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.
Useful for History lessons for all ages and other lessons too.

This is a simple sheet of key events covered by the Edexcel GCSE Unit.
There are multiple version that increase in their complex requirements and understanding from the student. The more terms after “Cold War Timeline” the more tasks the student is given. Look at them all before you decide which one suits your class.

This lesson serves as an introduction to the Jacobites and how symbolism is used by them to export their message of rebellion. The main task is to understand and create a symbol for Jacobite. usage or you could insert Jacobite images and have student analyse the imagery for the symbolism they have just uncovered. There are info and activity sheets for them to complete.
I gained a round of applause from a class after getting the bulk of this done in an interview lesson that lasted 30 minutes. The students continued to work on it after I left! There is enough here for TWO lessons if you have not covered symbolism or any aspect of the Jacobites before.
See other topics and American West Bundles.
GCSE American West is often divided into three topic areas. Word searches for topic 2 cover:
Key topic 2.1 The development of settlement in the West
Key topic 2.2 Ranching and the cattle industry
Key topic 2.3 Changes in the way of life of the Plains Indians
These are 1-page word searches with space for definitions and additional space to have students write out the keywords three times to improve spelling. There are also 2 to page versions which also have a small space below for a single definition and single three-times write up.
These are useful starters and the 1-page versions are appropriate for an extended activity or homework.
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.
