Emily Wilding Davison - A Suffragette Suicide? HISTORY MYSTERY!

(0)
The death of Emily Wilding Davison at The Derby in June 1913 was one of the key events of the Suffragette movement in the UK. When she ran in front of the King’s horse, Anmer did she intend to commit suicide or was she merely trying to break up the race in protest? This has interested historians for over one hundred years. This lesson asks whether her death was a suicide or a protest ‘gone wrong’. Your students must gather the evidence and evaluate it to ultimately come to a decision on what they think. They then use this to write an extended piece supported by the evidence available. The lesson contain: *13 slide animated PowerPoint presentation *A full lesson plan * A clue sheet * Evidence graphic organiser. This is great lesson for developing your students’ historical skills as well as improving their knowledge of women’s history and the campaign for the right to vote.

Events of the English Civil War Living Graph

(0)
In this activity, students have to evaluate the impact of certain events during the English Civil War on the two sides. Beginning with the Roundheads they must decide how much each event impacted their fortune in war. Print the graph on A3 size paper and cut out the events cards with one set per pair. Once the students have done that for the Roundheads they must move the cards around the graph to show how the same events impacted the Cavaliers. As an extension I ask my students to think outside the box. For example how would these events impact on a peasant woman that worked for a Monarchist? The aim to get our young people thinking about the effect the same events can happen on different people depending on their background and personal experience. It can also be used to discuss ‘key turning point’ and ‘to what extent…’ questions Then I ask them to write up their findings in an extended answer using the P.E.E.L. structure.

The Peasants' Revolt 1381 Full Middle Ages Lesson

The Peasants' Revolt 1381 Full Middle Ages Lesson

(0)
MIddle Ages - Power and the People What happened when the Peasants Revolted? This lesson was designed to be taught after a full unit on the Medieval Black Death and it’s consequences, but works just as well as a stand-alone lesson. It can be used as a history lesson or even part of a topic on citizenship and taxation. The Peasants’ Revolt 1381 saw the people of the South East of England rise up and attack London and the King’s advisors over unfair taxation (The Poll Tax). The lesson begins with the causes of the Peasants’ Revolt and students must link them together and ‘make the middle box happen’. This is a good thinking activity to help students to develop their reasoning and explaining skills in history. In the middle box is ‘The Peasants’ Revolt’. In the boxes on the outside are reasons why this happened. They could just draw a line from each cause to the middle box - this would be accurate but does not explain how some causes led to other causes. The children have to create a causation web linking the different reasons, in order. On the lines they have drawn they need to explain using ‘so’ or ‘because’ sentences. Students can use the same box as many times as they like for different causes. FOR EXAMPLE: King Richard II was only 10 years old when he came to the throne in 1377, so he had advisors that the people did not like. In 1377 these advisors brought in the Poll Tax and everyone over 15 had to pay the same amount. This made the peasants angry and led to the Peasants’ revolt. The students could also use the boxes differently and consider long term versus short term causes. They web can then be used as a structure to write a full paragraph on the causes of the Peasants’ Revolt. (A P.E.E.L. structure encourages explanation - see my store for a PEEL writing mat resource)
