PowerPoint Lessons

The following are the PowerPoints to help guide both the teaching and the learning of the enquiry. Lesson 2 is the set-piece lesson that establishes the historical enquiry – developing a felt difficulty among the students that should drive their research. How much really changed in what, on the face of it, looks like a momentous century in British and Jamaican history.
Lesson 3-7 include lots of material, including two additional lessons (4B and 5B) on historical controversies that students completing an AQA NEA at A-Level are required to engage with.

Within all lessons , do not feel the need to cover every slide as long as you are remaining true to the enquiry question, and providing students with a framework and set of sources to work with.

Jamaican Independence

Jamaican Independence – British Pathé News give a particularly British perspective on the nature of Jamaican Independence – with very little reference to either the politics or the history of it all.
Jamaican Independence – An American perspective on Jamaican Independence gives an equally positive view on the events. Cold War undertones are hard to miss – with the Cuban revolution and fears of socialist success not far from the thoughts of US policymakers.
