This is one of several powerpoint lessons that I have uploaded. The lessons are skills based and all cover war texts - from a variety of different wars. The lessons are contextualised in terms of the war period that the text originates from. The lesson is ready to teach, although you will wish to adapt and differentiate. The other lessons can be used alongside it, but all are suitable as stand-alone lessons. This lesson covers the context of World War 1.
