Was Guy Fawkes Framed?

Was Guy Fawkes Framed?

This much loved resource has now been updated to PowerPoint so that it is accessible for the full ability range through a change of multimedia and interactive content. If you wish to buy the worksheet version which was the number one download on school history, it can still be purchased via my TES shop separately or as a bundled item. The lesson comes in two sections. The first looks at the traditional story of the Gunpowder Pot as it has been taught to school children for hundreds of years. I have created a series of questions and activities aimed at foundation and core students that helps them to study an old Victorian school history book version. This is a great exercise to help students appreciate how history has been taught in the past. I have uploaded a copy of my my chronology card sort on the Gunpowder Plot, which can be used as a starter or consolidation exercise. I have also linked in the Nick Knowles version of the Gunpowder The next section looks a the revisionist version of the Gunpowder Plot and gives students a series of contemporary sources and secondary research by historians to help them decide whether Guy Fawkes was innocent or guilty. The activity aims to get them to draw a table to help them analyse the information before having a go at writing an extended answer or a newspaper report from either a Catholic or Protestant stand point on what happened. In order to help students analyse the sources I have included a range of graphic organisers, that you can select from. which can be printed off alongside the historical sources. The aims and objectives are: Theme: What were the consequences of the break with Rome? •Know: What happened during the Gunpowder Plot? •Understand: Why did the Catholics want to murder the King and Parliament? •Evaluate: How far does the historical evidence prove that Guy Fawkes was innocent or guilty? WILF - What Am I Looking For? •Identify & describe: What happened during the Gunpowder Plot? •Explain: Why would the Catholics want to murder the King and Parliament? •Analyse: How far does the historical evidence prove that Guy Fawkes was innocent or guilty? If you like this resource then why not check out my other resources on this topic in my TES shop, where many have been bundled together to provide you with further savings. You can also follow ‘The History Academy’ on Twitter, Google Plus, YouTube and Facebook for the latest updates or even to get in touch and chat about how you have used this resource or to ask questions. We aim to produce cheap and affordable resources for either the price of a good cup of coffee or a happy meal so that you can spend more time doing the things that you want. Kind Regards Roy

The Reign of James I 1603 - 1625

The Reign of James I 1603 - 1625

These outstanding resources look at key issues during the controversial Reign of James I. They begin bylooking at the problems that he faced during his reign and the impact of the break with Rome and include his relations with Parliament, The Divine Rights of Kings, Money, taxation and religious problems. The issue of the religious problems facing James I is explored via both the Gunpowder Plot and The Pilgrim Fathers. Whilst interconnected with both these problems is popular beliefs and superstitions which is explored through my resources on Witchcraft. The overarching theme to all these resources is their link to not just the consequences of the break with Rome but ultimately the causes of the English Civil War.

Fishing for connectives display

Fishing for connectives display

This colourful under-the-sea themed display includes 30 different connectives grouped by their uses: To put ideas in order. To add evidence. To add more information. To explain. To emphasise. To contrast. To conclude. As well as all of the connectives on different shaped fish, it also includes all signage including a ‘Gone fishing…for connectives’ sign. I use it with my KS3 students in order to encourage them to use more connectives in their written work and develop their answers. Edit - In the previews, it looks like the connectives are written across the fish but in reality all of the words are actually inside the fish templates so the display is much neater than the previews suggest!
