Elizabethan England 1568-1603 AQA GCSE 9-1 Bundle Part 2
  • This bundle is the second part in a series of lessons I have created for AQA GCSE 9-1 Elizabethan England 1568-1603. These lessons focus on Elizabethan society from wealth, status and the latest fashions of the time, an analysis of the Elizabethan theatre and a study of the reasons for the defeat of the Spanish Armada , preparing students to answer the 2020 Historic Environment Question. The lessons then switch to exploration and trading links established with Britain culminating in the invasion fleet of the Spanish Armada and the significance of its ultimate demise and defeat.

  • The lessons contain different tasks to challenge the students and are differentiated. Furthermore each lesson focuses on how to answer a GCSE practice question set in the exam, from how convincing is the source, write an account and how significant. For further assessment materials, please visit the AQA website for specimen questions and answers.

  • The lessons are as follows:
    L1: Wealth Status and fashion
    L2: The Theatre with a case study of the Globe Theatre
    L3: How to answer the 2019 Historic Environment Question on the Globe Theatre, including GCSE practice questions and a model answer
