China: Conflict, Crisis and Change 1900 – 1989. Designed for the Edexcel IGCSE Breadth Study but features a wide range of activities and approaches, and is in depth enough, that makes it excellent for all China history courses.

It is a standalone SOW (e.g. you don’t need to refer to a text book) and each lesson is self-contained, with all the information and resources required to deliver at least a Good rated lesson if not an Outstanding one.

Assessment & activity types are introduced and revisited based on a retrieval grid to ensure maximum learning and imbedding of skills and knowledge. Each lesson is estimated to take 45-60 minutes to complete but in my experience many can stretch over 2 or even 3 lessons depending on teacher judgement.


Each lesson features as a minimum:


Numeracy & Literacy challenges.

Keywords (to add to a student glossary).

EAL support sheets.

Stretch and challenge activities.

Teacher Quick Start Guide.

Literacy support mats.

Homework extension task mats.

Context slide for the lesson.
