Peasants revolt
This lesson examines the reasons why peasants rebelled in 1381 looking at long and short term factors. The lesson includes a number of opportunities to develop literacy and thinking skills. There is a brief literacy settler task followed by two further literacy tasks which secure pupils understanding of key vocabulary to be used in the lesson. This is followed with some Q&A discussion about money values at the time of the revolt then by a card sort task where pupils take on board the role of peasants and gauge on the thinking continuum how they would think/feel with law/tax that was introduced. The lesson concludes with pupils writing their top reason down on a plenary pass.
