WW2-Was the USA Justified in Dropping the Atomic Bombs on Japan in 1945

(1)
Lesson seeks to challenge students to consider the USA’s justification in 1945 for dropping the Atomic Bombs on Japan. Intentionally seeks to minimise over emphasis on the moral issue which can cloud analysis of whether in 1945 (versus 2015) the USA had a case or not. Emphasis on discussion and debate but could be turned into a written answer if necessary.

WW2-Was D Day Really that Significant?

(0)
A lesson focussed on source analysis and writing skills. Students are asked to quickly summarise D Day and make a judgement on its significance based on a map, summary and short video clip. They are then provided some additional sources which provide alternative views regarding its significance before writing their final response to the Key Question. Interesting to see students making the conceptual leap from D Day in WW2 to the start of Cold War friction without being prompted.

Intro to Civil Rights - Jim Crow Laws-How did White Americans Control Black Americans 1877-1954

Intro to Civil Rights - Jim Crow Laws-How did White Americans Control Black Americans 1877-1954

(2)
The lesson looks to provide students with an understanding of why there needed to be a Civil Rights movement in the USA in the 1950s and how the Jim Crow Laws were used by white Americans to oppress Black Americans leading to organised protests. The aim is to allow students to identify various means of protest from passive to violent that can then be explored in future lessons. The lesson was delivered to a class that had not done slavery for over a year so key information on slavery leading up to the Emancipation (1863) and Freedom of slaves (1865) was built in.
Why did Britain Establish A Penal Colony in Australia?

Why did Britain Establish A Penal Colony in Australia?

(0)
This is a video lesson with voice over, however by highlighting the speaker icons in the bottom right of each slide you can quickly disable this and it will default to a normal ppt presentation… As part of the EDUQAS GCSE Crime and Punishment students must undertake a site study which for 20-21 is Botany Bay and Transportation, Although designed to support the EDUQAS SOW I am sure it is equally useful for anyone studying transportation and the penal colonies of Australia under one of the other Exam Boards. I’ve included an intermission with a great piece of music by the Dubliners (Black Velvet Band ) about a young man led astray and sentenced to transportation. The clip is freely available via the internet so encourage students to sing along or delete if you feel inappropriate.
