Cunning Plan 178: How far did Anglo-Saxon England survive the Norman Conquest?

Teaching History feature

By Eve Hackett, published 27th March 2020

Cunning Plan for using the metaphor of a tree to help students characterise the process of change and engage with a historian’s argument.

In this Cunning Plan, Eve Hackett sets out how she used a recent work of history about the Norman Conquest as inspiration for her teaching of Year 7, rooting her pupils’ learning in the story of Edward the Confessor’s dream of England as a tree. Here, she shares her planning and some resources, as well as her reflections on what went well in her enquiry.
