From every pair, one student will impersonate the character chosen last class and the other will be the interviewer.
Make 3/4 questions to your interviewee. Provide the answers to your questions. Make sure your questions are a reflection of the times, the political, social and economic context as well as a clear example of the character that is being interviewed.
Get together with those in your same area: Inventions – The Art – Society.
Together with those in your same area, prepare an opinion panel on ONE of the following:
The role of women.
Changes in health.
Make a jingle to use as a separation between the two parts of the radio programme. Make sure your jingle is on a topic related to the times of the Industrial Revolution.
So far you’ve read about Histagrams and browsed through a number of illustrating examples.
Here’s what we will do now.
In pairs, you will choose a salient figure from the historical period of the Industrial Revolution and you will create at least THREE posts that person could have posted had she/he had an Instagram account/device back then.
A list of options (done by the girls in tutorials) plus an template for the Histagrams has been delivered to yuor email.
Once your images are ready, you will have to post them in your blog together with an explanation for each describing what thew images show and accounting for your choices.
A mind map is a diagram used to visually organize information.
A mind map is hierarchical and shows relationships among pieces of the whole. It is often created around a single concept, drawn as an image in the center of a blank page, to which associated representations of ideas such as images, words and parts of words are added. Major ideas are connected directly to the central concept, and other ideas branch out from those.
Below, you will find some tools to create digital mind maps although you could freely draw yours on a sheet of paper.
Although it would probably be quite inaccurate and one-sided to attribute the full blame of WW2 to Hitler’s regime, it’s the actions of Hitler reversing the terms of the Treaty of Versailles that brought WW2 to a start.
During the 1st part of the 1st Term, we shall be reading and analysing the short term causes of WW2. You will work on oral presentations in groups.
Below, you will find your groups as well as the guidelines to make your presentations.
We are in for a year of hard work and, hopefully, new and interesting challenges!

At the same time, you will need a category in your blog that will be “History” and a subcategory within that category that will be “Essay Writing”.
