Who should be King 1066?

Who should be King 1066?

Lesson to pair with who should be king homework. Who should be king homework - pupils have one each (3 claimants covered, Hardrada, Godwinson and William the Conqueror) Each profile includes: Why the individual wants to be king, problems with their plans, who they are and extension activity (an interesting fact about the individual). Support and differentiation: on the back of the worksheet it tells pupils who they are, their claim (strengths and weaknesses) and there are some websites for each individual at the bottom of the page. Pupils then use their research collaboratively to compare each other claimants and write a persuasive speech as to whom they think is the best choice.
