The Tudors: Elizabeth I's portraits and image

The Tudors: Elizabeth I's portraits and image

The aim of this lesson to find out about the hidden messages in Elizabeth I’s portrait paintings. Students learn about how Elizabeth manipulated her portraits and added symbols, each of which had a hidden meaning. The introduction to the lesson looks at anachronisms and modern day symbols put into portraits to get the students thinking how pictures should not always be seen and taken at face value. Students are then given information about each of her paintings and have to analyse and evaluate their meanings and various symbolic codes. The lesson is in PDF and Powerpoint format which allows you to adapt and change if required.

AQA GCSE 9-1 History Revision Guide: Germany 1890-1945

AQA GCSE 9-1 History Revision Guide: Germany 1890-1945

This is a revision guide tailored to the new AQA Germany 1890-1945 specification for GCSE. I have again been inspired to write this not due to a lack of revision guides for Germany out there (as there are plenty and of good quality), but because I needed to tailor it to suit the new GCSE specification complete with the types of questions and the skills on how to answer them for my students. Therefore this revision guide includes practice questions throughout on the 6 main questions and gives examples of model answers. The information is also broken down into an easy to use format to aid the students in their revision programme. I have also included some useful mnemonics for specific areas of study which have really helped in past GCSEs. This Guide has been designed to be engaging, detailed and easy to follow and can be edited and changed to suit with both PDF and Word files included. Any reviews on this resource would be much appreciated. Please email me for a free copy of my AQA Germany revision summary guide worth £4 if you do.

AQA GCSE 9-1 History Conflict and Tension 1918-39: Revision Flashcards

I have produced these flashcards in another bid to get my Year 11’s revising and focusing on the forthcoming GCSE exam. I use these 78 flashcards (13 slides) in revision sessions and intervention after school. They have proved a great success and it also gives the students something to take home and revise. I also email them to parents so they can keep track on their child’s homework and revision. I have also created a One Drive account where they can also be accessed at home. They need cutting down the middle and folding; the students then test themselves and each other, removing the ones they recognise and retaining those they don’t. The flashcards contain the main events, people and key words (which they really struggle with) needed for the exam.

The Tudors: Poverty and the Elizabethan Poor Law of 1601

The Tudors: Poverty and the Elizabethan Poor Law of 1601

The aims of this lesson are to explain the ideas behind the Elizabethan Poor Law and to assess its impact on Elizabethan society and beyond. This lesson focuses on the changing attitude towards the poor in Elizabethan England. Students first of all have to understand the reasons for poverty which have been caused by many factors such as local landowners as well as by the actions of Henry VIII in his break with Rome. One of their tasks is to write to the local landowner, using suggested key argument words, to express their sympathy for the poor which was in sort supply in the Elizabethan era. As well as source analysis, students learn the so called tricks of the trade for begging and how Tudor propaganda shaped these negative views of the poor. Students subsequently have to analyse the new Elizabethan Poor Law and assess its significance and impact upon society as a whole. The final task is to talk like an historian and answer the quiz picking up points for the harder questions. The resource comes in PDF and PowerPoint formats if there is a wish to adapt and change. I have also included suggested teaching strategies and differentiated resources to deliver the lesson.

The Tudors: How important was the reign of Edward VI?

The Tudors: How important was the reign of Edward VI?

This lesson questions the importance of Edward VI and his priorities when he became King. Recent research has claimed Edward was not a sickly boy at all and therefore this is not the emphasis of the lesson. Instead students have to think about the importance of religion and the changes he made, even to the extent of altering the succession. The lesson starts with a play your cards right game, the cards turning and the dates revealed as students are tested on their chronological understanding. In true world cup fashion, they have to narrow down his fixtures culminating in a final and winning priority. This lesson includes challenges using numbers, a true or false quiz, source work as well as video evidence to give the students a thorough knowledge of his six year reign.

AQA GCSE 9-1 History Elizabethan England 1568-1603 Part 1: Elizabeth's court, government and early problems

This bundle is the first part in a series of lessons I have created for Elizabethan England. Having now delivered the course in its first year, I have tweaked the order of lessons I will now teach at the beginning. As well as teaching her court, government and parliament, I have included Elizabeth’s favourites and an introduction to the religious settlement (which are offered as free lessons), as I felt students were getting confused without these aspects of the course being referred to early on. The lessons contain different tasks to challenge the students and are differentiated. Furthermore each lesson focuses on how to answer a GCSE practuce question set in the exam, notably in this unit the source, write an account and significance questions. The lessons are as follows: L1: An introduction to Elizabeth L2 Elizabethan Court and Government L3 Which problems did Elizabeth face in her first ten years? L4 Elizabeth and marriage L5 Who were Elizabeth’s key people? L6 The Elizabethan Religious Settlement L7 Threats from the Norfolk and Ridolfi Plots L8 The Essex Rebellion Each resource gives suggested teaching strategies and comes in PDF and Powerpoint formats.

