The Cannon - Change in Warfare

The Cannon - Change in Warfare

A whole lesson as part of a KS3 Change in Warfare unit. The lesson is completely ready to go. Interactive and engaging. Discussion of a source as a starter. Brief contextual overview Group work to become experts on 1 of 3 case studies of early cannon use. (I have designed the task to produce a news report but could be altered to be an ask the expert task very easily. Information sheets are built into the powerpoint.) Students give their news reports whilst the class collect information about each in a table. Assessment comes in the form of a PEEL paragraph with useful sentence starters. Hope you enjoy :)

King James I, 1603 - 1625

King James I, 1603 - 1625

These outstanding resources look at key issues during the controversial Reign of James I. They begin by looking at the problems that he faced during his reign and the impact of the break with Rome and include his relations with Parliament, The Divine Rights of Kings, Money, taxation and religious problems. The issue of the religious problems facing James I is explored via both the Gunpowder Plot and The Pilgrim Fathers. Whilst interconnected with both these problems is popular beliefs and superstitions which is explored through my resources on Witchcraft. The overarching theme to all these resources is their link to not just the consequences of the break with Rome but ultimately the causes of the English Civil War. Please click on each resource to find out more.
