The Black Death

I've used this video as an introduction to the Black Death with both GCSE and Year 7 students.

How do I use it?

We start with a brainstorm about beliefs about the causes of disease at the time. These are noted and discussed on the board. The video is then introduced as an overview of SOME of ways in which the disease spread, treated and thought about at the time.

Whilst watching the video I've had students completing a variety of tasks. The most popular of which has been Black Death Bingo. Simple reinforcement of the key words associated with this part of the course - which are then discussed when checking who the winners are etc.

Associated resources:

What was the Renaissance? An MP3 developed by Mr McDonald. Ideal for downloading and using for revision.
William Harvey An MP3 developed by Mr McDonald. An excellent way of developing knowledge of the period, and of having easy to use revision material.
Andreas Vesalius Another excellent MP3 by Mr McDonald. This time, he explores the work of Vesalius.
