The perfect timeline for the new term, a colourful display to show key events around your classroom during the year and help students remember and understand context of when things in society changed. I constructed this based on the areas I focus on in Sociology, History, Politics and Ethics. It has been updated to feature events up to 2016 (Brexit and Teresa May becoming Prime minister).
World war one, World War 2, Different stages of women getting the vote, ( 1918, 1928 and 1970- Representation of the people act), Martin Luther King, Introduction of contraceptive pill, Abortion, Divorce Reform act, Homosexuality becoming legalised, Marriage equality act, Cold war, Equal pay act, Sex discrimination act, Obama being elected,Margaret Thatcher becoming PM and different election victories such as Labour 97, Coalition 2010, Conservatives 2015, London Riots, London Olympics, Scottish referendum , Brexit and Teresa May becoming PM.
This is a quiz initially designed for a mixed staff/ sixth form student quiz event but is easily usable for students from around year 9 upwards. I made a teacher baby photos round that teams filled in during the actual quiz too! This was made in 2015 so the first "current affairs" round would need to be added to!
Rounds included are:
Current affairs/recent news, Science & Technology, Movies, History, Geography, Music, Sport, Music- Audio/Intros round (suggested song clips for intros round), Literature, TV, "Our School" (have left the questions I used but deleted our answers for you to fill in your own!), Christmas, Christmas Number 1s, Christmas Food and Drink.
Each round has 10 questions, all questions either worth 1 point each or two answers for 1/2 mark each. Each round also has a bonus answer, team which get closest to the answer also win a prize, enabling more teams to win and stop one team dominating!
All lessons for the Socialism section of the A2 syllabus. I used the key textbook "Political Ideologies- An introduction- 5th edition" by Andrew Heywood to create brief summaries on several slides as well as activities and ideas to engage students.
I used the key textbook from Andrew Heywood "Political ideologies- An introduction- 5th edition". to create summaries of key concepts and lesson activities. The "Who said what" is a template that has been started and could be completed by students.
