The 1936 Reoccupation of the Rhineland

(0)
This lesson is designed for my current Y11 students starting AQA Paper 1 (Old Spec). It covers the content to the event through a detailed piece of writing which students work on independently at first then in groups to complete a worksheet. Students then use their knowledge of the event to practice and self mark a 6 mark question with heavy scaffolding to help students understand accurate exam structure. The lesson content covers the events of 1936 and the reaction of the leading European powers at the time (namely Britain & France) to Hitler’s violation of the Treaty of Versailles. Students consider how/why was Hitler able to get away with it and begin to consider how this could lead to WW2. Please review!

Hitler and the Anschluss 1938

(0)
This lesson is designed for my current Y11 students starting AQA Paper 1 (Old Spec). It covers the content to the event in steps which studentscan work on either independently or in groups. The activity for this can be structured in a carousel if you wish. The event has been broken down in simple points as students can sometimes get a little confused with the names and agendas of people in Anschluss. Each step is accompanied by images to prompt memory. Quick AFL checkpoint in the form of a Pop Quiz is in there. The penultimate task in this lesson is for students to become familiar with the 10 mark question on Paper 1. Students are provided with the answer and have to figure out the exam technique behind it. What do they need to do and what do they not need to do. The question allows students to use prior knowledge of the Rhineland crisis and students then need to consider which event was more significant in causing ww2. Model answer & student scaffold are provided as part of the pack and all resources have been produced to an excellent standard. Please review!

Organised Crime USA 1920s (AQA NEW SPEC PAPER 1D)

(0)
This is a lesson which develops students skills of team work and independent enquiry. Students begin with a team quiz! Students pose their own enquiry (or choose from 2 enquiry questions on the board) based on the ‘hook’ (video). As a team of detectives. Students explore different elements of organised crime with constant focus on their enquiry question. High quality resources (maps/written pieces/statistics) make up the 6 sources. I have printed mine on A3 in colour and laminated. Students use their enquiry research to answer an 8 mark question (this could also be done as a team/in pairs). As alwasy please review! Video of the youtube link included in the pack.
The Middle Passage

The Middle Passage

(0)
This lesson is my 4th in my Slavery scheme of work. This is the first out of 2 lessons on the Middle Passage and is focused around source comparisons in the style of the new 4 mark question for the new 9-1 AQA specification and supports students in looking into the Time, Author, Purpose, Place of a source and how this impacts the interpretation of the source. Like in all my Slavery lessons - I show students a clip from ROOTs for them to visualise the Middle Passage - however this is not an essential part of the lesson and the source activities alone will suffice and easily fit into a 1 hour lesson. If purchased - please review!
