King Charles II, Restoration England and the Glorious Revolution
Lesson that could follow on from Oliver Cromwell topic. The first lesson gives students an opportunity to consolidate the story of the demise of Cromwell and the unlikely rise of Charles II, with an activity on the subject of the Declaration of Breda. The second lesson gives focus to Restoration England and the changes brought in under King Charles II. (Students seem to particularly enjoy creating the invitation to his birthday party.) This then leads on to the Glorious Revolution, in which students create a simple comic strip of a simplified version of events during the GR, gathering the information from the Ppt which moves on and circulates without being clicked, which frustrates students intensely but does get them to focus on the story and help each other. - NOW with the 6 changes Charles II brought in!
