History Miss P

I have been teaching History for 10 years and have been Head of Department for the last 5 years. I currently teach the 9-1 AQA GCSE course, but many of my resources will and do work for other exam boards. My aims are to create quality resources that get the best out of my students while trying to make my department and myself as efficient as possible to be able to spend more time in the moment teaching. I hope I can save you some time by sharing my resources.

Titanic Ticket hook activity - using real names of passengers and crew

(0)
Bring the Titanic alive with any class with this discussion fuelled hook activity for all ages. Great for History, English and Drama lessons introducing students to the infamous HMS Titanic. This is one of my old faithful resources that never fails to catch the imagination of my students. • 30 names of real passengers and crew including well-known names like Captain Smith, First Officer Murdoch and Bruce Ismay. • Each ticket says the name and class of travel with the correct percentage of each class to replicate the percentage of each class on board the Titanic on her maiden voyage. • Includes teacher information sheet to make it easy for you to facilitate discussion, with information about key passengers, who survived and died and the stats for each class of travel. • New 2020 – Menus and Table signs for each class of travel. I issue the tickets as the students walk in, while playing music from the 1997 film’s soundtrack. They quickly usher themselves to the correct tables following the signs and have the menus to look at while the others find their seats. You may find a few extra props, such as some cushions for First Class and some welcome biscuits or juice can really add to setting the scene. Once settled the real work begins discussing what they already know about the Titanic and its tragic end, as well as who they think might have survived from simply the information on their tickets. The Teacher’s information sheet will make facilitating the discussion quick and easy, with no additional preparation required. It hooks in the students every time and I hope your students enjoy it as much as mine do. If you are looking for more resources on the Titanic, check out my SOW and my Titanic Source pack.

Sources: Who killed JFK? Kennedy Assassination

(0)
Source pack for investigation into the death of JFK. I use this pack to help students research the conspiracy theories of the assassination of the American President John F. Kennedy in 1963. 8 Source pack. Excellent for murder investigation style lessons. Can be used as part of a homestudy task or an in class investigation. Mixture of written and picture sources making it accessible to all. There are some great clips on youtube about conspiracy theories that get the students hooked, then using the sources they can enquire into what really happened. My students have loved trying to prove and disprove theories and discussions can get quite animated as they start to critique the sources and evaluate whether their reliability.

Titanic Resource Bundle
historymissphistorymissp

Titanic Resource Bundle

2 Resources
Titanic source pack and Titanic ticket activity. Titanic Ticket activity to bring the story alive, where pupils get a ticket to the Titanic with a real passenger and crew name on it. They can then try to figure out what happened to them before you reveal their true story. While the Titanic source pack provides 15 different sources to explore a number of different investigations surrounding the events of the Titanic. The main focus is ‘Why did so many people die when the Titanic sank?’ However, they can also be used for reasons why the Titanic sank and what it was like on the Titanic when it sank. Together they are great resources for exploring the sinking of the Titanic, which my students have always loved.

Classroom reward card

Great for any classroom, this reward card is hugely versatile and can be used with nearly all age groups. Everyone likes a good sticker or stamp. Once they fill a row, just like bingo they get a reward. I vary this depending on my classes. Some like a positive phone call or postcard home, others like a good lolly or sweet.
