James I & VI Profile - Who was the King?

James I & VI Profile - Who was the King?

Look for my Civil War Bundle. This is a lesson that makes use of freely available INFO sheets and asks students to extract relevant points from different sources and communicated their answers onto a PROFILE sheet. The ALTERNATIVE LESSON or extension lesson makes use of the different visual sources and poses the question on her he wanted people to see him. Wordsearch and Key Terms can be used for starters or home work assignments. There is a little bit of English bias here. I have tried my best to eliminate it. Personally, I feel he gets a bad rap and is comparable to most monarchs before him and elsewhere in Europe. LO: To select information & communicate it effectively.
