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

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.

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.

Role of the Church in Medieval England

Role of the Church in Medieval England

Lesson that looks at the role and power of the church. It also focuses on key terminology, such as sins and their meaning. Students study a painting and how it reflects the importance and use of religion. Sins are described in second powerpoint and can be printed out and scattered around the room for students to locate and try to simplify, this is also great for literacy.

What were the causes of slavery? 7-page lesson pack

What were the causes of slavery? 7-page lesson pack

This is one of my most popular lesson activities. Students read detailed background knowledge before completing a hexagonal card sort to divide reasons up into belief systems, technology, geography and economics. Here students will make links between their factors to create a visual map which they can use for an extended piece of written analysis. I am especially proud of the level of precision and detail in the historical content here. The eighteen cards are broken down and color coordinated for differentiation purposes. I really hope you enjoy this activity and that your students get as much from it as mine do. Please watch the video for a quick feel of how this task works.
