This engaging enquiry aims deals with causation brilliantly and the reasons for the economic boom in America in the 1920s. It covers the skills necessary to answer ‘Why’ questions but saves time by providing students with a range of explanations to match to the causes. This allows a greater opportunity for students to discuss and develop links between causal factors and think about relative importance. Hexagons work for links!
We have focused on improving students vocabulary, lability to link to help them with their explanatory skills. Nice!
