The French Revolution: The Reign of Terror.

The French Revolution: The Reign of Terror.

This lesson should lead on from recently studying the 'Declaration of the Rights of Man'. Hook starter: As pupils enter the room the presentation will display an autonomously moving spot light to reveal a picture clue about the lesson. Learning Intention and differentiated outcomes (SMSC). Starter: Pupils' receive crime cards to which then then decide individually upon the most fitting punishment this will link in later with the lesson when the guillotine and how it was used during the 'Terror' is explained. Pupils can compare justice and crimes fitting the appropriate punishments. Pupils will consolidate with a video regarding how the Revolution became extreme though the September Massacre as a case study. Pupils' then compete in groups to complete a literacy relay regarding the 'Terror' to increase their knowledge of the events which took place and the main forces involved. Peep sheet has been provided here for differentiation. Pupils then watch a BBC Bitesize video to consolidate before answering a structured 8 mark exam style question. If time I then ask my pupils to peer assess with WW / EBI. All videos links are provided along with instructions and advice in the description of the presentation. Many thanks
