How did enslaved people fight back? 16-page lesson pack

How did enslaved people fight back? 16-page lesson pack

In this lesson students begin with a what-would-you-do style starter activity in which they scores points according to their reactions to losing their freedoms. This stimulates discussion over how enslaved people might react and leads into the main activity which is a card sort. Students divide up the very precise 13 cards into examples of passive and active resistance and try to explain how they prioritised them. So for example was Nat Turner’s revolt much more high risk than say kicking a cow? Students then go on to use this card sort as an effective scaffold for a piece of extended written work before finishing the lesson off with a plenary about cultural appropriation (in particular whether it is right for a slave-trading nation like Britain to use a slave spiritual ‘Amazing Grace’ in its sporting fixtures). My students always find this a really powerful life lesson and one which hones their historical skills fantastically well. I hope you find it useful with your students too. Click on the short video link to get a feel for a part of this lesson in action.

The English Civil War: Witches and Witchcraft

The English Civil War: Witches and Witchcraft

Why were the Stuarts and James I so obsessed with witches and witchcraft? How and why did the Pendle witch trials cause so much historical notoriety and infamy? How could you even recognise a witch and why should they be feared in the local community? These questions are answered in this lesson, which ultimately focuses on the Pendle Witch trials and the consequences for English society as a whole who soon lived in fear and terror for their lives. The resource comes in PDF and Powerpoint formats if there is a wish to adapt and change.

However, the main instructions are as follows (also included on sheet): This is to be played in groups. Each student has a counter. They roll a dice and move that number of places. They then have to tell or explain to the others in their group about that topic. If they manage 15 seconds, they get 1 points. If they manage 25 seconds, they get 2 points. If they get 35 or more seconds, they get 3 points. Please use a great revision resource for group work. Please also leave any feedback for future revision resources and how to improve them.
