Why was 1789 such a revolting year?
Lesson to introduce the French Revolution. Focusing first on Jacques-Louis David’s painting of the Tennis Court Oath. Then moving on to a source exercise. I enlarged the Jacques-Louis David picture to A3 and laminated so that the students could use board pens to match the numbers on the picture to the correct description. Cut up the sources so that students can work in groups and share information.
