Malcolm X - PPT and Source Activity GCSE Civil Rights

Great mystery PPT to introduce the character of Malcolm X. Students are presented with primary sources from Malcolm's background and make decisions about the type of person Malcolm was and infer what was likely to happen to him in life. Students are always surprised to learn this is actually Malcolm X. A great way to introduce a key character of the Civil Rights Movement.

An excellent bundle of 1920s Entry Tasks to promote retention of key information. Used together with the tracker, this helps to track student progress on subject content. I have used these each lesson and keep going back to repeat quizzes to consolidate learning. Students enjoy the challenge of regular low stakes quizzing and these have had a marked impact on the progress of all students.

I have used these each lesson for the delivery of this course and it has helped all students to retain the information better. Every lesson I start with a new quiz and keep returning to different quizzes to keep checking that students have fully learned the information. A quiz tracker is included, which students record and update to show their progress. I have seen a marked improvement in retention and the students have given excellent feedback on these.
