Aims of this series of lessons:
- To consider the process of arguing in history in more depth;
- To develop how I plan for essays;
- To understand the importance of talking before writing.
Preparation stage:Preparation reading due by Friday 14th October – see the reading list on the Brimsham website.
The idea is for you to think about the question below and come up with some points which you can then argue on paper.
The question is:
Do you agree with the view that in the years 1515-25 Henry VIII wholly surrendered power in government to Cardinal Wolsey? Explain your answer, using sources 4, 5 and 6 and your own knowledge. (40 marks)
Post your essay plan on here (by clicking on the comment bubble) by Tuesday 18th October.
Evaluating the work of others:
By Wednesday 19th October comment on two essay plans (state who you are commenting on!). Each plan needs at least one comment. You must comment on:
a. The argument – does the plan hang together?
b. The evidence – does the use of evidence support their argument? Is there enough?
