Pope Urban II's Council of Clermont Speech - Roleplay Activity

Pope Urban II's Council of Clermont Speech - Roleplay Activity

This activity is designed in accordance with the Australian Curriculum’s Year 8 Medieval Europe depth study. This activity is designed to give students insight into how influential the Catholic Church was during the Medieval period. This activity/resource is designed to be used after students are introduced to the Crusades (generally toward the end of the unit). Students begin by designing their own Pope hat (NOTE: print this with A3 paper) in small groups. They then elect one person from their group to role play as Pope Urban II. The class takes turns reading/listening to the various Pope’s speeches. The class then votes on which speech would most likely encourage them to join the First Crusade. Finally, students work individually to complete an accompanying questionnaire. This resource works best in energetic classrooms with students who enjoy role-play activity. The teacher is encouraged to take opportunities throughout the activity to impart students with new knowledge. For example, if a group elects a female student to read as the Pope, the teacher can take the opportunity to highlight the Catholic Church’s views on female clergy. The teacher is also responsible for ensuring students understand the underlying message contained within the Council of Clermont speech. While this resource has been designed for use in Australian schools, it can be used appropriately in any Medieval history topic. ACARA historical knowledge and understanding alignment: • Dominance of the Catholic Church and the role of significant individuals such as Charlemagne (ACDSEH052). • Significant developments and/or cultural achievements, such as changing relations between Islam and the West (including the Crusades), architecture, medieval manuscripts and music (ACDSEH050). ACARA historical skills alignment: • Identify the origin and purpose of primary and secondary sources (ACHHS152). ACARA General Capability alignment: • Critical and creative thinking. • Intercultural Understanding.

Edexcel Crusades AS/2 Revision Notes

Edexcel Crusades AS/2 Revision Notes

Includes a set of revision notes for each area of the specification. These notes are used in conjunction with my full revision guide. In contrast to the full guide, they follow a more analytical structure which matches previous exam questions. The notes can be used separately or put together into one booklet. I integrated previous exam questions and mark schemes which had been sorted by topic rather than by date set. Students used the full guide and revision notes to prepare essay plans on each unit in preparation for the exam.

Al Biruni - A sample chapter from 'Standing on the Shoulders of Giants'

Al Biruni - A sample chapter from 'Standing on the Shoulders of Giants'

This is a sample chapter from the forthcoming book, ‘Standing on the Shoulders of Giants’ by Tom Burkard and Colin McKenzie. Al Biruni is recognised as one of the greatest scientists of Islam. He was one of the first to recognise the importance of peer review, and his studies straddled the fields of philosophy, maths, astronomy and Earth science. It is aimed at higher ability students, and is an excellent resource for revision, homework or ‘flipped learning’. Further chapters are also being made available for review and evaluation. This chapter tells the story of Al Biruni and details his work on: The Decimal System Gravity Astronomy Geology Density Mineral Hardness Heat and Light Each chapter of Standing on the Shoulders of Giants gives a brief biography of a great physicist and is linked to an explanation of their discoveries that is relevant to the school curriculum. I have used this chapter for revision, homework and as a ‘flipped learning’ activity, where students are encouraged to independently learn the basics of a topic before it is taught in class. Our chapters are also very effective for use in ‘quiet reading’ sessions. The literacy level here is ‘higher’ and we have found this content to be very engaging as extension work for higher ability students.

Why did Medieval people go on the Crusades? Interactive PowerPoint Adventure

Why did Medieval people go on the Crusades? Interactive PowerPoint Adventure

If you’re looking for a fun and interactive way for your students to learn about the crusades this PowerPoint-based lesson could be for you. It’s based on the idea of ‘choose your own adventure’ games. Students time travel back to Medieval England and find out the reasons why people went on the crusades to Jerusalem. Students have to navigate their way through the presentation making decisions on who they ‘speak’ to and what they read in order to answer the questions on the question sheet. The students then can use their discoveries to answer the ‘mini-essay’ question: Why did people go on Crusade in the Middle Ages? CONTAINS: INTERACTIVE POWERPOINT QUESTION SHEETS MODEL ANSWER SHEETS I have used this with my classes every year and they enjoy it a lot. It’s just a different way to learn the topic or to refresh their memories for a test. If you have access to a computer suite it works very well as an individual or pair lesson but it easily be used in a teacher led lesson with the whole class. I have done this both ways and it has been successful. With older years (Year 7) it would work well as a supplement to a wider unit on the crusades. I hope you like it! If you are interested you might like to check out some of my other ‘Middle Ages’ history lessons in my store. Thanks for looking!
