Edward Jenner and the Smallpox Vaccine - GCSE 1-9 History Source Analysis

Edward Jenner and the Smallpox Vaccine - GCSE 1-9 History Source Analysis

These resources are designed to help students break down the content of a visual source. The Anti-Vaccine Society image ‘The Cow Pock’ is full of suggestions and fears about Jenner’s Vaccination. The presentation highlights some of these and asks students to identify the key features of these segments. This allows the larger picture to then be pieced back together for an overall view of the sources strengths, weaknesses, uses and limitations. The youtube video briefly outlines Jenner’s role in the history of medicine. The worksheet can be used whilst working through the presentation, or afterwards as a means of checking understanding. Not all areas of the famous image are analysed in the presentation. To do so would take more than one lesson in many cases. I’d advise making this clear to students, some will be able to identify additional imagery and it’s intended purpose.

February Revolution: Changes in Russia 1905 - 1917

February Revolution: Changes in Russia 1905 - 1917

The aim of this exercise is to engage learners in thinking about what changed in Russia over the early years of the 20th century. By not making specific reference to the First World War, the task enables them to identify things that have changed significantly in relatively short period of time without being distracted by the war or led to believe that it was solely to blame. Factors such as the war, the 1905 revolution and famines can then be discussed as trigger points. In this way the learners should see that there are changes and some significant examples of continuity that lead to a situation where the February Revolution was a possibility. The task can be used as a longer exercise if each point is discussed and the classes conclusions are shared and debated. However, it is is intended to be used as a shorter activity for pairs lasting 10-15 minutes in total. Delivery in that way presumes a level of prior knowledge. To use as a longer activity, or should you wish to use the task as an introductory exercise, see our accompanying pupil note sheets on the causes of the February 1917 Revolution. Want images to accompany this task? See our Russian Revolution photo gallery on our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/schoolshistory/

The Norman Conquest

The Norman Conquest

A booklet that covers some aspects of the Norman Conquest. It addresses the claims to the throne, the invasion, Battle of Hastings and some of the consequences of the invasion and conquest. This booklet does not aim to go into a great deal of depth on the Norman Conquest. It provides the core information and that can be supplemented with resources such as my worksheets on specific aspects of the invasion and conquest. The booklet has been helpful for non specialists and for learners who have been absent through medium term illnesses.
