  1. Hi there

    I am going to be teaching AQA Humanities in sept. A very bright group, I would be interested to find out what works well and maybe sharing some lesson ideas ( I will be writing mine over the next few months)

    thanks

  3. Culture and Beliefs... The Amish as in the text books works better than a tribe from South America. Not sure why but the kids were interested in the teenagers of the Amish and how they coped. Nurture V's nature (The boy without a penis... and if anyone has a spare copy of that video how grateful I would be)

    P&P - WE used the Holocaust because they already should have a historical knowledge, Witchcraft, mainly the girls like that one and a case study from the UK. We looked at Stephen Lawerence which still shocks (and so it should) and I also share a personal story with them.

    This is one of the good things about Humanities is the subject matters can change everyday!

    Conflict and Co-operation Northern Ireland... cos of the recent peace settlements.
    Local issues - closure of local A&E Unit etc.
    Mediation in school for frienship issues.

    Environmental Issues - instead of Global warming my lot asked for, then resources, and taught the Oil fields in Canada. (E.I Goes hand in hand with what they are learning in Science).
    Again local issues.

    Global Inequality - Lots of online websites/games to play. I'll get a list together and post them on here.

    Remember - bring things into the lesson that effect them and which they have opinions on and you have their attention. Incude them in the Teaching and Learning - Peer teaching, Colaborative Learning etc and again you have their attention. Bring in Free Trade chocolate biscuits and tea and wow they will love your lessons....

    If only....LOL

    Please just make a list of what you need to know and I'll try to help

    Jay
     
  4. Thanks for the ideas Jay. I'm putting together this course for non-specialists for teaching from Sept and would appreciate any other support, resources or sow that you would be willing to share. Thanks, Marty
