An excellent EAL friendly, well-resourced and developed History lesson which looks to introduce students to Medieval understanding of disease and possible treatments based on information from the time period. The main activity looks to reveal to students the difficultly in making a judgement on which types of diseases were treated with the cures at the time, based on down right ridiculous Medieval beliefs!
Great as a follow up to the Black Death or as a precursor lesson.
SMSC has been considered with reflection opportunities within the main activity, such as should doctors morally treat ALL patients regardless of social status?
This lesson can also be used for a possible observation/interview or where students do not have their own books, as stand alone work booklet for students is provided.
