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.
I used the Napier press textbook by Webb et al to create round of questions on each topic. I award points per question and then a prize for winning team of each round. Bonus questions are separate and whichever team gets closest to the bonus question wins a separate prize. Picture round is open to interpretation and you can award points for the most relevant concept students attach to each picture!
This is a quiz I devised using You Tube clips of songs that I have linked to some of the key concepts I have studied during the Autumn term within SCLY1. I use this as my last lesson before Christmas holidays as it’s fun but still a revision style quiz for them.
I give students the blank sheet with just the concepts on and then I would play the songs from the links on the teacher sheet (audio only), so freeze your board! Obviously don’t play them in the order they are currently in as this makes it too easy! You don’t have to play the whole song, just see how the class are going.
The answers below aren’t hard and fast, students can argue that different songs go with other concepts so just use your professional judgement when going through the answers at the end!
(My students enjoyed the variety of different songs below and I played some of the 80s videos at the end of the quiz as a fun end to the lesson too!)
I devised a pro forma for my AS class to try and plan out their answers to previous questions in the SCLY1 exam as part of revision. This pro forma was to try and help them understand the different types of question involved and answers required in the essay questions.

Update 16/12/15- With reference to alimcg's review, I have updated the links within the presentation so all work and have added the worksheets mentioned. Thanks
A quiz for the end of the media unit- I award points per question and then prize for winner of each round. Each round has a bonus question, and those who get closest to the correct answer win a separate prize. I used the core textbook by Moore, Chapman and Aitken to create relevant questions for this quiz.
