I’ve got some exciting plans for revision materials for the site which should be going live in the new year. In the meantime you can keep up to date with the news from the Kenton History department on twitter:
For teaching tips and ideas, I have been twittering (?) @rosshistory
A few more Mussolini revision materials have gone online – they include revision notes for key question 5 and 6. This covers his economic and social policies in Italy, and also how Italian foreign policy changed between 1922 and 1943. I’ve put the revision question cards from class into a revision quiz video if you’re feeling really keen! http://youtu.be/ITROywalR1c
I have now uploaded resources on key question 4 – how effectively did Mussolini consolidate his political power? This is a really broad question and the examiners have tended to focus on 2 distinct issues - how did Mussolini consolidate his political power, and how effectively did he do it. Make sure you are prepared to tackle both of these questions. The resources and a related video are on the Italy page. The revision dominoes are a particularly good way of learning some of the key examples.
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!
