This fun and engaging market place activity is just the thing you need energise your students and develop their higher order thinking skills on the long term causes of the English Civil War. This lesson has been crafted by experienced teachers and robustly field tested in the classroom. It is suitable for the full range of ability and to add a bit of additional differentiation, appropriate slides have been ‘Ragged’ and you can chose from a series of follow up activities to suit the ability of your students.
Once students have worked their way through one of the starters, the market place activity begins by looking at the challenges facing Charles I and setting the scene n 1640. Students can then review one of six information slides on the long term causes of the English Civil War. They can make notes in their exercise books or into the summary tables that I have included as templates to be photocopied back to back. Once the market place activity has been completed, your students they can use the information that they have downloaded and sumarised into their notes to complete a mind map activity. This can then be followed up by completing a priority task in the form of a thinking skills triangle and an extended written answer. Or if you prefer, your students can use the templates that have been included to write a speech for the MP John Pym, explaining why he was upset with Charles I in 1640. The choice is yours and this resource includes everything that you will need to look amazing.
