AQA Power and Conflict comparison carousel

AQA Power and Conflict comparison carousel

I designed this lesson after marking mock exams so students were given feedback and this lesson aimed to address their weaknesses. There are some sample comparative responses to Remains and War Photographer where student discuss good and bad responses and try to extend them. They then complete a carousel - teacher places a poem at each station and students compare it to a poem of their choice. just a brief PQA on a piece of sugar paper. Works well as they move round as they can respond to other student answers.
