Module 4: The 1916 Easter Rising
This module will explore the different ideals that were present amongst the Irish population before the Rising and how the militant ideals led them to launch an ambitious rebellion on Easter week, 1916.
Overview and Curriculum
The module identifies and analyses the different ideals that eventually led a small band of rebels to rise up and fight against British Rule in Ireland. Key personalities – male and female - will be highlighted and their significance to the Rising will be discussed. The module will document the events of Easter Week and the significance of the suppression of the rebellion had on the population. For the final lesson in the module, students will learn how the Rising has been commemorated throughout the years and consider how these events can be respectfully remembered.
Each lesson provides students with opportunities to learn through questioning and investigation based active learning methodologies and links to a series of archive images, audio and video. The digital tasks provided will enable students to form creative expressions of the learning that they have developed around the conflict in Northern Ireland.
