Titanic Ticket hook activity and full lesson

(1)
Titanic Ticket activity with real names of passengers and crew, to bring any study of this tradegy alive. This is one of my old faithful resources that never fails to catch the imagination of my students and they talk about for years to come. • 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. Included are the correct percentage of each class to replicate the percentage of each class on board the Titanic on her maiden voyage. • Includes teacher instruction and 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. • PowerPoint to go with the tickets and with a full lesson to start enquiry into why so many people died when the Titanic died. • 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, but not essential. 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 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 leads on well to the enquiry outlined on the PowerPoint.

Ukraine and interconnected global politics assembly

Ukraine and interconnected global politics assembly

(0)
This assembly has a theme of being connected, looking at Global Politics but also connections on a smaller scale in our school community. It touches upon recent events in Ukraine as an example, as well as the environment and the students’ right to an education. You will get both a clear PowerPoint with images and keywords, as well as a script to help you deliver the assembly, which can all be adapted. It works well virtually as well as in person. The assembly covers how we are interconnected through Politics, economics, environmental issues and human rights. The aim of the assembly was to address recent events in Ukraine, give some information about the UN and NATO, as well as look at wider interconnected global politics and our interconnectedness within our own school community. I have tried to stay impartial on the political side of things and give students a little perspective of the complexity of global issues and organisations. I delivered the assembly to Year 7’s all the way up to 6th Form. I personally used it to promote A-level Politics and have had an overwhelmingly positive reaction to it. I hope your students enjoy the assembly as much as mine.

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.
