#### What were the dangers faced during D-Day?

The two objectives of this lessons are to emphasise the extreme dangers involved in the D-Day landings but also to introduce KS3 students to the new type of source utility questions at KS4 (focus on Edexcel “How useful is… for an enquiry into…” but can also work more generically for source evaluation in general). The starter is a WW2 prior knowledge quiz which reveals panels of a mystery image for students to guess. This quiz may need to be adapted depending upon students’ prior knowledge but the questions are quite standard causes/events of WW2. Students then use a fantastic 3 minute video to answer who, what, why, where when? questions about the event. To gain the necessary contextual knowledge to effectively evaluate the sources, they read a passage an highlight “Dangers faced by soldiers”. There is then an introduction to a source evaluation technique we call COP (content, own knowledge and provenance). Students evaluate the usefulness of a first-hand account of a landing on Omaha. They then write up their evaluation using a writing frame if required (SEN support). As an extension, students can try to apply the COP technique to a completely fresh photograph source. Alternatively, this extension activity makes a good homework. In the plenary, students hear some extracts from a high-level answer and have to idenify them as either content, own knowledge or provenance.

#### Quiz questions project

This resource is best used for students aged 11-18 as it is a generic template and strategy based on the value of questions and questioning. It is useful due to this. The aim is to prepare a quiz based presentation to share with others or use as a revision resource. The objectives to be fulfilled by the end of this project are; a development in the ability to devise, answer and evaluate key questions. Differentiation is by outcome or teacher selection so, for example, only the most able students are given the trickier tasks or given the role of leadership. Questions are a great learning tool, they have the potential to boost thinking, independent learning, retention, teamwork, collaboration and communication like no other strategy.
