New KS3 History PoS: Overviews in one lesson
 
1. Overview of Anglo-Irish relations since the 12th century on one lesson

Sub-questions

The lesson uses visual sources to ask:

1. Is seeing believing?

2. How would you define English views of Ireland and the Irish?

3. How far do Irish attitudes challenge the English views?

b. provides an introduction to depth studies of Anglo-Irish relations, such as those
provided by Ireland in Schools: http://www.iisresource.org/pos_01.aspx.
