Hi,

Anyone got any ideas on how to introduce the Industrial Revolution to miidle ability relatively dissaffected groups? They are pretty good at pair/group work. I would really like something exciting!

Thanks,

Chris

There are some excellent ideas in Alison Denton's seminar on this period. http://www.schoolhis...?showtopic=3211

I've used the BBC history website which has some animations on the Industrialisation section. Also found this site which goes through the change from domestic to factory system using pictures and text

Have you seen Chris Wilde's Walks on the Wilde Side??

Also see this thread about it here on the Forum:
http://www.schoolhis...?showtopic=5019

That link takes you to the beginning of the thread, but the later posts there are probably more helpful since direct links are given to various parts of the site and you can see how Chris has responded to the feedback given here.

It really does look to be fun and engaging material.

Cheers for the plug Carole! :wub:
Indeed, if your looking for exciting material for the Industrial Revolution, then there's only 1 site to look at, Walks On The Wilde Side!
Take some time to look around, there's 12 complete lessons there! It is based on Industrial Newcastle, but the lessons can be adapted to be made more relevant for any area!
Check it oot,
