New Resources for Later Medieval History

The HA has put online a range of open-access resources created by teachers on the HA’s Teacher Fellowship on later medieval history.

See them HERE … on the HA website

These resources comprise materials on:

The Battle of Agincourt (GCSE) – a role-play helping students understand the narrative of events and the reasons for Henry V’s success

Hundred Years War sources (A-level) – a collection of source material on the events of 1415 to 1453 for use in courses and for independent studies

Wars of the Roses sources (A-level) – a discussion written for students which explores the nature of late medieval sources, how we use them and summarises contextual information about major sources

Wars of the Roses ‘Who’s Who’ (A-level) – activities to help students work out ‘who’s who’ 1437-1485 together with a lengthy set of mini-biographies of key figures students study

Medieval and Early Modern gallery (A-level) – an activity developing students’ sense of period through visual sources

Feedback

Constructive feedback is always welcome, particularly anything that will help other teachers.
