I'm a History teacher with experience in the state/independent sector. I've spent several hours attending webinars and training courses and using the AQA website to create lessons for the new specification. I've tried to ensure that every lesson is as simple to understand as possible, with teacher notes at the bottom of each slide if necessary, and with answers provided for any questions/activity.

AQA (9-1) GCSE History - Paper 1 Key Dates Bookmarks

(0)
Bookmarks listing the key dates/events for 2 topics on GCSE History AQA Paper 1 (Conflict and Tension 1918 - 1939 and Germany 1890 - 1945). I get these laminated and students use these throughout the course both in class and at home. These can easily be adapted for any topics, and can be used in a variety of ways, and parents have commented on how they like to use them with students so that they can support them in their revision/studies.

AQA (9-1) GCSE History - Health and the People - Part 1 Quick Quizzes At the start of each lesson you will see a 'quick quiz' powerpoint slide. This document can be given to students so that each lesson they know that the start activity is to take this sheet and to answer, in silence, questions relating to the previous lesson. This is a great way to assess prior learning.

AQA GCSE History (9-1) Making of America - Lessons 1 - 5

(0)
A five lesson introduction to the new AQA GCSE History Making of America course looking at the American West. The resources needed can be printed straight from the Powerpoint. There is NO exam technique/how to answer essay questions in these lessons. I am still working on a resource to teach this to students, so this will be up soon as a separate powerpoint, and teachers can then fit bits into their own lessons.
