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

Introduction to WW1 - distribution of power in 1914

Introduction to WW1 - distribution of power in 1914

Pupils evaluate the power of each country by analysing whether they have an army, money, empire and any other relevant information. They then argue why they think their country is the most powerful and get into a ‘living line’ from most to least powerful. They must then defend their decision. Leads into a lesson regarding long and short term causes of WW1 including the assassination of FF.
