Made during the 2020 lockdown for remote learning it is a pretty comprehensive resource (if I may say so) that covers the whole topic and includes:
See the promotional video here:
18 tailor-made teacher videos
18 factsheets on the 18 key topics*
18 literacy/essay writing challenges** (1 per key topic)
5 Google Quizzes (and printable versions)
1 Stretch and Challenge Project
A website here: www.wolseyacademy.com/russianrev that houses all the resources and links.
It took a very long time to produce and I am very happy to now be able to share it for free. I would suggest setting it as an ongoing revision or homework task, the teacher videos mean that it can be used for self-study also.
The target audience was mostly for international school settings so I have tried to use accessible language where possible and each topic comes with a set of keywords to develop vocab skills.
*If you spot any mistakes please contact me via the website above and if you think it has come in useful I would love to see your reviews on the TES (makes me feel a bit better!)*
Hope it helps!
As a man with a great beard once (sort of) said: Teachers of the world unite, you have nothing to lose but your chains.
