Essex rebellion events
This is a resource for the new GCSE section on Elizabeth.
Students are to put the events of the Essex rebellion in order. They are to then answer the scaffolded questions at the bottom of the sheet.
More able students can be invited to consider turning points and the overall position of Elizabeth after the rebellion - was her position strengthened or weakened?
An exam Q can be set after the activity, or as a homework.
N.B. It will be very helpful to have studied the Earl of Essex's character, career and marriage potential before this lesson, so that students have a full picture.
