This outstanding resource was designed for a lesson observation and comes with its own lesson plan. It is suitable for a range of learners and includes some great ideas and strategies to try out with your students. The information on the consequences of the Black Death for the market place activity have been beautifully presented and linked into the decline of feudalism, the peasants revolt and the Renaissance. The core question for students t investigate is 'how far was the Black Death a disaster for Medieval society?'

The resource includes a PowerPoint with aims, objectives, differentiated outcomes as well as two alternative innovative starters and plenaries. It then includes six information slides about how the symptoms and causes of the Black Death as well as an activity around the effectiveness of Medieval medicine at this time. The next six slides are designed to be either printed off on A3 or A4 to be used for the market place activity. They are grouped together so that each table would have two information sheets. The final slide includes an activity to help students structure an extended answer on: 'How far was the Black Death a disaster for Medieval society?' I have also included a card sort on this topic called 'The Black Death, before and after, which can be used as an alternative plenary.

The aims and objectives for this lesson are:

Theme: Medieval Society
Know: What were the consequences of the Black Death?
Understand: How did the Black Death change Medieval society?
Evaluate: How far was the Black Death a disaster for Medieval society?
Skills: Source Analysis, Cause, Consequence & Collaboration

WILF – What Am I Looking For?
Identify & describe: What were the effects of the Black Death?
Explain: How did the Black Death change Medieval society?
Analyse: How far was the Black Death a disaster for Medieval society?

As part of the plenary you could discuss what impact would a similar disease have on jobs, housing and society today in modern Britain. Its important to ask in this lesson, for whom was it a disaster and how much of a disaster. My students concluded, that it was a disaster for the feudal lords who began to lose control over their peasants.
