These resources are for A Level AQA students studying the NEA (Non-Examined Assessment) Component 3. The coursework that I have designed for my students centres on witchcraft in Europe from 1560-1660. The course looks at the different causes of witch-hunting across Europe, mainly in England, Scotland and Germany. The notes will build up over the course to which students will answer a coursework question focusing on the causes of witch-hunting between 1560 and 1660. This year my students completed the question:
“Within the context of the years 1560-1660, to what extent were socio-economic factors the main reason for the growth in witch-hunting persecutions in Europe?”
The first section of the course is the breadth study. Students will learn the wider historical context of witch-hunting and the beliefs in witches across Europe as a whole in the 16th and 17th centuries.
The Hodder Education textbook by Alan Farmer called “Access to History: The Witchcraze of the 16th and 17th centuries” will be an essential textbook reference for these lessons.
It's good to leave some feedback.

Some very useful material in these lessons and very neatly presented. <br /> Can I ask, why is the essay /25 marks on the front of the student booklet?
Thank you so much for your review. The reason for the essay being 25 marks was to try and emulate the section B essays that are worth 25 marks on the AQA exams. Hope that helps
Great work - based on the exellent work by Brian P Levack. Highly recommend.
Thank you so much for your review!
Thanks for these resources. This is my first time teaching the NEA and these resources will be of great help! <br /> <br /> Can I just ask, what documentary do you refer to in the first lesson? <br /> <br /> Many Thanks!
Thank you so much for your positive review. The documentary was from YouTube. However, after searching for quite a while it seems to have been deleted off of there. If you send me your email address I can try and send it over to you as an MP4 copy that I have on my hard drive.
Brilliant resources as always! Really helpful for this part of the course!
Excellent resources however the handout that is referred to in the ppts is not included. Therefore students cannot complete the tasks. Please could you send this hand out to me. With the handout this would be a 5 star rating. Thank you.
I have now included the booklet that goes with all of the PPTs. Apologies that this was not attached before. If you have any problems please let me know and I will be happy to email it directly to you.
