Afternoon topic learning
Your topic learning for today and Thursday afternoon is to answer the following:
What was the British Empire?
You should research the British Empire during Victorian times and produce a 2 page information text which includes both aspects of history and geography.
To start you off you can find some sources here but you should also do further research online. Remember to analyse the sources using the LACE method as we have been doing in class
LOOK: Describe what you can see
ASK: What questions do you need to ask, and answer, to make sense of what you have seen?
CONCLUDE: What have you learned about the British Empire from this source?
EXPAND: What more would you like to know about? How can you find out?
On Friday, when you have finished this I would like you to write an essay which answers the following questions:
- What did Britain gain from having an Empire?
- Was the British Empire good for the countries that were a part of it?
- What is your opinion of the British Empire?
