Power of monarchy from Charles II to George I

Power of monarchy from Charles II to George I

Was it worth killing the king? How did power and democracy change after the execution of Charles I? When? Was it worth it? How and why does the monarchy have less power today than in the 1600s? This lesson gives students the opportunity to chart changes in power, the economy and religion from 1660-1727 - with a key focus on Charles II, William and Mary and George I. This package includes a comprehensive lesson powerpoint including starter, tasks and plenary, plus information sheets with two different levels of detail and literacy challenge, to support differentiation. Students hare scaffolded to gather key information as well as to consider deeper questions, and make links to the present day as well as the deeper past. We have found this lesson an effective way to cover a range of key concepts in just one lesson - it helps us to bridge the gap between two units of work (power and democracy until the civil war and the industrial revolution).
