WWI Home-front: Defense of the Realm Act (DORA) & Rationing.

(0)
This lesson could be used for one lesson. However, to gain the most out of this I suggest using it over a two lesson period dependent upon how much detail / discussion you wish to go into. Hook starter: As pupils enter the room the presentation will display an autonomously moving spot light to reveal a picture clue about the lesson. Learning Intention and differentiated outcomes (SMSC). The lesson is structured in order to achieve the learning outcomes: Expected: You can describe & explain the problems on the Home-front. (SMSC). Challenge: You can explain how DORA & rationing helped overcome these. Stretch: You can evaluate and analyse the impact of government intervention. Activities include a museum walk of propaganda posters, a diamond 9 ranking task of DORA's laws, discussion points from videos (SMSC / modern day link opportunities). Pupils finally consolidate though answering a structured 8 mark exam style question. If time I then ask my pupils to peer assess with WW / EBI. Videos are embedded or I have included the links in the presentation description.

American Civil Rights: Freedom Summer and Civil Rights Act 1964.

(2)
The Purpose of this lesson is to conduct an investigation into the events and impact of the Freedom Summer of 1964 and how this led to the introduction of the Civil Rights Act. Lesson begins with a trailer for the film 'Freedom summer' as pupils enter class they will be handed the Louisiana literacy test to take when they sit down. This is a purposefully confusing text to stop black people from registering to vote. Pupils are then introduced to the Mississippi murders though a clip from "Mississippi Burning' embedded - pupils are encouraged to write a series of questions they would like answered about these murders (they will then be able to answer these later in the lesson). Pupils study the original information booklet appealing for volunteers to enrol in the freedom summer before using this to summarise what it was about. (extension activity included here for more-able pupils) Pupils reflect upon a source of evidence to see what they can infer from it about the events of the campaign. After reflecting upon the evidence pupils will try to answer they questions they set themselves about the murders and how this again gained national attention - pupils will reflect upon an audio clip from part of a speech by President Kennedy to then discuss if he supported the Civil Rights Movement. this can then lead the way for introducing the civil rights act of 1964 - pupils are set a homework to reflect upon to what extent it was successful (linked in with GCSE exam criteria) All videos are embedded (links provided) further advice can be found in the description of the presentation.

Success & Failure: 'The Black Power Movement'.
morlemmorlem

Success & Failure: 'The Black Power Movement'.

(0)
The aim of this lesson is to introduce the concept of ‘Black Power’ to pupils. The lesson begins with pupils inferring and discussing a source of evidence showing a black man tied down by the non-violent events which has happened so far during the Civil Rights Movement - this leads into the introduction of the need for violence to achieve black peoples aims. Pupils watch a short video on the Mexico Olympics of 1968 to help introduce this – before being introduced to the Black Panthers through a listening activity from an interview with Huey Newton and a study of the Panthers 10-point programme. The main task involves pupils studying a card sort and categorizing the successes and failures of the movement. Pupils could mix - pair - share to help do this or simply working individually or in pairs before forming an overall judgment on the success of the movement. Pupils then consolidate their learning with a short video before answering an exam style balanced answer statement question. Further advice can be found in the description of the presentation - all videos are embedded (links also provided).
