Another menu to encourage independent learning, this time the topic is on the beginnings of the Cold War covering the events between 1945 and 1949.
Have used the simple idea of Blankety Blank as a lesson starter recently with Year 10 and it has worked really well. Using quotes from key people relevant to the lesson or other such relevant phrases, like Blankety Blank, students have to guess the correct word to complete the phrase. In a twist to this, you could also invite students to suggest alternatives – however, some answers could stretch the bounds of taste, so beware …..
These resources are for a lesson on who missed out on prosperity in 1920s America. The resources include a PowerPoint presentation with a starter, main content, tasks and a plenary. Alongside this, there is a cartoon worksheet for an extension activity.
This resource is for a GCSE lesson focusing on explaining why the 1920s was a period of prosperity for America. Hope it is useful.
This blog post is a first – a request from my students about a resource I used today. I have used Dale Banham’s how to write great History mat a few times with my exam classes. They have found it a great help in formulating sentences and structuring their answers. Today. my Year 12s requested that I put it on my blog so they can access it easily. So a massive thanks to Dale Banham for creating this resource – it has been invaluable to my students and has made a huge impact on the quality of their writing and given them confidence to write effectively.
This independent learning/revision menu is designed for my Year 12 class and is focused upon the topic – Henry VII annulment case. Great for setting homework tasks from and it also gives students review and revision tasks to use as part of a revision programme. Thanks to Pete Jackson for this idea.
