Anyone else teach the AS document paper on Nazi Germany or Liberals and Labour 1899-1918? For A2 I teach Civil Rights in America 1865-1980.
Interested in swapping resources and advice as I'm new to teaching A'level this year.

Interested in doing
Unit 1 : Poverty/Poor Law
Unit 2 : Railways
Unit 3 : Parliamentary Reform
(Builds nicely from GCSE)
Unit 4: ????
Unit 5 ?????
Unit 6 Nazi Germany
Does anyone do similar???
Also, any suggestions/ideas from experience about coursework/personal study OR exam for units 4/5. Easier for students? Why have so many of you gone for exam only route?

I have done unit 5 as courseowrk and found the grades never came out that high as the boundaries are so high for the coursework

Age of Peel
Parnell ( Documents)
Causes and Impact of World War 1
Theme - Ireland 1798-1921
Sorry can't remeber all module numbers -I would be interested to hear from anyone who does the 'open book' examination instead of Personal Study.

We teach AQA Options Q for British and D for European
Britain 1815 - 1841
French Revolution, Treaty of Vienna and Congress System
AS Coursework Essays: Poor Law and Reforms of the Anglican Church
Britain 1841 - 1885
France 1814 - 1914
Cousework: Personal Studies
The one thing AQA does seem to do well these days is A Levels.
I'll happily trade resources, schemes of work with anyone who is doing the same or even thinking of changing.
I've just attached my latest British AS & A2 Schemes of work if anyone would like a copy. I've also included an old but still very good Italian Unification Scheme of work. Our AS & A2 European Schemes are currently under review.
