- This is the seventh lesson I have made for the AQA GCSE 9-1 Britain: Health and the People, c1000 to present course. The aim of this lesson is threefold; to understand the beliefs and treatments of the Black Death, to recognise why these had a detrimental affect on medicine and to understand the similarities between the Black Death and the later Plague of the 17th Century.
- There are numerous learning tasks to complete, from tabling the symptoms of the disease, using sources to map out the beliefs and treatments at the time, a thinking quilt, completing a find and fix activity as well as plotting similarities on a skeleton hand and tackling two GCSE practice questions.
- The resource is differentiated and gives suggested teaching strategies. It comes in PDF and Powerpoint format which can be amended and changed to suit.
