Medieval Lives Mattered: Section 4
Telling Your Big Story of Medieval Britain
This section helps students build their own overview of medieval Britain by working through a set of layers from a very simple to a more complex overview. As well as helping KS3 students I hope this also provides departments, trainees and their tutors with ideas to discuss how they can teach overviews. As well as text and activities for students there’s a scripted drama covering the same material as pages 6-10 of the text plus a PowerPoint sequence and teachers’ notes.
Some pages may appear text-heavy but I assume you will adapt them to the needs of your classes. I believe it’s better for me to provide you with a quarry to adapt, than for me to write a sparse text and leave you needing to add material.
