End of WWII and the dropping of the Atomic bomb
2 lessons building towards an assessed piece of writing - "Was the dropping of the Atomic bomb on Hiroshima justified?" Lesson 1 covers the end of WWII in Europe, and highlights America's role in WWII and the island hopping campaign - excellent video from Crash Course World History is hyper linked. Students will need to watch the BBC worldwide documentary on the dropping of the Atomic bomb, which should be available in clips on Youtube. Lesson 2 gives a significant amount of focus to AFL and preparing for an assessment, students work in pairs to analyse and level paragraphs and then create a bubble-map which will help them to come to an ultimate decision about the dropping of the Atomic bomb. A homework task is included, assuming that Lesson 2 will take a class over two (possibly 3) lessons.
