War and the development of Penicillin

Used as a lesson in the Public Health and the People thematic British Medicine study at KS4. Gives specific detailed knowledge of how war involving Britain and the US led to developments in the use of penicillin with key exam criteria, deconstructed models and an exam style question. The activities encourage students to write a sharply-focussed response that shows detailed knowledge of Britain’s role in the development of penicillin showing the complexities of change and the relationship between cause and consequence. The challenge tasks encourage pupils to think about revision strategies and the effect of Nazi persecution on Jewish scientists and its wider consequences. Made during a drive on engaging and challenging lessons in History.
