A great resource to teach students how to analyse sources in depth. Uses the OMCAPUR acronym to assist students in remembering what they need to be looking for in a source.
This package includes a PDF PPT document and a PDF worksheet. These can be done remotely, set as a class task, or can be done as a class. I have included some Australian WWI sources that students can annotate and work with so that they can apply the skills they are learning immediately and hopefully cement learning.
Feel free to substitute the sources for any that work for what is being studied.
Hope it is helpful.
This is a lesson I created for a unit on the Holocaust following the NSW Australian History Curriculum. It can be adapted for the Australian Curriculum for both Year 10 History and Senior Modern History.
Feel free to use it in English when studying war or other History topics.
Hope you find it useful! :)
This is a lesson from a Holocaust Unit that focuses on Hitler’s book Mein Kampf as a source. Students learn about Hitler’s ideology and that of the Nazi Party from the study of a documentary about the book.
This lesson includes a lesson plan, the grades, units and outcomes it can cover, the links for short YouTube videos and the Mein Kampf documentary, a documentary worksheet, essay questions, and a Chalk Talk routine poster.
Hope it can be useful to you in your classroom :)
This is a resource that can be used for a cover lesson, as an activity, or for remote learning. All links to videos and websites are hyper-linked so that students do not have to type it out and risk the possibility of getting it wrong.
This activity covers the US Civil Rights Movement with a focus on the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the individuals that played a key role. Students will analyse websites and videos in order to answer questions , and by the end of the activity students will understand the importance of this event on the Civil Rights Movement, the key individuals and their roles, considering sources for their reliability, and the success and impact of the boycott.
I hope you find this resource useful.
This is an assessment I created for Year 10 students (15-16 year olds) for their study of the Holocaust.
We studied the Holocaust in part as a comparative study looking at other genocides around the world - Armenian, Cambodian, Rwandan and Bosnian. In order to give students some flexibility, they were able to choose which genocide they were to look at in conjunction with the Holocaust.
This is designed for a higher ability Year 10 group and would also work for older students.
This task is intended to assist students in understanding who Hitler was, what his ideologies were and his impact while studying Nazi Germany or the Holocaust.
This is a template for students who can copy it exactly or use it to create their own. It is a good introduction activity to assist students in understanding the leader of Germany.
It is a good task for a cover lesson or if you are teaching remotely.
I hope you find this useful.
