent interactive lesson for KS3 on reasons and causes of the abolition of the slave trade in 1807. Interactive starter with links to modern day - something everyone will have held in their hand but wont have realised the reason (great debate point) Keywords Card sort activity in teams (categories on the wall, sort cards into the appropriate one - very interactive and looks great to an observer!) Extension task sorting factors that lead to abolition into actions by blacks and whites 3 Step assessment - excellent summative assessment strategy that guides progress Homework or plenary task that allows students some options or a very nice and successful strategy for the teacher to guide differentiation.

A whole lesson as part of a KS3 Change in Warfare unit. The lesson is completely ready to go. Interactive and engaging. Discussion of a source as a starter. Brief contextual overview Group work to become experts on 1 of 3 case studies of early cannon use. (I have designed the task to produce a news report but could be altered to be an ask the expert task very easily. Information sheets are built into the powerpoint.) Students give their news reports whilst the class collect information about each in a table. Assessment comes in the form of a PEEL paragraph with useful sentence starters. Hope you enjoy :)
