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.
This resource uses an image of the Shanghai Massacre to introduce the start of the Chinese Civil War. This is followed by an activity on the ideology of the opposing sides of the conflict.

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.
