These lessons allow you to explore the causes in different ways. They do work without textbooks.
Lesson 1 has the students looking at the causes from the point of view of Cromwell and looking at them as Power, Money and Religious causes. You should watch the first 10 minutes of the Cromwell Film. It is on DVD and edited parts are available online.
Lesson 2 has the students exam a list of cases as if they were Power, Money or Religion or Political, Economic, Social, Cultural or Miltary factors.
Lesson 3 or alternative for Lesson 2 looks at the list of events as Long, Medium, Short term and Trigger Causes. Here you can explore the snowball effect of events or shifting pendulum. (Watch more of the film)
Lesson 4 makes use of the students previous, three lessons, your discussions and the film for them to form their own opinions. There are model answers and various supporting documents for them to use.
These lessons can be combined. You can make use of the Wordles as fascinators or starter activities. The word searches can be starters or homework activities.

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.
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 different inventions are given out as A4 prompts for their research.
The writing frames are then given out to serve as starters for the writeup.
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.

Check out my BUNDLE of Jack the Ripper Lessons.
The idea behind these lessons is for the students to determine which of the suspects is their "preferred" Jack and examine why.
Students can do their own research on their suspect at http://www.casebook.org/
Vic Reeves does a physical and psychological breakdown of the suspects. This can be shown as Lesson 2 or 3. I prefer to show it as Lesson 3 and have the students complete their suspect profile or even present an alternative suspect due to new information.
A simple worksheet which could be a homework task.
Locations of bombing to be noted on the map.
Some students may add the number of bombings or other statistics.
