Remember that the New Deal can be a bit of a scary topic to learn. All of those alphabet agencies, and the different parts of the first and second New Deal can be a bit confusing. However, don’t panic too much because the exam questions tend to focus on three main areas:
- what was the New Deal? In particular the 100 days, and a detailed example of an Alphabet Agency
- why was there opposition? Make sure you can explain two different types
- how successful was the New Deal? Make sure you can provide detailed examples for and against

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.

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.
