ALL DUE CREDIT HERE: I’ve added to and modified PPT by TES SECONDARY TEAM (which they in turn adapted from alainchristian’s on TES Connect). Isn't sharing ideas and borrowing from others what us teachers do anyway? I’ve added more slides and information and adjusted some sections. I’ve also added a 'trick' question to test if students really know the definition of an anachronism; the photo is certainly something you don't see everyday. Also added- accompanying worksheet and another file with some useful video URLs (hyperlinks removed as per TES requirements) for examples of anachronisms.
Medieval Shogunate resources for Year 8 History including
-A range of lesson information and activities for geography, religion, structure of society, samurai culture etc. (I also use other resources to cover other aspects of the topic not posted here because they are the work of others)
Quality,effective and detailed work but provided without charge in the interest of collegiality.
But for a complete unit of work that is far more detailed, engaging, unique, effective and comprehensive, you can also check out my premium Shogun Japan unit of work- much better than this one, different resources and much more detailed, varied, unique and effective- search 'gcmem' or 'Year 8 History Depth Study Asia and the Pacific World Shogun Japan COMPREHENSIVE Whole Unit of Work Parts 1 and 2 Bundle' athttps://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/depth-study-asia-and-the-pacific-world-shogun-japan-whole-unit-of-work-parts-1-and-2-bundle-11492921 also includes program and assessment task and much much more- 49 resource and activity files are included in the bundle and includes a bonus instant lesson on Attila the Hun. I like to offer most resources free (as I said above in the interest of collegiality), but this one is well worth the fair fee as it is weeks of quality work, completely unique and is a complete unit of work with lots of options for teacher choice and to teach to diversity. Also has a strong emphasis on literacy and numeracy. If you buy one of my resources, it helps me to pay for resources I buy on TES.
