I did this lesson the day after a lesson on the Civil War. Name cards and scripts were given out to volunteers to act out the trial (we even moved the tables round to look like a court room).\n\nThen we went through each day of the trial and analysed the behaviors of the characters, and whether Charles was getting a fair trial.\n\nThe pupils then paired up, numbered 1 and 2, 1s gave a reason for execution, 2s gave a reason against. We chose the strongest argument and gave that person a point. We then had a result of which won - for or against.
