Starting out in teaching, but aiming to give back to the community, I create resources mainly on 'the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade'. I am new to teaching and welcome any constructive feedback where possible. My aim is to create and share resources which will help any student any where with their understanding of the historical world.

Do Now: Suffrage Interpretation Question

(0)
Excite students with extracts from a statement by suffragette Lillian Ball, taken as evidence for Emmeline Pankhurst’s trial for conspiracy, March 1912, about the window smashing campaign. This differentiated resource is easy to use and adaptable to meet the needs of a variety of pupils. Suitable for low ability, SEN classes and mixed ability. The resource is structured into three paragraphs with gaps for students to embed knowledge, including ‘source evidence’. The resource encourages students to start using quotes in their writing and develops their analytical abilities, enabling any group to start questioning what we learn from a source.

Middle Passage Mind Map

(0)
Inspire your students to use sources with this colourful mind map! Using images of slaves chained under deck, from the Zong, of the Brookes (a painting produced in 1788 to show the gruesome conditions on board a slaver), and an engraving by Isaac Cruikshank, this source brings the middle passage to life and unveils the world of slavery in all of its cruelty. The source aims to excite students by bringing to their attention interesting facts such as ‘some slaves thought they would be eaten by the Europeans’, and ‘sharks followed the ships’. This is a versatile resource which can be used as a starter activity, with a main or as part of a plenary. (Note: websites for the sources are attached in the notes bar to avoid copyright and spaces are left so that you can copy and paste images in and the cover image shows how I used the Mind Map to engage students with a usefulness question).
