Hello Year 12 historians! To help with your Easter revision I am uploading a range of resources to the site. Use the ‘Italy’ button above or click here. Aim to learn as much as you can this holiday. Remember we only have 3 short weeks after Easter before the examinations begin…
Don’t forget: our two Easter revision sessions take place in A214 at Kenton School, 9:00 to 11:00 , and 12:30 to 2:30. Both focus on key questions 4 and 5 so you only need to attend one.
Finally, you have a list of all the previous exam questions. Make sure that you have practised planning answers to some of them, and bring in any additional timed essays that you write so that I can mark them.
Don’t forget that our pre-exam booster breakfast is tomorrow [Monday] from 8:15. We will be recapping some key examples, and reminding you of key skills with some example questions and answers. Your exam then starts at 9:15. If you need a copy of the revision notes from Friday’s revision day I have also uploaded them. Good luck!
What a brilliant turn out yesterday! It was brilliant to see you, and it was brilliant that you worked so hard across the 4 hours. And the pizza? That was brilliant too, so well done everyone. All of the revision resources, podcasts, videos, and games are available from the International Relations page, and the USA boom and bust page. The revision dominoes that we used will really help you push your knowledge beyond the C grade, so keep practising.
Remember that yesterday was a kick start to your half term revision. You now need to continue to revise for Monday. The plan that I put together for you, with timings and suggested activities, is online. Remember you can revise more, or in different ways, but make sure that your revision is intensive, short and active.
Remember that the New Deal can be a bit of a scary topic to learn. All of those alphabet agencies, and the different parts of the first and second New Deal can be a bit confusing. However, don’t panic too much because the exam questions tend to focus on three main areas:
- what was the New Deal? In particular the 100 days, and a detailed example of an Alphabet Agency
- why was there opposition? Make sure you can explain two different types
- how successful was the New Deal? Make sure you can provide detailed examples for and against
Year 11, here is the revision powerpoint notes from the lesson. You can also get them as a pdf. The BBC bitesize video clip is here:
Finally, can you remember all the key words on this picture puzzle and what they have to do with the Wall Street Crash?
