KS3 Stuarts Assessment (made for SEN, differentiated by NC Levels)

KS3 Stuarts Assessment (made for SEN, differentiated by NC Levels)

This is an end of unit test on the Stuarts. It could be used as an assessment or as a research task - with students trying to find the answers, perhaps on PCs. They’d done the Tudors before and then covered the Stuarts by looking at: Monarchs Catholicism and Protestantism Puritans The Witch Frenzy Source analysis The English Civil War Oliver Cromwell Plague Great Fire of London The assessment is differentiated THREE times. The three sets of questions all include some source questions, some option questions, and some open/closed questions. The questions for each set demonstrate the skills needed for Level 3, 4 and 5 in the History NC. If students are lower ability, I start them with the first sheet ‘Aiming for Level 3’ - if they complete this they can move onto ‘Aiming for Level 4’. If they are more able they can start with the Level 4 sheet and then do 5, or start with the Level 5. If they finish Level 5 (which has more thought provoking questions so does take longer, I let them go back to the Levels 3 and 4 sheets to recap. Sometimes it works to start all on Level 3 and see how far they can go (builds confidence when they can see they are literally progressing). Please feel free to edit or move questions based on what you have covered, but there’s a fairly good mix in here.

The linked video clips make an excellent resource to accompany this lesson. This resource is suitable for the full ability range. If you are looking for something a little more challenging on this topic, then I have made a much more challenging card sort which contains both primary and secondary sources on Oliver Cromwell.

You will also be able to download a nine slide PowerPoint Presentation that includes aims, objectives, outcomes, two starters, information slides, video links and differentiated activities. This resource makes a great starter or plenary to completed in pairs or groups. It can be cut up the students and stuck into their books or placed into envelopes for use with several classes or even set as a piece of homework. Alternatively, your students could draw a table with the two headings ‘hero’ or ‘villain’ and write a summary of the arguments for and against Oliver Cromwell being a hero or a villain. The aims and objectives are: Theme: Why was the monarchy restored? Know: What sort of man was Oliver Cromwell? Understand: Why are historical events interpreted in different ways? Evaluate: How far does the evidence support Oliver Cromwell as a ‘hero’ or ‘villain’? WILF - What Am I Looking For? Identify and describe: Which sources support / disagree with Oliver Cromwell being a ‘hero’ or ‘villian’? Explain: Why do people disagree over Oliver Cromwell’s actions?
