When teaching history it is important to make sure that every student can see themselves in the curriculum. Intentionally spending a day to focus on a central female figure in European history is important, and my students have given me the feedback that it was refreshing to learn about such a powerful female monarch.
This lesson provides students with a biography of Eleanor of Aquitaine and asks them to use it to write a résumé for her. Once complete, students will know of Eleanor’s importance, and also start to see their time in the classroom as a way to develop their own skills and experience. I talk more about having taught this lesson here.
This product includes
• A two page biography of Eleanor of Aquitaine.
• A PowerPoint to activate prior knowledge and guide the activity.
• Two résumé templates students can reference as models.
• A map that show Eleanor’s, Henry II’s, and Louis VII’s territorial holdings.
• A homework assignment asking an open-ended question on Eleanor's life.
