The English Civil War: Who was Oliver Cromwell?

The English Civil War: Who was Oliver Cromwell?

This lesson aims to explore the character of Oliver Cromwell. Did he set out to kill the King from the start and make himself a despot or did circumstances dictate that this was his only option? Moreover, with his puritanical ideas, did he make England and the Commonwealth a better place for it, or was it exclusive only to the minority? This will ultimately be down to the students’ own judgement as they plot his actions on a grid. Analysis of video evidence also helps to track his ideas and personality and gives the students ideas for writing his obituary and question why his burial place in Westminster Abbey bears the inscription 1658-1661. The resource comes in PDF and Powerpoint formats if there is a wish to adapt and change.

Paired Texts - Australasia - Literal, Inference, Meaning and Summary questions

Paired Texts - Australasia - Literal, Inference, Meaning and Summary questions

This guided reading resource includes a pair of texts about Australasia with four comprehension skills sheets to complete, providing reading passages and questions that are challenging and engaging. Using the ‘LIMS’ approach, students work through Literal, Inference, Meaning and Summary questions to ensure that in the course of a week, they have practised skills in reading right across the Common Core. Text is differentiated and an answer scheme is provided. Suggested itinerary: Day 1 (30 mins) – Read both texts as a class. Highlight key parts. Discuss together. What have we learned? What do we want know more about? It is worth asking the students to write down any questions they have about the texts and putting them on display. Day 2 (30 mins) – Literal sheet Day 3 (30 mins) – Inference sheet (or meaning sheet if you prefer) Day 4 (30 mins) – Meaning sheet (or inference sheet if you prefer) Day 5 (45 mins) – Summary sheet and looking back at questions from the start of the week. This is the second in a series of Paired text resources looking at the seven continents of the world. Keep an eye on my store. Differentiation: All questions are the same, which should make marking easier! However, the texts differ, with asterisks in the bottom right corner indicating the reading level.

The English Civil War: How did the two sides fight?

The English Civil War: How did the two sides fight?

This lesson focuses on how the two sides fought in the Civil War. Students learn about the musketeers and pikemen, before analysing their role in the Battle of Marston Moor. The students take on the job of Oliver Cromwell and make key decisions to win the battle, gaining points as they go along. However they must be careful not to make mistakes and lose the battle with catastrophic consequences for Parliament and the New Model Army! There is also a chance to look at an alternative view of the Civil War. Was the decision taken to kill the King early on, or did Parliament arrive painstakingly at this decision over time. Students plot this on a graph before reaching their own conclusions. 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.
