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.
Hello Year 10, your end of unit mock exam is fast approaching. As we discussed in lessons, there is a useful set of notes to help you with your revision of the League of Nations. The notes can be downloaded here. There are a series of suggested activities to help you learn it. There are also podcasts and video clips on this page under ‘why was there no major war in the 1920s?’.
Year 10 have been studying the Wall Street Crash. As part of that we have looked at how people can make money from stocks and shares. In today’s lesson you will look at the effects of the Wall Street Crash. However I also want to give you the chance to see if you can make some money on the stock market. Download this spreadsheet to your documents. It gives you £1000 to spend on the London Stock Exchange. The winner will be the investor who has the most money by the first week back in September. Think about which companies you want to invest in. Remember you want to buy cheap and sell high. Which companies do you think are struggling at the moment but who might be doing well by September.