AQA GCSE 9-1 History Elizabethan England 1568-1603: Catholic threats to Elizabeth at home and abroad

AQA GCSE 9-1 History Elizabethan England 1568-1603: Catholic threats to Elizabeth at home and abroad

The decision to be a Protestant country not surprisingly caused Elizabeth many problems from Catholics at home and abroad. The lesson therefore is in two parts. The first section deals with the Catholic threats at home, mostly from rebellions surrounding Mary Queen of Scots. Students plot the rebellions on a graph deciding how significant they were before being posed some challenging questions. T The second part of the lesson focuses on the threats posed by Allen and Campion and the Jesuits. After analysing the evidence they decide on the most important ingredients for their threat to Elizabeth (also focusing on short and long term problems) and place them on shelves (prioritising the most important) ready to go into a cauldron. The finale involves deciding how Elizabeth reacted to these threats and planning and completing a GCSE ‘write an account’ question.

AQA GCSE 9-1 History Elizabethan England 1568-1603: The Essex Rebellion

AQA GCSE 9-1 History Elizabethan England 1568-1603: The Essex Rebellion

The Essex rebellion was different to the other rebellions in the sense that despite posing a threat to Elizabeth, it was political in nature. Students learn about Essex’s life and the reasons for him turning on Elizabeth in his failed attempt to ‘protect’ her from Robert Cecil. Using differentiated materials and video evidence, they can either create a factfile on Essex or colour code information on his life focusing on different themes of importance. They then plan and write a significance GCSE question, using the suggested skills and tricks of answering a significance question as opposed to writing a narrative account of his life.

The Tudors: Did Henry VIII break with Rome for money?

The Tudors: Did Henry VIII break with Rome for money?

This lesson sets out to question whether the reason that Henry broke from Rome all along was due to money. His expensive tastes, his wives, his need to build up his navy and coastal defences and to show Europe his prowess all took a toll on his bank balance. The monasteries with their wealth proved all too easy pickings for his Chancellor Thomas Cromwell in his Valour Ecclesiasticus. The lesson therefore builds up a picture of his need for money. Then students through some investigation will shockingly find many ‘abuses’ in the monasteries giving Henry the excuse to close them down and take their money for himself. Students then using their knowledge from previous lessons decide if he broke from Rome for love, faith or money. The resource comes in PDF and Powerpoint formats if there is a wish to adapt and change. I have also included suggested teaching strategies and differentiated materials to deliver the lesson.

AQA GCSE 9-1 History Elizabethan England 1568-1603: An introduction to Elizabeth I

This lesson is an introduction to the reign of Queen Elizabeth and starts by finding out what the students know already using a true or false quiz, source material, video evidence and portraits of Elizabeth. The emphasis is also on the precarious nature of her early life which has a major impact on how she rules when she becomes Queen. The second part of the lesson uses differentiated resources and requires the students to plot, explain and prioritise her early problems on a tree (using the trunk, branches and leaves). The third part focuses on a typical GCSE question on the usefulness of a source giving tips and notes on how to answer this 12 mark question. The lesson also gives a brief introduction to the course and includes a tracking sheet which the students stick in their books detailing the assessment objectives of the course and the four main question types.

This lesson attempts to clarify the problems Elizabeth faced as a ruler in her first ten years; from being a female to the succession, foreign policy, Ireland, taxation and religion. Two of the exam questions types are explored; the interpretation question and the write an account question.

AQA GCSE 9-1 History Revision Guide: Elizabethan England, c.1568-1603

AQA GCSE 9-1 History Revision Guide: Elizabethan England, c.1568-1603

Having attended an AQA History Training Course on Elizabethan England, I decided that I needed to produce this 35 page Revision Guide for my students and include what I learnt. Within the Guide, there is a particular emphasis on how to answer the four main questions. At the start, it gives tips on how the students can access the questions and also gives advice on how to put this into practice with model answers given from the exam board. There are also four pages in the Guide dedicated to the Environmental study, Hardwick Hall with a focus on second order concepts. I also sought confirmation from the AQA course leader and Elizabethan expert, Carmel Bones that this section was correct and equipped the students to answer 16 mark question correctly.
