Introduce young people (for ages 14 to 19) to the principles of international humanitarian law or the “rules of war”. Explore what they are, why we have them and their importance in governing what is and is not allowed in armed conflict. Created a series of Citizenship lessons with our animated film and dilemma-based scenarios.
develop an understanding of why we have rules of war
explore dilemmas associated with armed conflict
understand the fundamental principles of the Red Cross, including humanity, neutrality and impartiality
explore what is acceptable and unacceptable (legal and illegal) during armed conflict
articulate their thoughts about the importance of international humanitarian law.

A handout for study/revision use (AQA 9-1 GCSE). Four page document outlining density (with the required practical); internal energy; specific latent heat; pressure and Boyle’s Law. Includes the equations relevant to these topics.
Intended to be printed shrunken down and double sided, so it all fits onto one piece of A4 paper.
This is a complete presentation on Nuremberg Trial International Criminal Law which is highly visual and thoroughly annotated. Eichmann's later trial in Israel is also covered plus finding Mengle drowned. There are also 20 multiple choice questions with answer key.
EXCERPT: PROCEDURAL ISSUES (bullet points)
* prosecutors and defense attorneys were used
* no jury
* decisions and sentences were imposed by a tribunal (panel of judges)
* chief prosecutor was Robert H. Jackson an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.
* each Allied power supplied a main judge and an alternate.
* technological innovation of instantaneous translation by IBM solved the language barrier problem (4 different languages among all involved).
* IBM provided the technology and recruited employees of international telephone exchanges.
* IBM provided on-the-spot translations through headphones in English, French, German and Russian .
EXCERPT: DEFENDANTS (bullet points)
* Nazi defendants were allowed to choose their own lawyers
* most used defense: the crimes defined in the London Charter were ex post facto laws (laws existed after crimes were committed)
* next most used defense: trial was victor’s justice–the winners (Allies) were applying a harsh standard to crimes committed by Germans while minimizing crimes committed by Allied soldiers.
EXCERPT: DIRECT TESTIMONY GOERING (bullet points)
* The defense put Goering on the witness stand. Goering’s attitude was that of an unrepentant Nazi.
* He reviewed his distinguished military service during the First World War.
* He recalled his fateful meeting with Hitler in 1922.
* Goering recalled his bond with Hitler was based on their opposition to the Versailles Treaty.
* He gave the theory and practice of Nazism at length.
* “I had done everything possible to strengthen the National Socialist movement, to increase it, and have worked unceasingly to bring it to power under all circumstances and as the one and only authority..."

The starting point for the theory can be either Kirchhoff’s second law or conservation of energy in the circuit (the same thing really) but a general discussion based on the circuit diagram below should use a variety of approaches
Children should learn about the need for international cooperation in order to address matters of global concern and to describe the methods by which international agreements can be implemented in the absence of an international court. This is lesson 4 in a unit of work.
Join astronauts on-board the International Space Station to learn more about Newton's laws. Learn about the inverse relationship between mass and acceleration when calculating force and see what the equation f=ma has to do with rockets.
2 Worksheets consisting of 20 questions related to electromotive force and internal resistance calculation. Application of knowledge of circuits (parallel and series), as well as Ohm's Law, to determine electromotive force and internal resistance of dry cells. Questions do consist of theoretical analysis by students as well. Suited for students in KS 4.
