The Tudors: Poverty and the Elizabethan Poor Law of 1601

This lesson focuses on the changing attitude towards the poor in Elizabethan England. Students first of all have to understand the reasons for poverty which have been caused b many factors such as local landowners as well as by the actions of Henry VIII in his break with Rome. One of their tasks is to write to the local landowner, using suggested key argument words, to express their sympathy for the poor which was in sort supply in the Elizabethan era. As well as source analysis, students learn the so called tricks of the trade for begging and how Tudor propaganda shaped these negative views of the poor. Students subsequently have to analyse the new Elizabethan Poor Law and assess its significance and impact on society as a whole The final task is to talk like an historian and answer the quiz picking up points for the harder questions The resource comes in PDF and PowerPoint formats if there is a wish to adapt and change.

The Tudors: How important was the reign of Edward VI?

The Tudors: How important was the reign of Edward VI?

This lesson questions the importance of Edward VI and his priorities when he became King. Recent research has claimed Edward was not a sickly boy at all and therefore this is not the emphasis of the lesson. Instead students have to think about the importance of religion and the changes he made, even to the extent of altering the succession. The lesson starts with a play your cards right game, the cards turning and the dates revealed as students are tested on their chronological understanding. In true world cup fashion, they have to narrow down his fixtures culminating in a final and winning priority. This lesson includes challenges using numbers, a true or false quiz, source work as well as video evidence to give the students a thorough knowledge of his six year reign.

The Tudors: Did Henry VIII break with Rome for money?

The Tudors: Did Henry VIII break with Rome for money?

This lesson sets out to question whether the reason that Henry broke from Rome all along was due to money. His expensive tastes, his wives, his need to build up his navy and coastal defences and to show Europe his prowess all took a toll on his bank balance. The monasteries with their wealth proved all too easy pickings for his Chancellor Thomas Cromwell in his Valour Ecclesiasticus. The lesson therefore builds up a picture of his need for money. Then students through some investigation will shockingly find many ‘abuses’ in the monasteries giving Henry the excuse to close them down and take their money for himself. Students then using their knowledge from previous lessons decide if he broke from Rome for love, faith or money. The resource comes in PDF and Powerpoint formats if there is a wish to adapt and change. I have also included suggested teaching strategies and differentiated materials to deliver the lesson.
