WW1 Medicine on the Western Front - free historical enquiry and resources for GCSE (Edexcel 1-9)

WW1 Medicine on the Western Front - free historical enquiry and resources for GCSE (Edexcel 1-9)

A fully resourced historical enquiry designed for those teaching the Edexcel (GCSE 1-9) unit 'The British Sector of the Western Front, 1914-18: Injuries, treatment and the trenches.' It has been ceated by the UCL Institute of Education team leading the national education programme for the First World War Centenary. This enquiry examines how effective medical care was on the Western Front in the First World War. The principal focus will be on looking at medical care by the British Army. The enquiry will look at a range of sources and encourage students to evaluate their impact before reaching a judgement as to the effectiveness of medical care on the Western Front. Students start by considering the types of wounds, injuries and medical issues which were common on the Western Front. This information is then set in the wider context of how the wounds were treated and who treated them. The effectiveness of these methods is then assessed. Further tasks then look at what happened when a soldier was wounded and ultimately will ask the students to reach a judgement on how effective medical treatment was on the Western Front. Students will look at a wide range of sources of evidence, including posters, statistics, photographs and secondary accounts. The end product will be a written answer in response to the enquiry question.
