History: Taster activities

Hello and welcome to a taster session for A-Level History. You may already know that you have a choice between our ‘early modern’ and ‘modern’ courses. These taster sessions introduce you to one topic from each of the options. Have a go at working through the brief activities. They may help you to decide which topics you want to learn more about! Follow us on Twitter – @priestleyhis – for more. Please get in touch if you have any questions about the course.

There’s also a quick quiz to help you work out your favourite period of history. This is just for fun!

The resources below are here to help you with this session. The documents can be downloaded to your device and web links can be viewed online. 

What to do when you're finished ?

Keep a copy of your work safe until your first days at college. Bring it with you for your first lesson in this subject.
