1066 Claimants to the English Throne

(0)
This resource asks KS 3 students to use a number of primary and secondary sources to assess each of the 4 candidates claim to the English throne in 1066. The sources are used for students to answer questions which will enable them to identify reasons why each person claimed he should be the next king of England on the death of Edward the Confessor. The idea is for the resources to be posted around the classroom and for students to move around individually or in pairs answering questions on each resource. (This could also be undertaken in groups with each group given copies of the resources and sharing answers.) A PowerPoint then summarises the answers the students should extract from each resource. The PowerPoint then looks at what the English people wanted in a king and asks students to decide how each claimant fitted into these perceptions. Finally both activities can be brought together to enable students to produce a written account: Who should be the next king of England?
