I'm an experienced history teacher, educated at the University of Sussex, who has worked in two 'outstanding' inner city London schools. I am currently head of history at a large school in East London. I am particularly knowledgeable in both AQA spec B and Edexcel Spec B. I try to focus on lessons which are both knowledge and skills based and incorporate a wide variety of teaching and learning strategies; particularly independent learning.

This is an updated version of a previous copy of this lesson that I added a while back. This version has differentiated resources, extended writing support and improved challenges for the students.
This lesson is a medieval murder mystery which requires students to work independently and competitively. Students begin in groups, by recreating and deciphering an image of the murder of Becket. They are asked to work out aspects of the event through discussion and analysis.
They then go on to work through a selection of evidence in their groups in order to work out the mystery event in the painting they analysed at the beginning of the lesson.
They then go on to consider why this event is so significant and what the problems between church and state were in medieval England.
Finally students are given writing scaffold to help them explain their findings in a piece of extended writing.
This lesson also includes differentiated resources for lower abilities.
