<b>LESSON OUTLINE</b><br />
• Students have to completed a quartered placemat about what characteristics make a good monarch.<br />
• Introduce the figure of Edward the Confessor. Explain to students that Edward had all the qualities of a good monarch, but that he also had a few major problems...<br />
• Students are to learn about four problems England faced as a result of Edward: they will have to make notes on whiteboards, and then explain in their exercise books.<br />
• Introduce the four claimants competing for the English throne.<br />
• Students will have to learn about these claimants by completing a worksheet using information cards on their desk. They will be thinking about why each should (and should not) be King of England, and then rating them in terms of how good a choice they would be.<br />
• Post-it note review whereby students write a brief explanation as to who they think would be the best choice as King of England. They stick these up on the board.<br />
• Students can now pair up to debate who would be the best choice, using a speaking frame, and thus developing their arguement skills.<br />
• Three worksheets for students to complete about the claimants to the throne. One for LA, MA and HA students, with the same outcome. Weaker students have keywords provided, more able students need to explain in further detail. <br />
• Teacher circulation during worksheet activity to check understanding. <br />
• Pick on pairs to perform their debate/discussion at end of lesson
I used 2 lessons for this. They worked in groups of four with 2 people on the script, 1 on the poster and 1 on the leaflet.\nThe circle is for the second lesson where groups perform. Each person has a partner in another group to assess. As a class we decide what we need to assess and record 1 thing per segment. They colour in as much of the segment as they think e.g. if the segment is 'loud clear voice' and their person is loud and clear they should colour in the whole segment, if they are mumbling they would only colour in a little bit. I then got them to set targets for their peer.
This lesson involves pupils working in groups to produce an election campaign for one of the claimants to the throne in 1066. (Before the Battle of Hastings lesson) The PowerPoint goes through the claimants to the throne in 1066 which allows students to work in groups for the election campaign task. <br />
The CV worksheet provides students with extra information to support with the group task. The election task work sheet gives clear instructions alongside extension tasks to enable students to complete high quality group work.
Here are all my resources when teaching OCR Paper 1 The Cold War - events - Vietnam War....took me ages! hope it helps at least one person!!
I have put them in chronological order and the worksheets go with the powerpoints provided.
please comment if you find them useful so i know if to add more!
