Product Description

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.
