Adolf Hitler 1889 to 1918 – His Early Years and WW1 - This resource comes in the form of a fact file and a selection of classroom exercises that are aimed at 13 to 16 year old students of 20th Century History. In addition to this there is a small section (images) that would be suitable for the PSHE programme especially in the month of November. The material in this 21 page resource documents the birth of Adolf Hitler through to the conclusion of WW1. It contains written information, pictures, maps, quiz questions and research challenges. The research challenges are ideal for perhaps two internet sessions where students need to search for extra information. The contents are best suited for Key Stage 3 and students in Key Stage 4 preparing for History examinations, particularly the topics “The Rise of Adolf Hitler”, “Development of a Dictatorship” and “The Events of WW1”. The resource materials offered should satisfy between 4 and 8 hours of work in the classroom. As an alternative it may also be offered as a home research project in preparation for GCSE examinations.
