GCSE History Edexcel: Medicine - Surgeons, Apothecaries, Physicians, Wise Women (Lesson 6)

This lesson takes a look at the people who were available to treat the sick in Medieval Britain. The main task gets the students to ‘interview’ each form of treatment and rate aspects such as ‘availability’ and ‘cost’ before the student evaluates the more effective treatment available at that time.

Every lesson in this topic includes: Clear learning aims and achievements, a recap task, a starter activity, background information, a variety of tasks to pick from to suite your students, extension and challenge tasks, exam questions, a learning review (plenary) and finally a fact sheet which can be used as a stand alone resource for the lesson or as part of revision/student catch up.
