Learning objectives

In this lesson, students will gain a chronological understanding of the Gothic tribal movements at the end of the ancient period and the start of the early medieval period. They will develop an awareness of the causes of these events, and the significant consequences of the changes resulting from this time. Students will have the opportunity to achieve this through choosing their own method of learning, from research and watching options, as well as the chance to engage in extension activities. This lesson includes a self-marking quiz for students to demonstrate their learning.
