The English Civil War: The Causes of the Civil War

The English Civil War: The Causes of the Civil War

This lesson explores the problems Charles brought upon himself to cause the English Civil War. Students are given information which they have to analyse and decide how and why there were opposing views from Parliament and the King on how to run the country. The use of contemporary accounts and propaganda posters will challenge the more able as well. Students justify who in their opinion is to blame for the Civil War and demonstrate their learning at the end of the lesson using factor and function symbols. The resource comes in PDF and Powerpoint formats if there is a wish to adapt and change.

The English Civil War: The Gunpowder Plot of 1605

The English Civil War: The Gunpowder Plot of 1605

This lesson is split into two. The first half examines the men and their roles in the infamous plot to blow up the King in 1605. Students are introduced through talking heads to Guy Fawkes and King James. They also study sources from the time, including Robert Cecil’s account of the plot and analyse text trying to work out the difference between facts and fiction. Furthermore they evaluate the causes and consequences of the plot and its significance today. The second part of the lesson is to evaluate a number of sources to decide if the plotters were actually framed by Cecil and the government who allegedly knew about the plot all along and actively encouraged it. Students have to decide for themselves before reaching a judgement using key words to aid them. This is excellent groundwork for source analysis they will later tackle at GCSE. The resource comes in PDF and Powerpoint formats if there is a wish to adapt and change.
