Having originally entered into teaching through Teach First, which I completed in a challenging London Borough with a personal grading of Outstanding, I have since worked as a KS3 coordinator and am now a Second in Department (History and Government & Politics) at a leading international school. Every resource I share has been taught in my own classroom. I don't advocate them as the finished pieces, but I strive for innovation and welcome feedback to continue to improve my own practice!

Crime & Punishment Through Time: Introduction & the Roman period
ltjoboyleltjoboyle

Crime & Punishment Through Time: Introduction & the Roman period

(0)
Despite what the sample images suggest, the text does align and fit properly within the slides. I’m unsure why the sample images are showing this incorrectly. Three lessons are provided that start a new enquiry looking at crime and punishment over time, as well as providing the first two lessons of the unit for the Roman period. One additional worksheet is also provided to be used alongside the second lesson. Additional guidance is given in the notes to provide teachers with the necessary talking points. It is recommended that these are read through before delivering the lessons, as the lessons are quite teacher-led. Further resources for the enquiry will cover: The medieval period The Renaissance period The Victorian period These lessons build towards an eventual assessment question: ‘How did crime and punishment change over time?’
Electoral systems (Edexcel spec)
ltjoboyleltjoboyle

Electoral systems (Edexcel spec)

(0)
This lesson provides: A reasonably extensive coverage of the different electoral systems that are required for analysis in the Edexcel specification A scaffold for evaluating the different electoral systems in coming to a judgement between them. A sample question that provides a completely made-up source (so that you can use without fear of reducing the pool of resources already available to students for practicing source questions for this specification). The presentation is best delivered through the PowerPoint presentation mode, as each electoral system slide comes with buttons which will link you to the strengths, weaknesses and specific examples for students to know for each system. Just click on these during the presentation and it will move to the correct slide. I have also used data from the electoral commission to create a visual representation of the % make up of seats that would have occurred in the 2017 general election. On slide 21, an additional version of this image is shown - this shows the actual % split of votes so that you can compare each of the images against it. Each individual circle within these images constitutes 1% of the vote.
