King James VI / I

The Era of the English Civil War: PowerPoint Starter | Student Worksheet

A series of images and short textual points designed to generate student interest. What was the Civil War? Why is it important to study?
To accompany this, I have produced a short video of my own which I originally created as a distance-learning resource during COVID-19 which you could show to your students.

King James I: An Overview

Students consider the personality and policies of King James I as a long-term explanation for the outbreak of the Civil War.

EITHER - King James I: The Gunpowder Plot

An in-depth investigation into the Gunpowder plot making use of primary source materials to help students decide whether the Catholics were "framed". This PowerPoint Slide could be used as a starter to the lesson, and there is also a Fling the Teacher Quiz which can be used as a factual test.

OR - ActiveHistory Mystery - The Gunpowder Plot

An engaging "Historical Mystery" designed to develop skills of question formulation, deduction, research, groupwork and essay writing. Using a range of visual and written "clues", students piece together a genuine historical mystery and work towards an independent conclusion. Worksheets and markschemes included.

QR Treasure Hunt

Whilst students are working on their essays as a homework exercise, I also like to set up this QR Code Treasure Hunt to provide them with more information and interest!
