The Tudors This is the nineteenth in a series of lessons I have created on the Tudors. The aim of this lesson is for the students to understand the causes and prioritise the reasons for the failure of the Spanish Armada. As the students are posed with the question, ‘why did the Spanish eat rope?’, they make up an explosive cocktail to understand the main causes of the invasion. As the story unravels as to the failures of the Spanish invasion fleet, students have to analyse and prioritise which were the main reasons for English success, against Spanish superiority in numbers and firepower. The plenary requires students to evaluate the Blob bridge and explain which blob represents the best fit in this story, from an English sailor, the Spanish public right up to Queen Elizabeth and King Philip. The lesson is differentiated and includes video evidence as well as an interactive diagram plotting the route of the Armada. The lesson is enquiry based with a key question using a lightbulb posed at the start of the lesson and revisited to show the progress of learning. The resource includes suggested teaching strategies, retrieval practice, differentiated materials and comes in Powerpoint format if there is a wish to adapt and change.
These are 2 series of resources, one for Y12 and one for Year 13 to train students to deal with summaries. The Year 12 includes a Reading Assessment (version A and B) with 5 questions in each one: Reading comprehension with answers in Spanish Synonyms Summary T, F, NM Translations into Spanish After this assessment, we did a Summaries training session to get better at it. The Year 13 one includes a power point + students notes in which students practice changing from the I/we persons to the he/she/they persons. The aim of this lesson is to get better at manipulating the language.
