Restoration Knowledge Organiser_ GCSE OCR Modern World Spec

This is a Knowledge Organiser (KOs) which covers the reasons for the restoration in 1660. As KOs, this only cover the absolute basics, however in conjunction with lessons and learning homework, the idea is that students gain valuable specific knowledge that they can then incorporate into their written answers.

This KO could be used as a starter, recap, or as a learning homework that is then assessed in subsequent lessons.

Some homework ideas that could be used along side this KO could be…

1)Create 2 PEEL Paragraphs – 1 to show the restoration occurred because of the popularity of the monarchy and the 2nd to explain why the republic was weak.
2) Look, cover, write – The 5 reasons why the monarchy was restored.
3) Create a mnemonic to explain the Declaration of Breda
4) Create cue cards to show how the restoration settlement differed from the Grand Remonstrance.
5) Quiz on Socrative.

The second sheet is exam specific criteria to help students identify the key skills for the GCSE Modern World A - Personal Rule to Restoration depth study.
