Events of the English Civil War Living Graph

Events of the English Civil War Living Graph

In this activity, students have to evaluate the impact of certain events during the English Civil War on the two sides. Beginning with the Roundheads they must decide how much each event impacted their fortune in war. Print the graph on A3 size paper and cut out the events cards with one set per pair. Once the students have done that for the Roundheads they must move the cards around the graph to show how the same events impacted the Cavaliers. As an extension I ask my students to think outside the box. For example how would these events impact on a peasant woman that worked for a Monarchist? The aim to get our young people thinking about the effect the same events can happen on different people depending on their background and personal experience. It can also be used to discuss ‘key turning point’ and ‘to what extent…’ questions Then I ask them to write up their findings in an extended answer using the P.E.E.L. structure.

(German Culture) BUNDLE- German Air Pollution Articles and Guides (5 Articles)

This is a set of 5 articles written in English about Germany and it’s impending air pollution situation I use this resource as a class background knowledge builder before starting our chapter on the environment. I have the whole class read the main article regarding air pollution in Germany. The guide for this article is 2 pages and has students answer questions regarding the written text. They need to go online to visit the article so they can view the audio/visual supplemental items listed within the online article. The 4 additional articles are listed within the main article for additional topic support. I divide my class up into groups and have each group read a supporting article and do the 1 page guide. Then we share out our findings together. The entire project would last about 60 minutes. These articles are suited for high school level students. FILES IN WORD FORMAT. The articles are hyperlinked within the titles for quick access and also included as PDF for easy printing.
