Classroom Ideas

Students could use this clip to discuss how the Scottish Reformation was able to progress so quickly under the regency of Mary of Guise. The class could investigate the growth in power of the Lords of the Congregation and John Know as well as the changing relationship between them. Discuss the role of James Stewart, Earl of Moray, in arranging the compromise that allowed Mary to return to Scotland.
