AQA GCSE history lesson on the reasons for the offensive, the events of the offensive and its ultimate failure.
We start with a simple multiple choice retrieval practice quiz. We then have a brief recap of the situation for all sides at the beginning of 1918 and the reasons why Ludendorff felt a major offensive was the only option. After a brief look at Ludendorff’s backstory we watch a video clip whilst the pupils answer questions on the plan itself. We then look step by step at the events of the offensive and the pupils summarise and answer questions. We then record Ludendorff’s reaction as the news of problems with the offensive reaches him. The pupils need to justify why he would react in that manner. We then look at the reasons for the failure of the offensive by using a source and complete some exam practice using a 16 mark ‘to what extent do you agree’ question with guidance.
