The Cannon - Change in Warfare

The Cannon - Change in Warfare

A whole lesson as part of a KS3 Change in Warfare unit. The lesson is completely ready to go. Interactive and engaging. Discussion of a source as a starter. Brief contextual overview Group work to become experts on 1 of 3 case studies of early cannon use. (I have designed the task to produce a news report but could be altered to be an ask the expert task very easily. Information sheets are built into the powerpoint.) Students give their news reports whilst the class collect information about each in a table. Assessment comes in the form of a PEEL paragraph with useful sentence starters. Hope you enjoy :)

A whole lesson with worksheets and fully differentiated that compares Tojo, Hitler and Stalin. Pupils identify what a dictator is and who the three men are They describe/explain how a dictator is able to rise to power Compare similarities and differences between the three men Evaluate who changed the most things in their country and why we remember their atrocities rather than the positive changes they made to their countries.
