In our lesson on Monday, we began to review the ways in which US society changed in the 1920s. We used the picture to the left to remind ourselves of some of the key events. Click on the picture to open it full size, and with the person sitting next to you see what you can remember about each event.
In today’s lesson we are going to be revising some of the key information from the powerpoint set of notes. If you haven’t got them with you, then you can open an electronic copy.
You should then try to find the following key facts on the notes.
We will then look together at some example exam style source questions. Your answers to these should be returned to me by Monday.
And finally, here is a word shoot out game based on the key facts from today’s lesson.
- Answer the question set
- Attempt every question
- Use details from the sources and own knowledge
If you want to deepen your understanding about the boom then have a look on the Boom and Bust page.
Year 11, the final aspect of International Relations for you to revise is the collapse of peace in 1939. The handout from the lesson will really help you answer the practice exam questions. However if you are looking to deepen your understanding it would be worth listening to this podcast about appeasement and this one about Hitler’s foreign policy. There are also some useful BBC bitesize videos on this topic, I have put links to them at the bottom of the international relations page.
History revision: Thursday lunch and after-school
RE revision: Monday lunch and after-school
I am also available to provide tutoring at lunchtime or afterschool during the rest of the week. This is particularly useful if a small group of you have missed revision and want to catch up, or feel unsure about something that we have already looked at in lessons.
The second holiday ‘boot camp’ will be taking place from Monday to Thursday of half term.
In today’s lesson we revised the reasons why there was no major war in the 1920s. As part of this you need to consider:
The useful document that I gave out at Easter ‘boot camp’, and again today, can be downloaded here. If you want to practise or repeat the reading race we did in lesson, the questions can be found here. Finally, if you are looking to break up your revision here are the revision games that we played at the end of the lesson.
Hello Year 11! It has been really encouraging seeing lots of you at revision over the last couple of weeks. It is really important that you continue to revise outside of lessons, so that our in class revision can focus on key skills and techniques for the exams. In today’s lesson we looked at the Treaty of Versailles. In particular you need to know:
- Europe in 1918
- Aims and motives of the Big Three
- Terms of the Treaty (GARGLE)
- Reactions and impact on Germany
- Arguments whether it was justified
- Reactions of the victors
- The other treaties
If you are looking to add detail to your notes, or you want to learn a section in a different way then look at some of the podcasts and videos on the International relations page.
