“A common history between UK and France”
Down the centuries, the histories of both countries often interlocked and sometimes merged. The Vikings fought King Albert in 871 and besieged Paris in 885. William of Normandy conquered much of England in 1066. From 1154 to 1485 England was under Anjou-Plantagenet rule. French monastic orders founded many abbeys and priories in Britain, including St Michael’s Mount in
Cornwall, built in 1135 by the Abbot of Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy. For many years, English monarchs laid claim to much of France - a dispute resolved only in 1453 with the end of the Hundred Years’ War. Calais
remained under English rule until 1558. After the Reformation and Henry VIII , the churches in France and England took separate paths.
The 19th century saw the peak of the European powers’ colonial
expansion, often in competition.
The 20th century saw the two powers embark on genuine long-term cooperation through the Entente Cordiale.”

Everyone in each group should have a chance to speak. It is a very good way to help students cooperate with others. In order to work our a time chart efficiently, they have to design mini-tasks. Help can be offered when necessary.
Step 6. Practice
Give students enough time to prepare their own time chat. Then ask them to show their work in front of the class.
Encourage the students to read books to create a time chart.
