Poaching, vagabondage, smuggling and morality 1500-1700 Edexcel History GCSE 9-1

Poaching, vagabondage, smuggling and morality 1500-1700 Edexcel History GCSE 9-1

Students are expected to investigate the impact of social change on crime & punishment between 1500-1700 focusing on poaching, vagabondage, smuggling and morality [I left out witchcraft at this stage to be covered in depth later]. This lesson is designed to be used alongside the Pearson textbook. There are recaps throughout based upon historical sources, and once the investigation is complete students are expected to attempt a 12 mark 'explain why' question. A model answer and success criteria are provided to support the exam question.

Heresy & treason- why did crimes against the authority increase during the Tudor and Stuart periods?

Heresy & treason- why did crimes against the authority increase during the Tudor and Stuart periods?

Students consider the impact of religious change on crime & punishment in the Tudor and Stuart periods as part of the Edexcel GCSE (9-1) History Crime and Punishment in Britain specification. After watching introductory videos students use the Pearson textbook to investigate religious changes and changes made to law enforcement and punishments by each Tudor monarch and James I. They are then presented with a 12 mark 'Explain why' question.
