IB History source analysis: OPCVL introduction

(0)
This ppt introduces question 2. of Paper One. It is designed to get students to THINK about the nature of sources, which is then linked to the OPCVL of the IB paper. To hook each student in at the start of the lesson I give them a small cup of Coke at the start of the lesson and ask them to observe their partner after drinking their respective drinks. (It generally isn’t an amazing experience). We then watch the three Coca Cola adverts on slides 2,3,4 which links in to OPCVL. I then do a follow-up activity: read the school prospectus and then walk around the school and compare the reality. We then discuss this as a group and apply it to the OPCVL. It isn’t a detailed ‘how to answer source questions’ ppt but it is effective in capturing attention and getting them to consider the OPCVL of sources.

This resource would be useful for an overview of Hitler’s time in power, from 1933 to 1945. There is a section at the end that gets students to consider the nature of Hitler’s leadership which is in line with the Cambridge A Level paper 3, however the questions should be accessible to KS3 and above.
