Churchill: great war leader?

Churchill: great war leader?

This lesson analyses the reasons why Churchill was such a great war leader. The starter asks students to consider a range of fabulous Churchill quotes and select their favourites and consider those which would be the most motivating in war time. Having established the popular view of Churchill, students then analyse factual information about the leader, categorising this into evidence that he both was and was not a great leader (the point being that he was not perfect). Students then listen to the famous “Fight them on the beaches” speech an annotate their own copy to appreciate the techniques at play. Using this knowledge, they then write their own motivational speech in the style of Churchill.
