AQA GCSE 9-1 Conflict and Tension 1918-1939: The League of Nations & the Abyssinian Crisis

AQA GCSE 9-1 Conflict and Tension 1918-1939: The League of Nations & the Abyssinian Crisis

The aim of this lesson is to explore the reasons why in the face of unprovoked hostility and belligerence, the League of Nations did little to stop Italian aggression against Abyssinia and why Britain and France went out of their way to appease Mussolini. Students analyse the reasons why Mussolini invaded Abyssinia in the first place. But more importantly they evaluate the role of the League and its clear inability to act decisively, even before Britain and France undermined its very foundations. When students have built up a clear picture of the whole incident, they are then ready to tackle a ‘write and account’ question for homework.

AQA GCSE 9-1 Conflict and Tension 1918-1939: The League of Nations & the Manchurian Crisis of 1931

AQA GCSE 9-1 Conflict and Tension 1918-1939: The League of Nations & the Manchurian Crisis of 1931

This lesson is split into two; the first part concentrates on the Mukden incident and the causes of Japan’s invasion into Manchuria in 1931. Students analyse a map of the area before completing a jigsaw puzzle and explaining in their own words (or pictures) the causes of the invasion. The second part of the lesson focuses on the consequences on the invasion and how powerless the League was to act, despite moral condemnation from Lord Lytton’s report. There are some excellent links to video footage of the invasion in the lesson and how the League reacted to reinforce the learning. Students also have to decipher some visual images and text to build up a clear picture of the whole incident before they are ready to tackle a ‘write an account’ question.
