The Recovery of the Weimar Republic, 1924-29

Aims and Objectives:
To understand…

  • the reasons for economic recovery, including the work of Stresemann, the Rentenmark, the Dawes and Young Plans and American loans and investment.
  • the impact on domestic policies of Stresemann’s achievements abroad: the Locarno Pact, joining the League of Nations and the Kellogg-Briand Pact.

The Power Point leads students through all activities with accompanying resources. Activities include a whole class Stresemann human graph starter where students rate his level of success versus failure in light of new information before reaching an overall verdict (this can be done on a piece of paper with a line labelled from -5 to +5 for a quieter lesson), a summary table on Stresemann’s achievements, extension work considering perspective and how some achievements could also be regarded as failings, a source usefulness exam question with advice and support.
