  • What makes a good conclusion???
  • Have a look at the conclusion at the end of the model answer you have been given. What makes this a good on bad conclusion? Discuss on your tables.
  • Now have a go at writing your own conclusion to your answer based on work we have just done.
  • ‘……………. was the main reason that Henry VII was able to consolidate his authority’. Assess the validity of this view.
  • Before we peer assess our answers, we are going to look at an attempt to answer a similar question and decide which level it should receive. You will need to read through and comment in green pen on the following areas. Once you have finished you will need to give it a level on each of the different areas and then an overall level (remember to explain your scores)
  • Introduction
  • Have they attempted to do the following:
  • Define – Give context and define key terms.
  • Criteria – how will you judge the main reason for the consolidation for HVII’s authority?

  • Main body:

  • ‘……………. was the main reason that Henry VII was able to consolidate his authority’. Assess the validity of this view.
  • Now you have finished you will need to give it a level on each of the different areas and then an overall level (remember to explain your scores)
  • Now swap your work with a partner and repeat the process:
  • Comment on the sections
  • Give a level for each area
  • Give an overall level
  • ALL IN GREEN PEN!
  • How far had Henry VII consolidated his authority?
  • Good learning:
  • Describe what society was like in the early Tudor period
  • Great learning:
  • Explain how and why Tudor society changed
  • Even better:
  • Evaluate how far Tudor society changed under Henry VII
  • Key Word:
  • How did English society and economy change and with what effects?
  • What was English society like in the early Tudor period?
  • English society at the end of the fifteenth century was hierarchical and based on a class system. At one level society had changed very little from that which had existed during the high point of the feudal system. The system under the monarch comprised of great land owners and senior churchmen, those below comprised of those who worked on their behalf. In contrast, society also witnessed the growth of a professional and mercantile bourgeoisie (m/c residents in towns and cities) who had become increasingly important in places like London, Bristol and Ipswich. The remnants of the feudal system were still apparent in the law, social relationships and attitudes. However, economic pressures, especially since the Black Death of 1348-49, had increased social mobility and had created alarm amongst more conservative-minded members of the upper class who attempted vainly to uphold traditional values.
  • Make a copy of the following diagram and add on any information about them from your homework onto it.
  • How did Tudor society change?
  • TASK
  • Around the room there is information on each of these groups within society.
  • You will need to make a copy of the grid on the next slide and pull out what changed and also explain why it might have changed.
  • Nobility
  • Few in number (40-60). Own large areas of land = power and influence. Strict inheritance rules of primogeniture. King relies on Nobles for support and to maintain law and order in the localities. They are a powerful minority.
  • Gentry
  • 5000 gentry families (knights and esquires). Military role but also involved in local government. Landowners but not to same extent as nobles.
  • Yeomen and artisans:
  • Growing group in society. Yeomen = prosperous farmers. 60,000 (Guy). Artisans work in the cloth and wool industry.
  • Peasants:
  • Live in the rural community, work based in agriculture. Do not own land = most vulnerable!
  • Vagrants and Beggars:
  • Without a master, roam the countryside. Not under control = fear.
  • How did Tudor society change?
  • Group
  • What changed?
  • Challenge: Why was there a change?
  • Churchmen
  • Nobility
  • Gentry
  • Commoners
  • Merchants
  • Swap your grid and check your partner’s answer. Add in anything they have missed in green pen.
  • Overall, how much do you think Tudor society changed during this period?
  • How much social change was there in this period?
  • Extract A:
  • As society grew, differences between one class and another narrowed. Men who had acquired wealth through trade or farming built houses and bought lands that were every bot as impressive as those of the traditional aristocracy. ‘Emparking’ – the consolidation and enclosure of fields to create parkland for country estates – was another sign of new found wealth.
  • The sixteenth century saw the rise of the gentry class. This was a large, ill-defined group below the titled nobility, but above the tenant farmers and small landowners. They were defined more by their personal wealth than by titles. They could be prosperous farmers, wealthy merchants or men from long-standing families of knights, esquires or gentlemen, but all were able to live comfortably for their income without having to resort to working for a living. The expansion of this group helped to cause an obsession with the symbols of rank as those with traditional status tried to protect their elite position.
  • From A. Anderson and T. Imperato, An Introduction to Tudor England, 1485-1603.
  • TASK
  • Read through the following extract and pull out all the arguments.
  • Write a conclusion based on the following question:
  • ‘With reference to the extract and your understanding of the historical context, how convincing do you find the extract in relation to the scale of social change during the reign of Henry VII?’
  • Eliminate the irrelevance
  • Based on what you have learnt, look at the paragraph below and pull out any information that would NOT be relevant to the following question:
  • To what extent is it accurate to say that there were increased opportunities for social mobility during Henry VII’s reign?
  • Early modern English society was structured and governed by strict rules and so that everyone knew his or her place. The church taught that God was responsible for these rules, which were explained in the so-called ‘Great Chain of Being’. The different ranks in society were determined by title, wealth, and breeding, which made it virtually impossible for members of the lower rank, the commoners, to improve their social status. However, by developing the economy and promoting the increase in trade, henry VII provided the means by which enterprising members of the commons could make a fortune. For example, Robert Wolsey, a butcher and a cattle dealer in Ipswich, used his wealth by trade to educate and promote the ecclesiastical career of his son, Thomas. Thomas entered the service of Bishop Richard Fox, where he learnt the art of government and administration. Thomas later became Lord Chancellor and one of the most powerful men in England under Henry VIII.

  • These statements are too general and don’t add anything extra to the answer.
  • FLIP LEARNING
  • The work due in for next lesson is as follows:
