Hi there, I am a teacher of History and Politics, who loves to design and make high quality resources. I have been teaching for over 10 years and previously been both a Head of Department and a Specialist Leader in Education (SLE). I currently teach the 9-1 AQA GCSE course, but many of my resources will and do work for other exam boards. I also teach A-level History and Politics. Teaching can be very time consuming so I hope to help by sharing my resources and my love of teaching.

Titanic Ticket hook activity and full lesson

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.

Sources: Who killed JFK? Kennedy Assassination

(1)
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.

A comprehensive list of video links for any Medicine History GCSE course. I have added times and a bit about their content where relevant. I teach AQA so tend to comment specifically on what is relevant to that course, but this list fits most Medicine through time thematic studies. I have no connection to any of the videos, I simply put the list together to help my students revise and are videos I use throughout the course both in class and as part of flipped learning activities. Do check out my resources on Medicine and specifically the AQA Health and the People course.
