Carisbrooke Castle. Teachers' Resource Book.
Carisbrooke Castle in England, Charles I's prison for nearly a year, is a complex historic site with walls dating from the early 12th century and additions and alterations incorporated over later centuries. This guide may be used by teachers preparing their students for an on-site visit, or as an independent study of an English medieval castle. The guide is organized in three main sections. The first consists of background information on the building and its history. The second contains suggestions for teaching approaches, including preparation and follow-up work aimed mainly at the 9-12 year old range. Topics include: "Clues"; "Spies"; "The King, the Servant, and the Gaoler"; "Now and Then"; and "Wells, Walls, and Treadmills." Reproducible activity sheets are provided. The third section gives practical advice on how to organize a visit. A 42-item bibliography including books for teachers, books for children, films and videos, slides and software, posters, and cassettes and records, concludes the guide. (MM)
