Wars and Welfare: Social Issues, Class and Poverty

Wars and Welfare: Social Issues, Class and Poverty

This is a lesson I have made for the new AQA 2M option 'Wars and Welfare: Britain in Transition 1906-1957'. I teach this unit using the Oxford AQA History book by Thomas and Willis so there are a couple of references to this book in one or two of the activities. There are a range of audio, kinaesthetic and visual activities here - catered towards AS Y12 students. There are some discussion topics too - a good intro to the issues of poverty in Britain at the time and why the Liberals wanted welfare reforms. A presentation is included here as well as a fair few resources I have made.
