AQA GCSE 9-1 Conflict and Tension 1918-1939: The League of Nations Part 2

AQA GCSE 9-1 Conflict and Tension 1918-1939: The League of Nations Part 2

This series of eight lessons introduce the second part of the AQA Conflict and Tension course 1918-39 and focus on The League of Nations. Lessons come complete with suggested teaching strategies and differentiated learning tasks. I have included many of the typical GCSE questions AQA have so far supplied, from source analysis, write an account to the longer 16+4 mark questions. The last lesson in particular sets out the 4 questions types and gives examples of how to answer them. The lessons are broken down into the following: Lesson 1: Introduction to the League of Nations This lesson aims to question the purpose of the League of Nations and why it was set up in the first place Lesson 2: The structure of the League of Nations This looks at how the League operated and how its structure had many inherent weaknesses Lesson 3: The Commissions Despite its idealistic aims, students learn that League did have some successes particularly with its Commissions Lesson 4: How successful was the League of Nations in the 1920’s? This lesson prepares students for the GCSE question, ‘How successful was the League of Nations in the 1920’s?’ by analysing various international disputes and the League’s response to each Lesson 5: The decline of International Cooperation This is a free lesson in which students study the impact of the Great Depression and the consequences for the League Lesson 6: The Manchurian Crisis Students evaluate the League’s response to the invasion of Manchuria and the impact this had on the League’s international standing Lesson 7: The Abyssinian Crisis Students evaluate the League’s response to the invasion of Abyssinia and the destructive impact this had on the League’s international standing Lesson 8: Was the League destined to fail? This final lesson analyses the root causes of the League’s failure and gives model answers to the four GCSE question types If you like these lessons, please visit my shop where I have created lessons for the first unit of the AQA course on Peacekeeping as well as revision guides on Conflict and Tension 1918-1939. https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/Pilgrim17

Princess Anne Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson British Royal Family

Princess Anne Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson British Royal Family

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of ‘Princess Anne’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

AQA GCSE 9-1 Conflict and Tension 1918-1939: The League of Nations & the Abyssinian Crisis

AQA GCSE 9-1 Conflict and Tension 1918-1939: The League of Nations & the Abyssinian Crisis

The aim of this lesson is to explore the reasons why in the face of unprovoked hostility and belligerence, the League of Nations did little to stop Italian aggression against Abyssinia and why Britain and France went out of their way to appease Mussolini. Students analyse the reasons why Mussolini invaded Abyssinia in the first place. But more importantly they evaluate the role of the League and its clear inability to act decisively, even before Britain and France undermined its very foundations. When students have built up a clear picture of the whole incident, they are then ready to tackle a ‘write and account’ question for homework.
