An introduction or stand alone lesson on the Ottoman Empire. students have to study the different main events in the Ottoman Empire, to make an A3 timeline, and then evaluate how powerful the Ottoman Empire was at each of these points. An example is given of what the students need to create. I print off the task sheet and photocopy it into A3. I then print off the information slides and give these to the students.
