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.

Edward VI : How successful was he?

(0)
In this lesson pupils will assess to what extent Edward VI was a good King during the short time he was in power. As pupils enter the class they will be provided with a portrait picture of Edward and Henry VIII. Pupils will mix and then pair up with a pupil who has the opposite portrait to them. Pupils will discuss the similarities between the two portraits. Pupils will then answer the question: Why has the artist painted Edward in a similar way to Henry? (White boards could be used to showcase visual progress). Pupils will then watch a video (link provided) pupils are encouraged to identify the challenges Edward will face during his reign. The main task is designed around pupils circulating their classroom studying evidence stuck to the walls (9 sheets) gathering and categorising this information about Edward into 'Good King & 'Bad King'. This can then be used to answer an exam style question which assesses 'balance'. Plenary: Pupils will form their overall judgment and can either verbally explain though a whole class judgment line or individually on a sticky note to be stuck to the board. There are plenty of directions this lesson could take and various ways the source evidence could be used to suit your class. A prompt and challenge sheet has been included to stretch and challenge / support weaker students.

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).
