These revamped lesson resources and event cards on détente are geared for the new GCSE exam spec.
The teaching and learning focus for this term at school is developing independent learning in lessons. Having been asked to take a leading role in this CPD for all staff, I began by summarising some tips and pointers for teachers in this Keynote presentation. Keynote is a great app and was highlighted recently by @ICTEvangelist and @87History on Twitter as an excellent presentation tool. This poster is to be presented in all classrooms at school as the first stage of developing awareness of developing independent learning. I hope it is of use to others.
These Kahoot! quizzes are all related to the GCSE topic – Britain – 1890-1930. Great for revision in the classroom or for students independently test knowledge as part of a revision programme.

I used these knowledge organisers last year for the GCSE topics – Britain, 1890-1930, The Cold War and The USA, 1918-41 – and they proved to be very helpful in the final run-in for the exams. Thought they would be useful and are easy to adapt for other topics.
As part of the revision process, I have been using Kahoot! quizzes with my GCSE classes and they absolutely love them. Kahoot! is such an excellent site to design engaging quizzes, games and surveys. The links below all lead you to my quizzes on different aspects of the Cold War. I will add more once they are written and hope that they are useful for your classes.
