A Level AQA History: Classroom and Homework Activities

A Level AQA History: Classroom and Homework Activities

20+ activities enable students to get to grips with the important events discussed in each unit, while developing an understanding of the key questions and themes to be tackled in order to succeed in the exam.

Great for students…

  • Engaging, interesting activities build knowledge both in depth and synoptically
  • Logical structure considers the overview of each topic before zoning in on the most important themes and events
  • ‘Extension’ thinking activities challenge your most-able students – and are also the basis for useful essay practice

Great for teachers…

  • Every activity matched to a spec topic and an AO
  • Ultimate flexibility! Varied tasks of different lengths can be used for homework, classwork and even cover lessons.
  • All resources included for an easy, pick-up-and-teach resource – with indicative content for all activities

Plus handy overview grid with key activity information, including timings, group size and assessment objective coverage – great for quick and easy planning!

Thought this was a useful resource, especially as there is only 1 revision guide available – my revision notes.
Particularly liked the good variety of activities eg timelines, table fills, comparison tables, research, diagrams, before and after, debate and grid fill.
It enhances learning by splitting the syllabus into manageable sized chunks, reassuring especially to the less able. Its educational value is that it sticks closely to the specification and there is a good balance between As/A content/questions. It also has extension work for the more able.
Presentation and layout are clear – not too crowded.
It matches/interprets the spec sensibly e.g. the chronological approach.
Liked the way the answer question was separated from the questions-more teacher friendly. – L Ashley, HoD & Peer Reviewer (10448 – Option 1D: Stuart Britain & Crisis of Monarchy)

A pretty nice resource with ideas for lesson or homework activities for when you are lacking in inspiration. It is in chronological order so activities are easy to find. Everything is there and ready to simply print and use alongside a presentation, books or notes. It is easy to dip into when required. Some good tasks to help students grasp the fundamental building blocks of history as well as cement their knowledge of the topics. Great for flexing the history muscles of cause and consequence, significance, change / continuity etc with simple tasks which work. The activities can speed up planning and are easy to slot into a lesson. Some tasks are nice and concise so would work well as starters and plenaries whilst others involve independent research or synthesizing from notes or books. This promotes resourcefulness and independence. Great for any study of Weimar and Nazi Germany. Translates really well to other specifications due to the nature of the activities. Covers all of the main topics so you could use at least one activity from this resource in every lesson. Well worth investigating if you teach this period of history. – J King, Lecturer & Peer Reviewer (10308 – Option 2O: Democracy and Nazism 1918-1945)
