Card Sort / Continuum: How successful was the Weimar Republic 1923 - 1929?
This great little resource is designed to help students assess how successful were the polices of the Weimar Republic from 1923 - 1929.

The resource includes two tasks. The first task is a simple card sort where students have to sort 16 cards under two headings, success and failure. The second task, then gets the students to decide how far each factor or card was a success or failure by placing them onto a living graph or continuum. The first task is designed for lower and middle ability students, whilst the second is designed to provide stretch and challenge for middle to upper ability students.

I would recommend printing the living graph / continuum on page 2 onto an A3 sheet, but you could get your students to draw one across two pages in their exercise books, The resource is provided in word so it can be easily adapted for your students.

The aims and objectives are:

Theme: Weimar Republic 1919 - 1932
Know: What steps did the Weimar Republic take to solve Germany's problems 1923 - 1929?
Understand: How successful were each of these policies at helping Germany to recover?
Evaluate: How far did Germany recover as a result of these policies from 1923 - 1929?

WILF - What Am I Looking For?
Identify and describe: What action the Weimar Republic took to solve Germany's problems?
Explain: How successful some of these policies were?
Analyse: Come to an overall judgement on 'how far' these policies helped Germany to recover?

Anyway, have fun with these resources , I look forward to your feedback. For the price of a good cup of coffee, this resource represents value for money and a real time saver. It can be used with nearly any textbook on this topic. If you like this resource check out the others that I have uploaded to my TES Shop - The History Academy.
