D-Day: An Alternative View

D-Day: An Alternative View

This resource is a counterpoint to the standard view of D-Day in that it focuses on the invasion from the point of view of the Germans trying to stop it. Through three tasks the students will be asked to use their knowledge of the Second World War before 1944 to determine whether or not the D-Day landings were likely to be prevented. The tasks ask the students to develop their arguing skills as well as drawing on evidence they have collected. The key is that it gets the students to think differently and therefore is a vital companion to traditional D-Day teachings.

Make Your Own Country

Make Your Own Country

History is full of assumptions in that teachers often assume that students have a certain level of knowledge. Topics that are discussed regularly are very rarely explained because it is assumed that students know about them and understand them. One such example is the ‘state’ or ‘country’. ‘A’ level students will have heard the terms many times but will have rarely thought about what such a thing is, what it means and what influence it has. This unit aims to get the students thinking about what a country is and the decisions that go into its creation. The students will discuss and work together to create their own country and then apply what they have talked about to the states and countries that they encounter in their studies.

Assembly: The Tour de France and Marginal Gains

Assembly: The Tour de France and Marginal Gains

This assembly looks at the idea of Marginal Gains, that is changing lots of things a little in order to gain a big outcome. British cycling has used this idea and now dominates the sport. With the backdrop of the Tour de France the students can see how big changes are not always needed to make big improvements. Team Sky changed everything and the result was victory in the Tour. This is a great assembly topic as it is current and has a huge impact on students who can often feel daunted by some of the improvements they are expected to make.
