Germany 1918-45 – 27 lesson enquiry package

viProven to raise standards, why not save yourself time and money and teach outstanding GCSE lessons?

Download our entire coherent Germany 1918-45 package.  This course completely replaces the need for a textbook.

It is fully resourced and includes 27 key enquiries designed to inspire and challenge your GCSE classes. This tried and tested, well thought approach gives you all the resources you need to teach this entire course  at your fingertips.

Let’s make GCSE lessons, less ‘death by exam question’. Instead these lessons develop high levels of engagement,  show your students the value of history as a commodity, promote active learning throughout and develop higher order thinking skills.

Enquiries end with engaging end tasks: writing to web-sites to advise them to change their content, planning documentary films, analysing film clips…

If your school is obsessed with exam answers, we have also built into each enquiry a potential exam question end. The choice of exam foci is well balanced and will show your classes what they do to answer certain key questions.
