HISTORY MYSTERY: Why did the Great Fire of London Spread so far and so fast?

HISTORY MYSTERY: Why did the Great Fire of London Spread so far and so fast?

This lesson asks the big question ‘why did the Great Fire of London Spread so far and so fast in 1666?’. Your students have to evaluate the evidence available to decide what they think was the biggest contributing factor. Students have to infer and reach a reasoned judgement based on the evidence at hand. This includes primary sources and secondary reports. The class works in pairs or groups to decide why the Great Fire of London was able to spread so far in such a short space of time. They assess the evidence to decide whether the main reason was: -Human mistakes, -Weather conditions -Housing -Firefighting equipment. The evidence is not given to them all at once, instead the teacher drip feeds it throughout the lesson. This is in a bid to challenge preconceived ideas and see if pupils will change their minds when faced with new data or sources. The lesson also works well as a station activity with the children moving around the room to gather information. The last task is to write an extended piece (like a DBQ) explaining what the different factors were and what they believe was the biggest contributing factor to the fire spreading in this way. The lesson fits with the common core requirement for students to analyse, evaluate and consider causation. It is designed for the UK National Curriculum and I have kept in the level descriptors as these may help you with grading your students as they are skill descriptors: ie: identify, then describe then explain then evaluate at the top end of ability. But if not they can be easily deleted from the slides. The zip file contains: fully animated powerpoint Clues from the scene worksheet Answer worksheet 9 minute clip from Charles II: Power and the Passion Full lesson plan description My classes have had great fun with this lesson. It can stand alone or be used a a project, for example on Stuart housing. I hope you find this useful and enjoyable.

Black Death vs Great Plague of London

Black Death vs Great Plague of London

This lesson was planned for Y8 students sitting the Common Entrance exam. It was designed to revise BOTH the Black Death and Great Plague of London. It asks students to pitch which of the plagues should be featured in an empty gallery in the Museum of London. This lesson works really well as students think about wider consequences which could also lead to discussion and research into increased freedoms after the Black Death etc. This lesson could be easily adapted to suit GCSE teaching of the History of Medicine. My students supplements the information sheet with relevant textbooks in my room. In the next lesson students used a past paper question to demonstrate their knowledge. Enjoy!

The activity aims to get them to draw a table to help them analyse the information before having a go at writing an extended answer or a newspaper report from either a Catholic or Protestant stand point on what happened. In order to help students analyse the sources I have included a range of graphic organisers, that you can select from. which can be printed off alongside the historical sources. The aims and objectives are: Theme: What were the consequences of the break with Rome? •Know: What happened during the Gunpowder Plot? •Understand: Why did the Catholics want to murder the King and Parliament? •Evaluate: How far does the historical evidence prove that Guy Fawkes was innocent or guilty?
