(0)
This is a thorough analysis of Nazi persecution against the Jews. I have found this best done after studying Nazi persecution against the Jews the period 1933-41, although it could be used as an introduction to this period. This resources provides a thorough and clear timeline of key laws and events that students can use to identify key turning points from 1933-1942. There is also a thorouh timeline on the period 1940-42 analysing the impact of the war on Nazi racial policy towards the Jews and historian’ interpretations, especially Christopher Browning’ ‘euphoria of victory’ interpretation. There is also a clear and thorough analysis of the Intentionalist and functionalist schools of thought and those of contemporary historians. Key events are also analysed according to these schools of thought to see which arguments the students find most convincing. Also provided is an overview of the debate on complicity in the Holocaust. Throughout the lesson there are key questions for students to discuss and debate. At the end of the PPT there are four exam style questions for students to analyse and plan on an essay planning sheet. Students find this resource/lesson very helpful and enjoy the rigour involved. A must for A Level historians.

Battle of the Somme - Learning curve or slaughter?

(0)
This enquiry can take 2-3 lessons to complete. Pupils work in small groups using the information sheets provided to come to their own conclusion. There is advice on how to approach the research, structure their notes and how to justify their conclusion. Pupils have to choose which historians they agree with, if they agree with either. I get pupils to move to an area of the room to make their judgement - this is shown on the PPT. Highly engaging lesson and builds the skills required on any young historian. You can add other sources to the lesson.
