A specific lesson on the AQA ‘How Convincing’ GCSE question aimed at high-ability pupils (targeted grades 7-9).

This 1 hour interactive lesson is designed for low-ability students at KS3. As the League of Nations is quite a heavy topic this lesson gets the students to act out what happened with the League of Nations, and also why it did not work out as well as originally hoped.
