Role Play Overview of the relationship between Church and State

Role Play Overview of the relationship between Church and State

(4)
I use this activity in Year 7 to help students to understand the relationship between church and state. Christianity is what I think of as the ‘big idea’ for Year 7 studies, and is the context within which most of the medieval period can be understood. I think it is important for students to be able to comprehend the political nature of the church in this period, and the symbiotic relationship between spiritual and secular powers. So this is one of the first activities I do in Year 7. Of course, it can be done in Year 8 before studying the Henrician Reformation instead, but if done in Year 7 students still remember it in Year 8. Having the photographic record also helps students’ recall.

Students have work book to complete. There are a series of activities which can be arranged on different desks or given in a pack to students. The order of completion does not matter. The activities could also be done as standalone activities or homeworks Activities include - -source work activity on shell shock victims -jigsaw of a cross section of a trench -a sorting exercise for health hazards where students have to categorise various health hazard cards (in their own categories) and then prioritise greatest threat -a memory game for ‘who served in the trenches’ designed to encourage students to think about the nature of imperial warfare and to challenge preconceptions about british and french v the germans -war statistics (taken from spartacus) work -a literacy exercise on equipment - fair amount of reading but limited writing - define the terms for a ‘historical dictionary’ including as much detail as possible in 50 words. details of the activities are in the student booklet but do not have to be done like that, they are just an idea for teachers on how to use the resource

This is a great resource that I put together for a presentation at uni years and years ago. I have used it with all different age and ability groups in different schools. it should be self-explanatory as i have added notes to indicate the kind of things dicussed throughout the slide show David - Slightly harsh my man, to rate it on the basis you couldn’t see it! Its probably your firewall, as it has been downloaded many times - not that that helps! If you email me at jordansnotes@yahoo.com I will email it to you, size permitting.

6 clues to help students work out the reasons why Stalin and Hitler signed the Nazi-Soviet Pact. Most clues not very complicated but obviously they are clues, so will require some working out and teacher scaffolding to point students in the right direction

This is an outline of a lesson structure I use all the time to create more lesson time for developing understanding, rather than knowledge transmission, and to encourage students to become more independent in their arguments.

Complete notes for AS students to use as pre-reading/revision. Plus lesson activity: Students use chronology on paper slips to create a huge graph across the desks. This graph (and obviously the discussion which goes with it) answers 2 questions: was foreign policy in this period a success or a failure?; what factors influenced foreign policy in this period? Lesson plan and photograph of student graph included for reference.

PPT and follow up resources for a lesson using 'spaced learning' technique to explore the causes of WWI. Detailed notes about delivery for those who haven't used this technique before are provided in word doc. It's great fun and you might be surprised how good the students' memories are even a week later. http://www.tes.co.uk/article.aspx?storycode=6007881

Unit 5 in new Year 8 scheme of work (theme = power and protest). Begins with the preconceptions activity available here separately. THis is a cut down activity provided by the IMperial War Museum London which is excellent. The rest of the scheme of work has been written by me. Assessment task at the end with AFl marksheet. The powerpoint is to support activity 4, and is a simplified/edited version of a powerpoint on Nazi anti-semitic propaganda available separately on TES resources (by me).Please leave a comment if it is useful to you!
