EXEMPLAR RESOURCES

This page shows examples of the type of resources we create at Diverse History UK.

 

We know that all teachers want the best educational experiences, resources and outcomes for all their students. But we also know that time constraints can make this a challenge. We want to make sure that every lesson you teach is exciting, engaging, academically challenging and diverse.

We have created a whole range of resources for schools which challenge many different types of prejudices, stereotypes and misconceptions and examine lesser told narratives. We believe that through examining lesser told histories, students will have a fairer and more accurate view of the world and its citizens.

We are able to set up whole schemes of work to complement your current curriculum or stand-alone lessons to fit into your existing schemes of work. In addition, all our lessons and schemes of work include current GCSE exam skills to ensure your students are well prepared for their GCSEs after KS3. These can be tailored to the exam board your school has chosen.

All our resources come fully differentiated in order to promote outstanding progress in all students regardless of ability.

We can also create bespoke assemblies or workshops for you to deliver.

What light can be shed on the attitudes of Victorian society by the Jack the Ripper murders?

10 lesson scheme of work

 

This scheme of work aims to do justice to the lives of the victims of Jack the Ripper by looking in-depth at their lives before they were murdered. 'Jack the Ripper' is glorified in popular memory while the victims remain largely forgotten aside from their brutal ends. Their stories give students an opportunity to have a close look at the lives of working-class Victorians, in particular women. It considers Victorian prejudices and examines how the virulent sexism in the 19th C shaped the unfounded story that Jack the Ripper's victims were all prostitutes.

To what extent were all young Germans indoctrinated by the Nazis, 1933-45?

10 lesson scheme of work

 

The popular narrative about German youth groups in Nazi Germany depicts an obedient and loyal Nazi following. However, this is far from the whole story. This unit helps students to understand that the brutal image of the Hitler Youth that is commonly perpetuated is only a small part of the story. There were hundreds of young Germans who bravely opposed and resisted Nazi rule. This unit tells their stories.

How can the history of pre-colonial Africa negate the myth of the 'dark continent'?

10 lesson scheme of work

 

Often the mainstream history of African countries taught in Britain depicts Africa as a continent of poverty, warfare and devastation. A continent subjugated and exploited by Europeans. There is truth in this but it defies the wider story of pre-colonial Africa as a continent full of culture, art, education and trade.

The notion of Africa as a 'dark continent' perpetuates racism in our society today. The myth begins to be dispelled by learning the truth of African civilisation and achievements before European colonisation.

What do we owe to the colonies of the British Empire?

10 lesson scheme of work

 

This scheme of work looks at the relationship between Britain and its colonies in such a way that students will be able to see the many benefits, talents, skills and opportunities that people from around the Empire have brought to Britain. Rather than considering the subjugation of the Empire, it seeks to celebrate the many achievements of these colonies and the unique mutual benefits of empire. It also includes a case study of the roles that members of the empire played in WWI. Their stories are often missed out in WWI narratives.
