TO FIX FORMATTING ISSUES PLEASE CHANGE FONT TO COMIC SANS SIZE 11 Lesson objective is to weigh up how revolutionary the age of revolutions really was. Created for a mixed ability year 8 class. Handout: provides a very brief overview of changes during the Scientific Revolution, English Civil War, Cromwell’s England, Restoration and Glorious Revolution. Glossary: accompaniment to the handout, which gives definition for all the words in bold. Checklist: to be completed after reading the handout and before giving students the scaffolding. Intended to help them summarize the revolutionary and not revolutionary aspects of each topic the handout covers. Scaffolds: one for each topic, I tend to put students in groups of 4 and give one scaffold to each member of the group. To be given to students at the same time as the mark scheme. Mark scheme: to be given to students so they know what to include in their writing, and can peer assess one another. Powerpoint: contains a quick image starter which ensures everyone knows the meaning of the word revolutionary, and a version of the checklist which can be completed as a whole class.
