KS5 Edexcel A Level lesson on the British Empire and trade. Focusses on being able to write a thematic essay, using key terms such as ‘turning point’. The lesson uses examiner feedback from the 2017 exam series. You will need to download the examiner’s report to find an example essay to look at. Students create a living graph to help them understand the trends during the period. They then look at a card sort and use the evidence to decide how far different events were ‘turning points’.

How did the British Empire affect Australia?

(0)
This is a 1 to 1.5 hour lesson for Year 9 students on the early British Empire in Australia. The lesson uses the BBC 'In Our Time' series to understand the first encounters between the British and Aborigines. The questions are structured so that even weaker students are able to access the difficult language of this audio clip. This is followed by differentiated worksheets.

This is a taster lesson for Year 11 students to prepare them for A Level History. It could also be useful during the A Level itself when exploring Gandhi, either as an introduction or for revision.

What was the Ottoman Empire?

(1)
An introduction or stand alone lesson on the Ottoman Empire. students have to study the different main events in the Ottoman Empire, to make an A3 timeline, and then evaluate how powerful the Ottoman Empire was at each of these points. An example is given of what the students need to create. I print off the task sheet and photocopy it into A3. I then print off the information slides and give these to the students. With a weaker group a teacher may wish to go through each event slide by slide. There is a challenge task available for stronger students.

GCSE History- Germany Revision

(0)
This is an active revision guide for students which I made to cover the whole of the GCSE Germany content. It consists of questions and answers for the whole period for Germany 1919-39. Students can then test each other on their knowledge, use it for revision, or get family members or friends to test them. I have found it to be a really effective revision guide.

What were the causes of World War I?

(0)
This looks at the four main long term causes of World War I- Imperialism, Nationalism, Alliances and the arms race. Students have a structured way of learning one factor and then teach it to each other. The lesson then asks students to link these to short term factors, using the Horrible Histories clip, with differentiated tasks to complete whilst watching this clip. It finishes with an exam practice. The worksheets are included within the PowerPoint slides, just to make things simple. This lesson was made for a mixed ability Year 9 class, and was 1 hour long. It could be broken into two shorter lessons.

Was Emily Davison a hero

(0)
A lesson on Emily Davison. Can be part of a unit on the Suffragettes or a stand alone lesson on a key figure from history. The 'statements' I used for a plenary exercise for lower ability classes. I handed students different statements. I then asked them to work out if that showed Emily was a hero or not. This helped them formulate an opinion on her actions. Would work for any KS3 class.

Darfur and the UN

Case study on the effectiveness of the UN, focusing on the discovery of Chinese weapons in Darfur. I used it with Year 9, as I am teaching the GCSE from Year 9, but it could be adapted for Year 10 and 11 groups.
Why do people have different opinions about Cromwe

Why do people have different opinions about Cromwe

(2)
I used the X factor to explain why people have different opinions and interpretations of History, because the students always understand why different mentors support their own acts, even if they are terrible acts and can't sing. You can update it each year with the latest acts.
