Lesson can be used for all sorts - I have used it with Titanic in recent years.
The five R's is a method used to break down and examine the historical significance of an event or person. Many historians have different variations of this method.
The five R's we will use are: Remembered, revealed, remarked, resonates and resulted.
The order does not necessarily matter, neither the need to do all five of them.
Resources here for two lessons - Can be one if you have covered Roman Numerals already. Then you can focus on the Extended Tasks.
Lesson works as an introduction into Roman Numerals and evolves into how they permeate our lives. This then feeds into the extended tasks and sees how the legacy list connects to now.
Mind maps can be used in both lessons.
The PPT presentation is the main resource. The idea is for students to practice their timeline skills and how to extract relevant information from a textbook or website or PDF.
The war of the Roses Timeline Lesson is lesson 2. Lesson 2 is free.
Lesson 1 is Hundred Years' War Timeline lesson. Lesson 1 is £2.
This FREE version of the resource contains a very basic outline and the Handout sheets which should focus the student's research into their invention. A writing prompt sheet is also there.

This bundle combines the two timeline lessons but it also provides you with resources that allow you to examine the historical significance of the events and people within the timelines. The Keep Calm sheet allows for an anachronistic lesson or homework assignment for the Hundred Years War or the War of the Roses
The PPT presentation is the main resource. The idea is for students to practice their timeline skills and how to extract relevant information from a textbook or PDF.
This lesson works best if you have a textbook that the students can use to gather important dates. If needed, you can you the PDFs with dates and important figures.
This is lesson 1 and the War of the Roses Timeline Lesson is lesson 2. Lesson 2 is free.
This lesson serves as an introduction to the Jacobites and how symbolism is used by them to export their message of rebellion. The main task is to understand and create a symbol for Jacobite. usage or you could insert Jacobite images and have student analyse the imagery for the symbolism they have just uncovered. There are info and activity sheets for them to complete.
I gained a round of applause from a class after getting the bulk of this done in an interview lesson that lasted 30 minutes. The students continued to work on it after I left! There is enough here for TWO lessons if you have not covered symbolism or any aspect of the Jacobites before.
See other topics and American West Bundles.
GCSE American West is often divided into three topic areas. Word searches for topic 1 cover:
Key topic 1.1 The Plains Indians: their beliefs and way of life
Key topic 1.2 Migration and early settlement
Key topic 1.3 Conflict and tension
These are 1-page word searches with space for definitions and additional space to have students write out the keywords three times to improve spelling. There are also 2 to page versions which also have a small space below for a single definition and single three-times write up.
These are useful starters and the 1-page versions are appropriate for aextended activity or homework.
