Historical Significance - The 5Rs Method

Historical Significance - The 5Rs Method

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.

Chronological Order (Basic Chronology Activities)

Chronological Order (Basic Chronology Activities)

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.

Jacobite Introduction & Symbolism Lesson (Rebellion)

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.

James I & VI Profile - Who was the King?

James I & VI Profile - Who was the King?

Look for my Civil War Bundle. This is a lesson that makes use of freely available INFO sheets and asks students to extract relevant points from different sources and communicated their answers onto a PROFILE sheet. The ALTERNATIVE LESSON or extension lesson makes use of the different visual sources and poses the question on her he wanted people to see him. Wordsearch and Key Terms can be used for starters or home work assignments. There is a little bit of English bias here. I have tried my best to eliminate it. Personally, I feel he gets a bad rap and is comparable to most monarchs before him and elsewhere in Europe. LO: To select information & communicate it effectively.

Elizabethan Revision Game - Historical Eight

Elizabethan Revision Game - Historical Eight

This is a useful revision resource for the new Early Elizabethan History GCSE Unit from Edexcel and other exam boards. Basically, each unit has a central title and it is up to the opponent/teammate/student to identify 8 key events, people, themes etc that link to it. You can decide on how much time you want to give them. There are more relevant cards and there are even some cards on exam questions from Edexcel. You (or your team) have 30 seconds to name eight historical events, people places etc. linked to a certain theme. After eight rounds you add up the score to decide the winner. 1-32 Players or 2-4 Teams Single player - Narrative Revision: This is a form of revision with which all eight of the Historical 8 must be used to create a story or narrative which meets the criteria of the title. This will aid their recall, as stories are easier to remember than facts alone. This can be a game as well as the partner can judge the effectiveness of the story and award points.
