This resource is a lesson in the Weimar Germany GCSE topic. It includes a SmartNotebook and Word document. The focus of the lesson is 1923 which was a very difficult year for the Weimar Republic in its infancy. This lesson reveals the 3 key crises that the new government had to deal with and why they were significant in their own right and collectively.
The students are given the chance to work with a peer for the starter to build upon prior knowledge and help set the scene in their minds. After being introduced to the crises they then develop explanations of why each crisis was significant and reach judgements about which was the most significant problem for the Weimar Republic. They do this by using information to create a poster that is judged against their own success criteria,
There are concepts and skills tested including description, explanation, analysis, judgements of significance and potentially relative importance.
