Historical Significance - The 5Rs Method

Historical Significance - The 5Rs Method

(0)
Lesson can be used for all sorts - I have used it with Titanic in recent years. The five R's is a method used to break down and examine the historical significance of an event or person. Many historians have different variations of this method. The five R's we will use are: Remembered, revealed, remarked, resonates and resulted. The order does not necessarily matter, neither the need to do all five of them.
Roman Numerals - Impact of the Romans

Roman Numerals - Impact of the Romans

(0)
Resources here for two lessons - Can be one if you have covered Roman Numerals already. Then you can focus on the Extended Tasks. Lesson works as an introduction into Roman Numerals and evolves into how they permeate our lives. This then feeds into the extended tasks and sees how the legacy list connects to now. Mind maps can be used in both lessons.
Chronological Order (Basic Chronology Activities)

Chronological Order (Basic Chronology Activities)

(0)
The PPT is simple and has the images of the "Events - Chronological" to use as a starter and get responses from students. There is also a slide of famous "pop" musicians from different times Then there is a slide that has the images of "Music Chronological" which asks the students to arrange the method for listening to music in chronological order. I have had students attempt this on the board after they have attempted it on the sheet. Many students do not even recognise the items. I suggest labelling them with your class before an attempt if they or you are unsure.

Create a Revision Cube

(1)
You can use the cube as a learning, selection and revision tool. Why not put simple facts on each side? Why not write out key analytical terms to use in your essay? How about putting six individuals that link to one theme?

teacherstevenson

Witches and the English Civil War (James I)

(0)
I also have Stuart and Civil War Bundles. The ALT or Alternative lesson has a greater focus on the shifting attitudes and how it creates the fear of witches. There are sources to examine from textbooks. These files can be edited down so you can use just a few sources with your classes. The regular lesson is very similar but uses original sources from the time. This can be edited down to make it easier for your class. Swimming Sheet can be re examined as homework.

Hundred Years' War Timeline Lesson
teacherstevenson

Hundred Years' War Timeline Lesson

(0)
The PPT presentation is the main resource. The idea is for students to practice their timeline skills and how to extract relevant information from a textbook or PDF. This lesson works best if you have a textbook that the students can use to gather important dates. If needed, you can you the PDFs with dates and important figures. This is lesson 1 and the War of the Roses Timeline Lesson is lesson 2. Lesson 2 is free.

Reading Games: Football, Soccer and Touchdown
teacherstevenson

Reading Games: Football, Soccer and Touchdown

(0)
This is a pack of PowerPoints, PDFs and Documents which explain the game to teachers and students. There are handouts and presentations for you to use. This competition often engages the students and once the game is taught it can be brought back without the resources as the students just "know" the game. The reader must read, but they can read as little and as much as they like. At any point then can call out “Pass to .......”, so that another member of their team can continue reading. The aim for the team is to reach the predetermined stop point. When they reach that they must call out “Shoot” to score a goal.

Amazing Grace - End of Slavery - Abolition Factors GB Lesson
teacherstevenson

Amazing Grace - End of Slavery - Abolition Factors GB Lesson

(0)
This is a good coda lesson after you have taught about the Abolitionists and the End of Slavery in Great Britain. It makes use of the song as evidence and frames the factors behind abolition in a different light. I recommend having different versions of the song, so you can have them playing for students unfamiliar with the song. Home Free Vocal Band have a wonderful acapella version.
Keep Calm Worksheet
teacherstevenson

Keep Calm Worksheet

(0)
A simple worksheet that can be used in class or for a homework assignment. The idea is for the student to generate their own variants of the poster that would fit into a different historical event or time frame. Perhaps "Keep Calm and Ignore the Mongols!" This means it can be used multiple times throughout the year as an assignment. You can edit the Docx file to make it work for other subjects.
