This lesson details the Middle Passage for slaves taken to West Indies and America. The lesson looks at the Middle Passage through ROOTs and through sources (interpretations). Exam technique practiced in the lesson revolves around the Q2 on the new AQA 2016/17 spec. This question is an interpretations questions and gets students to consider the differences in the provenance of the interpretations. As it is a very difficult style question and foreign to what students are used to a very scaffolded worksheet is included. There is guidance to get students to consider the Time/Author/Purpose & Place of each interpretation before analysing them completely. As always lesson and resources have been produced to a high standard of presentation to ensure high levels of engagement. The lesson contains an activity which would require you to have access to ROOTs to watch the Middle Passage scene - it is advisable before watching that students are warned scenes can be distressing and occasionally graphic.
OPEN EVENING HISTORY DEPARTMENT QR HUNT CHALLENGE

OPEN EVENING HISTORY DEPARTMENT QR HUNT CHALLENGE

(0)
Looking for something exciting for Open evening to put your department in the limelight?! I have created a Horrible Histories QR Treasure Hunt challenge. Each QR code links up to a horrible histories video linked to each subject area in the school. There is a principals challenge at the end also (which I am displaying near the school entrance!) Students take their 10 box cards around school with them as they are viewing each department area and seek out the QR codes . Its an exciting activity to keep them motivated and get them engaged with teachers and their parents but also it keeps OUR department in the front of their minds! They will remember history most of all when they walk out of the school! ;) Just ask you very nice repro man to print the cards on A5 paper, the student helpers at the door to hand them to prospective students coming into the school and have the codes laminated and stuck up outside of each subject area. Enjoy!
