Here is a Cultural Literacy worksheet on Anne Boleyn. This is a short worksheet–two sentences and three questions.
From 1533 to 1536, she was the second of Henry VIII’s wives and therefore the Queen of England. She was beheaded for treason. Henry VIII was a piece of work, and this material opens a lot of questions about monarchy and the virtually unlimited power it conferred upon Henry. In my experience teaching high school social studies, Henry VIII’s wives tend to be glossed over in deference to the issues of secular and religious power his reign raises.
