Market Place Activity: What impact did war and technology have on surgery 1900 – 1945?

Market Place Activity: What impact did war and technology have on surgery 1900 – 1945?

This resource has been designed to help students studying the impact of war and technology on the development of surgery. The resource can easily be adapted for display purposes but it is designed to be used as a collaborative market place activity. Once complete, students should have a summary of the key developments and be able to make a mini judgement on which had the greater impact, war or the development of technology during peacetime 1900 - 1945? The tasks and activities have been written to appeal to the full spectrum of ability and have been set up around the market place activity where the key slides in the PP are printed off and either pinned on the classroom walls or set out on the tables so that students move around and fill in their information on the summary sheet. This is a proactive lesson designed to get students up, moving around, sharing and working collaboratively. I have provided additional differentiation by 'ragging' or grading the difficulty of the slides / sources so that the learners can chose their level of challenge. When you purchase this resource you will receive a lesson plan as well as an 18 slide presentations which includes a snowballing starter, collaborative squares enquiry to be used with the video clip, information slides for the market place activity and a thinking skills review triangle plenary. The information slides include facts about the developments of X-rays, blood transfusions, plastic surgery and fighting infection through saline solution, sulphonamides, Salvarsan 606 and Penicillin. The aims and objectives for these resources are: Theme: Modern Medicine Know: What changes took place to improve surgery in the early 20th Century? Understand: What impact did war and technology have on surgery? Analysis: How significant were these changes? Skills: Enquiry, Source Analysis and Team Work WILF – What Am I Looking For? Identify & describe: What changes took place to surgery in the early 20th Century? Explain: What impact did war and technology have on surgery? Analyse: How significant were these changes?

The Outbreak of World War One - Who was to Blame? (Academic Interpretations)

The Outbreak of World War One - Who was to Blame? (Academic Interpretations)

Once determining what an interpretation is, students are then required to consider a number of different academic interpretations about who was responsible for the outbreak of World War One. This lesson is of great relevance for higher ability KS4 students and particularly KS5 students, and works brilliantly as a skill building lesson.
