Should Walter Raleigh be honoured with a national day of remembrance?

This enquiry encourages students to explore the concept of significance.

They apply the model advanced by Geoffrey ParJngton to judge the significance of the explorations made by Columbus and Raleigh.

Students rate the significance of these explorations using a radar graph.

They have a choice of end tasks allowing them to demonstrate their new knowledge.

This is a great enquiry for deepening knowledge of early modern exploration, but also for developing an understanding of that important historical skill: significance.
