We all know how many hours teachers work everyday. My motivation for setting up this shop is to give you more time, by providing ready to use resources. You will find teaching resources in the form of activities, lesson plans, power points and assessments. You will also find display resources for you to simply print, laminate and put up on your classroom wall. I have been a teacher for 7 years, and a Learning Support Assistant prior to that. My background is in Museum Learning and Education.

I set this us as a police style investigation. I have a white body outline on the floor with a number of possible weapons that might have killed Harold (eBay is great for cheap props, or I raid my sons dressing up box).

Students should work in groups to complete this task. The evidence could be presented to them in a card folder (I use the brown suspension file folders that are completely open on 3 sides) with Harold Godwinson - Unsolved stuck on the front.

Students have 20 minutes to sift through the information and come up with their hypothesis explaining how Harold died. Once their 20 minutes is up, each group presents their findings to the class. Students should analyse the sources and take the provenance of the sources in to account when making their judgments.

By the end of the investigation, students should be able to provide a detailed explanation of how Harold died, using evidence from the file to support their points. Some should be able to also provide an evaluation of the sources they have used, discussing their reliability and utility. This could become a piece of formative/summative assessed work.

The Police file theory document is where students can create their theory around what happened.
The Evidence Publisher file is all the necessary pieces of evidence and the front covers for the investigation folders.
The Police File notes is a notes sheet, with a variety of questions on to prompt thought and discussion.
