Conflict and Tension 1918-39: The Allies and Germany's reaction to the Treaty of Versailles

Conflict and Tension 1918-39: The Allies and Germany's reaction to the Treaty of Versailles

This lesson focuses on the various attitudes and reactions of the Allies after the Treaty of Versailles was agreed and signed. To discover if they were satisfied or not with the results, the students analyse and evaluate a range of sources before coming to conclusions and judgements for each country. Students are given hints on the meaning of the sources and have to interpret their usefulness (which is the exam question 2 on the paper). The lesson comes with suggested teaching and learning strategies and answers for the differentiated questions and tasks set.
