Two Strong Women

Two Strong Women

KS 2 History case study.

Why use this unit?

Sometimes we skirt over key elements of the periods of history we study - and so forget how they impact on the lives of individuals. This unit offers a great way of taking a closer look at either the Anglo-Saxon period or the Tudor period, and brings them to life through the stories of two remarkable women.

It will encourage your pupils to see these periods in quite a different light.

What does this unit do?

Aethelflaed and Anne Askew were two very different individuals, who lived at very different times. However, both periods in which they lived were turbulent, and both women were brave and humane.

This unit uses the lives of these two women to illuminate the times in which they lived more brightly.
