Students read an account on the English Civil War, King Charles 1's execution, and answer 10 questions. This would be a good supplement to a unit on Early British History. This would be great for a sub and the answers are included where appropriate.
Sample questions include:
--Inferring from the text and using prior knowledge, why did it cause problems that Charles had married a Roman-Catholic?
--Explain the charges brought against Charles and why he did not cooperate during the trial.
--Explain Charles’ explanation of how he came to be executed in your own words.
--Why do you think Charles instructed the executioner to “stay for the sign?”
--People collected Charles’ blood after his execution for 3 main reasons. List the reasons, then, if you were present at his execution, for which of those 3 reasons would you have collected his blood and why? If you can think of another reason that you would have collected his blood what would be the reason and why?
