Leningrad - siege decision making and sources

Leningrad - siege decision making and sources

Decision making exercise for students to discuss the impact of the siege of Leningrad AND multiple sources with GCSE style exam questions to stretch students' thinking, consolidate their learning and develop exam technique. Main lesson: Students study brief information about the siege, step by step, and discuss as a team what their response would be and why. They then compare their decisions with those really made by General Popov. This allows them to gain knowledge and understanding of the siege, of the conditions for the people in Leningrad, and sets them up to analyse its effects on World War Two. The powerpoint for the main lesson includes the background information, information for each decision, multiple choice responses, and details on what decision was really taken and why. This lesson also includes source material, with question styles taken from AQA's new 9-1 GCSE specification. Perfect for adding diversity to a study of World War Two, and for a focus on civilians. Also very useful as a precursor to studying the Cold War, as this case study allows students to build a picture of Russian involvement in World War Two, which leads to how Stalin felt at Yalta and Potsdam, and why Soviet expansion happened post-1945.
