The English Civil War: Witches and Witchcraft

The English Civil War: Witches and Witchcraft

Why were the Stuarts and James I so obsessed with witches and witchcraft? How and why did the Pendle witch trials cause so much historical notoriety and infamy? How could you even recognise a witch and why should they be feared in the local community? These questions are answered in this lesson, which ultimately focuses on the Pendle Witch trials and the consequences for English society as a whole who soon lived in fear and terror for their lives. The resource comes in PDF and Powerpoint formats if there is a wish to adapt and change.

The English Civil War: Who was Oliver Cromwell?

The English Civil War: Who was Oliver Cromwell?

This lesson aims to explore the character of Oliver Cromwell. Did he set out to kill the King from the start and make himself a despot or did circumstances dictate that this was his only option? Moreover, with his puritanical ideas, did he make England and the Commonwealth a better place for it, or was it exclusive only to the minority? This will ultimately be down to the students’ own judgement as they plot his actions on a grid. Analysis of video evidence also helps to track his ideas and personality and gives the students ideas for writing his obituary and question why his burial place in Westminster Abbey bears the inscription 1658-1661. The resource comes in PDF and Powerpoint formats if there is a wish to adapt and change.

The English Civil War: How did the two sides fight?

The English Civil War: How did the two sides fight?

This lesson focuses on how the two sides fought in the Civil War. Students learn about the musketeers and pikemen, before analysing their role in the Battle of Marston Moor. The students take on the job of Oliver Cromwell and make key decisions to win the battle, gaining points as they go along. However they must be careful not to make mistakes and lose the battle with catastrophic consequences for Parliament and the New Model Army! There is also a chance to look at an alternative view of the Civil War. Was the decision taken to kill the King early on, or did Parliament arrive painstakingly at this decision over time. Students plot this on a graph before reaching their own conclusions. The resource comes in PDF and Powerpoint formats if there is a wish to adapt and change.

The English Civil War: The Causes of the English Civil War

This lesson explores the problems Charles brought upon himself to cause the English Civil War. Students are given information which they have to analyse and decide how and why there were opposing views from Parliament and the King on how to run the country. The use of contemporary accounts and propaganda posters will challenge the more able as well. Students justify who in their opinion is to blame for the Civil War and demonstrate their learning at the end of the lesson using factor and function symbols.

The English Civil War: The Gunpowder Plot of 1605

The English Civil War: The Gunpowder Plot of 1605

This lesson is split into two. The first half examines the men and their roles in the infamous plot to blow up the King in 1605. Students are introduced through talking heads to Guy Fawkes and King James. They also study sources from the time, including Robert Cecil’s account of the plot and analyse text trying to work out the difference between facts and fiction. Furthermore they evaluate the causes and consequences of the plot and its significance today. The second part of the lesson is to evaluate a number of sources to decide if the plotters were actually framed by Cecil and the government who allegedly knew about the plot all along and actively encouraged it. Students have to decide for themselves before reaching a judgement using key words to aid them. This is excellent groundwork for source analysis they will later tackle at GCSE. The resource comes in PDF and Powerpoint formats if there is a wish to adapt and change.
