Course description

The Tudor period is a fascinating period of history but one that students struggle with, particularly if they have focused on modern world history at GCSE. Getting students to understand the mindset of the Tudors, with the religious and economic complexities can be challenging. This course provides you with a route map through these challenges and allows you to:

  • explore a wide range of strategies to help bring this exciting historical period to life, including the use of immersive drama techniques, conceptual art and blogging. These techniques make the learning memorable and concrete, increasing student engagement and helping students maximise their potential
  • explore a range of approaches to help students make sense of the religious context of the period. This will include virtual tours, webquests, historical blogging and how to use media effectively
  • learn how to use ICT effectively to ensure that students get the most out of their independent study. This will include podcasting, filmmaking, mobile phone apps and online study tools
  • explore source skills and exam techniques and leave with a wide range of useful source material.
