This lesson has been devised for the purpose of giving the new Y6's on transition week a taste of the model and structure of history lessons. There is plenty emphasis on engagement and routine. AFL activities are incorporated into the lesson as are carousel activities, people bingo, sound clips and video links for engaging starters. Resources are included at the bottom of the powerpoint and a set of teacher instructions are also included at the top. Also the instructions & resources for creating your witch tabards are included. The lesson follows the 4 part lesson strategy and incorporates familiar icons used on all my lessons which I have embedded within all department lessons. Students engage in the lessons much more as they appear tidier, more fun and engaging.

Titanic

(0)
An introduction/first lesson to the Titanic for KS3 Secondary students. I have delivered this lesson to both Year 7 and Year 8 History students. The lesson looks firstly at prior knowledge then a literacy comprehension tasks to pull out out facts about the Titanic and gain a broad understanding about why the Titanic is so infamous. Students then look at data showing the different social classes aboard the Titanic and the mortality rates of the passengers. Students use cross-curricular skills and produce a graph showing this data and then using closed questioning for direction students explain the patterns they notice between mortality rates and class of passenger/sex and age of passengers. Additional keypad conundrum game included at the end of the powerpoint.

The Middle Passage
mrshopehistorymrshopehistory

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!
Defending a Castle
mrshopehistorymrshopehistory

Defending a Castle

(4)
A well presented lesson on the ways and effectiveness of defending castles in Medieval times. Students are engaged through detailed, well presented resources. Students are encouraged to design their own castle and its defences. Students are challenged to work in teams and are provided with a king-sized budget to buy the latest medieval castle defences. Students must therefore consider effectiveness against budget. When considering castle defences students are challenged to use prior knowledge on the most effective and damaging methods of attack. This is a lesson that excites students and really engages them in their learning. Take it a step further and challenge groups to ‘duel off’ against each others castles. As always - please review!

(1)
A well presented lesson on the ways and effectiveness of attacking castles in Medieval times. Students are engaged through detailed resources. I would recommend printing out on A3/in colour and laminating resources for re-use. MAP/HAP worksheet included and colour coded to suit. This could easily be adapted further for LAP students to access.

Stone Keep Castles

(0)
This lesson details the progression from Motte and Bailey Castles to Stone Keep Castles in Medieval Britain. The lesson contains a 4 mark describe question to reflect on prior learning. The content covers the structure and features of stone keep castle and then looks further (through means of a carousel activity) advantages and disadvantages of stone keep castles. This would lead well to insert a Paper 1 ‘Interpretations Q’ for the new Spec AQA paper.
