This lesson was originally created to provide context on the slave trade prior to studying the poem ‘Limbo’. However, it could easily be adapted to be a History lesson.
The lesson introduces the slave trade to students using a images, a video, a map, and a writing task. It is designed to be an hour lesson (all links and resources are provided in the powerpoint), but I have found that it takes longer than an hour to get through all of the content and activities included. You may choose to remove/abbreviate some activities to suit the needs of you class, or it could be extended over one lesson.
Extensive notes are provided in the notes section of the slides to aid discussions and provide additional information for teachers.
This lesson has been used as a cover lesson, and it should be possible to just ‘pick up and teach’.
A fantastic resource to help pupils to retain the vast amount of information they need to as now required under the new GCSE specifications.
This excel spreadsheet allows you to input a number of questions in a range of different topic areas. You then press the 'Generate' button and a unique quiz will appear on the next page of the spreadsheet, which has selected 10 questions at random from the master lists you have created. This allows teachers to input questions as they cover different aspects of the curriculum, and then easily generate unique quizzes to regularly give to their classes to ensure that they retain what they have been taught, even when they have moved on to different topic areas. It also means that pupils will never sit the same test twice, so teachers can be more sure of their knowledge.
An invaluable resource for easy and quick assessment of knowledge retention and learning.
