NB The links for videos are in the notes for the powerpoint. This is an activity on legal rights. The starter is from a worksheet from the Citizenship Foundation.

This is a double lesson (1.5hrs) for Year 10. The first activity was using sources from the US National Archives- students have to answer the questions in groups. The links for the clip (which is on BBC Learning Zone) is in the notes section of the powerpoint. The final part of the lesson, asks students to evaluate the significance of the bus boycott. I scaffold this by giving them all statements (cut up the statements of significance and then give them to students) and get them to move around the room.

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’.

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.

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.
