This resource is a home guide for students to practice exam questions for the new AQA GCSE 9-1 specification. The questions are tailored towards the following modules: Health and the People, Elizabethan England, Tension and Conflict 1919-1939, Germany 1890-1945. Each type of question for the exam has guidance from the examiner, translated into student babble, model answers, practice questions and key term glossaries from the course.
The guidance is based on my own interpretation of the mark schemes and attending AQA GCSE courses but is by no means a definitive answer- the text books themselves don't provide "model answers." All students before their mock at our school greatly praised the usefulness of this guide to facilitate home learning and plug gaps of an absence of past papers.
Stand alone lesson on the Nazi Economy suitable for the new GCSE AQA specification, resourced with start activity crossword and facility to take information on whether the nazis performed a miracle with the economy in the years 1933-1939.
year 9 lesson suitable for challenging the notion that the first world war was fought exclusively by white people. Worked well with a key stage three low ability group, would need slightly tweaking for higher ability group, but key components all here and ready to teach.
suitable scaffolded lesson to help low ability and ks3 students to interrogate historical sources. This is example is for a picture source showing the English Reformation, works well with picture sources and some written sources carefully selected.
A good lesson to introduce key stage three students to the issues of medieval medicine- we are trying to ensure all topics in key stage three have a focus on the GCSE and this lesson should be a good in-road for that. Works across all abilities and information in the table could be expanded to work for KS4.
