Edexcel GCSE Superpower Relations & Cold War L8 'Who did most to develop the Cold War 1945-47?'
Who did most to develop the Cold War 1945-47, Truman or Stalin? This lesson really focuses on oracy and the development of spoken skills which will help to develop written arguments. Students begin by considering the question 'who did most to develop the Cold War 1945-47, Truman or Stalin' and jot down their ideas. They then study information cards about the key events and attribute blame to each event before ranking them in order of importance and identifying links. The main activity is an argument tunnel where students line up to face each other to argue who was to blame (they will need to argue both sides of the argument). When the argument is over they return to the big question and answer it! Literacy support included. As always there are clear step by step instructions.
