New History OCR A revision activities - International relations

New History OCR A revision activities - International relations

A lovely lesson (could easily be several) lessons for GCSE students to revise the international relations unit especially for OCR, but would work really well with AQA and Edexcel modern world syllabuses. The ppt explains the variety of tasks - Various slides should also be printed out as instructions for each table. Some of the tasks are also on the slides, but others are extra attachments such as the explain away game and the timeline cards. This is a good way to keep yr 11 engaged and proactive during those last few lessons.

Nagy announced a set of proposed reforms – authorised release of political prisoners, ended 1 party state. 1000 Russian tanks were sent and 4000 Hungarians killed fighting the Russians. Nagy executed. Consequences: • 200,000 Hungarian refugees fled into Austria. • Russia stayed in control behind the Iron Curtain. • People in the West were horrified. • Became clear that Western Europe would not come to the aid of Eastern European countries. • Khrushchev’s position became more secure in the Soviet Union. • Example that Warsaw Pact members should do as they were told by Russia.
