The changing role and status of women
A series of resources to support the teaching of the WJEC Specification B on ‘The changing role and status of women in Wales and England, 1900 to the present day’. The resource has thirteen units focusing on an overview of the main characteristics of change in each area together with a brief revision exercise. Students are given the opportunity to interact with a variety of sources, to discuss developments and to come to their own judgement on the key issues. The resources can be used for starter activities, whole class teaching, individual extension work and revision exercises.
