Market Place Game - Truman Doctrine, Marshall Plan, Comecon, Cominform, Dollar Imperialism

Market Place Game - Truman Doctrine, Marshall Plan, Comecon, Cominform, Dollar Imperialism

This lesson is aimed at a GCSE class studying the Truman Doctrine, the Marshall Plan, Comecon , Cominform and Dollar imperialism. It is a market place game which will require you to have: sugar paper, and marker pens. I have included the text from the books that I used for this, but you might want to find your own information. It is a really fun lesson that I love teaching and the kids love doing. All of the instructions and resources you need for this lesson are included on the powerpoint. I did it over a double lesson. I taught it recently for an observation and it was graded outstanding because of its emphasis on independent learning. Students begin by analysing an American source showing Stalin choking on the Truman Doctrine. The students look at this through a square of inference. Students are then put into groups, each one looking at either: the Truman Doctrine, The Marshall Plan, Comecon, Cominform or the Soviet response. Groups of no more than 5 are ideal. Students are then asked to read the text on their topic and after that have 20 minutes to answer the questions on their topic that they have been given. They must do this by symbolising their answers using no more than ten words and as many words, numbers, symbols as they want. After the 20 mins is up, one student stays at their table and the others take their A3 worksheet and go shopping in the market place to find the answers to all their questions. One student stays and teaches those that come to their market place. At the end the students go back to their table and 'teach the teacher'. At the end you ask the students to revise their answers for a knowledge test at the beginning of the next lesson.
