Third task: pupils to look at the various grievances in Wales (and personal factors regarding Glyndwr), and categorise them into SPEAR factors. (Bloom's Understanding and Analysis)
Fifth task: pupils consider the most important reason(s) why Glyndwr and the Welsh rebelled, and explain whether or not Glyndwr was a reluctant rebel. (Bloom's Evaluate)
