Oliver Cromwell - News report and assessment
Lesson that could follow trial and execution of King Charles I. Students are given a straight forward introduction to your main man Cromwell, they then work in groups to produce a drama (with their own scripts) of a breaking news story about Oliver Cromwell's actions. Students will need time to read the information they have been given, decide on roles, write scripts and rehearse. Students then watch eachother's reports and fill in an observer form. This could lead to an assessed piece of writing, debating on whether Cromwell was a hero or a villain when he ruled England.
