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.
It's good to leave some feedback.
