AQA GCSE History 9-1 Elizabethan England: Historic Environment Study 2019 - The Globe Theatre

AQA GCSE History 9-1 Elizabethan England: Historic Environment Study 2019 - The Globe Theatre

This guide is aimed at both teachers and students to help them study, revise and be prepared for the AQA Elizabeth I 1568-1603 Historic Environment question for 2019. I have included 5 possible examination questions and broken down the main details of the Globe into manageable chunks using what I call the 5 P’s. This guide, using many p words for simplification, also focuses on the main concepts of location, function, structure, design, people connected to it, the culture, values and fashions of the time and how the site links to important events of the period. I have also collaborated with Carmel Bones and teachers who attending the AQA course in London on 18th June this year to write this guide of whom I am extremely grateful for their inspiration. Carmel Bones is a leading specialist and writer for Elizabethan England and delivers AQA courses on Elizabethan England as well as for Hodder Education and has written for BBC Bitesize. The resource comes in PDF and word document if you wish to adapt and change. I would welcome any reviews on this resource which would be much appreciated. If you like the resource, please check out my AQA Elizabeth Revision Guide, c.1568-1603 which can be found here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-gcse-9-1-revision-guide-elizabethan-england-c-1568-1603-11806156 You can also download my free copy of the previous Historic Environment Question on Hardwick Hall for 2018 which can be found here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/aqa-gcse-9-1-revision-guide-historic-environment-hardwick-hall-2018-11810703

AQA GCSE History 9-1 Elizabethan England 1568-1603: Part 1 Elizabeth's court, government and early problems

This bundle is the first part in a series of lessons I have created for Elizabethan England. Having now delivered the course in its first year, I have tweaked the order of lessons I will now teach at the beginning. As well as teaching her court, government and parliament, I have included Elizabeth’s favourites and an introduction to the religious settlement (which are offered as free lessons), as I felt students were getting confused without these aspects of the course being referred to early on. The lessons contain different tasks to challenge the students and are differentiated. Furthermore each lesson focuses on how to answer a GCSE question set in the exam, notably in this unit the source, write an account and significance questions. The lessons are as follows: L1: An introduction to Elizabeth L2 Elizabethan Court and Government L3 Which problems did Elizabeth face in her first ten years? L4 Elizabeth and marriage L5 Who were Elizabeth’s key people? L6 The Elizabethan Religious Settlement L7 Threats from the Norfolk and Ridolfi Plots L8 The Essex Rebellion Each resource gives suggested teaching strategies and comes in PDF and Powerpoint formats. They can be amended and changed to suit.

AQA GCSE History 9-1 Elizabethan England 1568-1603: Revision Flashcards

AQA GCSE History 9-1 Elizabethan England 1568-1603: Revision Flashcards

I have produced these flashcards in another and lasting bid to get my Year 11’s revising and focusing on the forthcoming Mocks and GCSE exam. I use these 60 flashcards in revision sessions and intervention after school. They have proved a great success and it also gives the students something to take home and revise. I also email them to parents so they can keep track on heir child’s homework and revision. They need cutting down the middle and folding; the students then test themselves and each other, removing the ones they recognise and retaining those they don’t. The flashcards contain the main events, people and key words needed for the exam and cover the period 1558-1603. I have included a PDF file and a Powerpoint version if there is a wish to adapt and change.

AQA GCSE History 9-1 Elizabethan England 1568-1603: The Essex Rebellion

AQA GCSE History 9-1 Elizabethan England 1568-1603: The Essex Rebellion

The Essex rebellion was different to the other rebellions in the sense that despite posing a threat to Elizabeth, it was political in nature. Students learn about Essex’s life and the reasons for him turning on Elizabeth in his failed attempt to ‘protect’ her from Robert Cecil. Using differentiated materials and video evidence, they can either create a factfile on Essex or colour code information on his life focusing on different themes of importance. They then plan and write a significance GCSE question, using the suggested skills and tricks of answering a significance question as opposed to writing a narrative account of his life.

The Tudors: Did Henry VIII break with Rome for faith?

The Tudors: Did Henry VIII break with Rome for faith?

Did Henry break with Rome on account of his faith? This lesson explores this argument using a 2p coin which brings the lesson some relevance with today. Students complete reading a script, or can follow it and opt for the actors’ voices. They then have to complete a card sort prioritising Henry’s reasons for his decision to become Head of the Church. Now equipped with their new found knowledge, they write a letter to the Pope explaining in no uncertain terms their reasons for the break with Rome. They also have to justify their choices on a timeline. The resource includes differentiated materials and comes in PDF and Powerpoint formats if there is a wish to adapt and change.

AQA GCSE History 9-1 Elizabethan England 1568-1603: Which problems did Elizabeth face at the start?

AQA GCSE History 9-1 Elizabethan England 1568-1603: Which problems did Elizabeth face at the start?

This lesson attempts to clarify the problems Elizabeth faced as a ruler in her first ten years; from being a female to the succession, foreign policy, Ireland, taxation and religion. Two of the exam questions types are explored; the interpretation question and the write an account question. Students analyse her problems in the interpretation question before structuring these into the write an account question (with guidance in the lesson). Both plenaries focus on recall, evaluation and their newly acquired literacy skills. The resource gives suggested teaching strategies and comes in PDF and Powerpoint format.

The Tudors: Did Henry VIII break from Rome for love?

The Tudors: Did Henry VIII break from Rome for love?

Henry VIII is on the TV show ‘Take me out’ with Paddy McGuiness. He is looking for love and has some questions for some eligible ladies. The students of course have to interview the ladies first (as Paddy always does) and then feedback to the class. Henry, complete with speaking voice, discusses his options and the reasons for his choices. At the same time he explains the consequences of his actions as the students fill in a grid. Complete with the opening theme tune, this is a fun, engaging lesson but with the serious and challenging concept of the break with Rome at the fore. At the end of the lesson, students have to write a paragraph using key words to explaining the reasons for becoming Supreme Head of the Church. This lesson is fully resourced and has differentiated learning materials to suit all abilities with suggested teaching strategies to deliver the lesson. The resource comes in PDF and Powerpoint formats if there is a wish to adapt and change. I have also included suggested teaching strategies to deliver the lesson.

AQA A Level: NEA Component 3: Witchcraft c.1560-1660, Breadth Content - Lessons 1-10 bundle

AQA A Level: NEA Component 3: Witchcraft c.1560-1660, Breadth Content - Lessons 1-10 bundle

These resources are for A Level AQA students studying the NEA (Non-Examined Assessment) Component 3. The coursework that I have designed for my students centres on witchcraft in Europe from 1560-1660. The course looks at the different causes of witch-hunting across Europe, mainly in England, Scotland and Germany. The notes will build up over the course to which students will answer a coursework question focusing on the causes of witch-hunting between 1560 and 1660. This year my students completed the question: “Within the context of the years 1560-1660, to what extent were socio-economic factors the main reason for the growth in witch-hunting persecutions in Europe?” The first section of the course is the breadth study. Students will learn the wider historical context of witch-hunting and the beliefs in witches across Europe as a whole in the 16th and 17th centuries. The Hodder Education textbook by Alan Farmer called “Access to History: The Witchcraze of the 16th and 17th centuries” will be an essential textbook reference for these lessons.
