Bloody Sunday enquiry: KS3 thematic history

We can all see the potential of using the recently-published Saville enquiry in our study of Ireland as a relevant contemporary topic. Many of you do this superbly with your SHP Modern World Study, or as an enquiry at the end of KS3. But have you thought how you could weave this topical reference into a broader KS3 thematic study of Protest through time. I would have thought comparisons with the Peterloo massacre would be interesting. If you look at my outstanding lesson on the website you will see that the blue plaque in the Square where the  incident took place talks about dispersal of the protestors. There’s no reference to anyone at all being killed ! A good activity would be to get them to re-write the plaque!
