By juxtaposing Churchill’s Iron Curtain Speech with a statement made by Khrushchev in 1971 you will establish two very different views about who did most to develop the Cold War?
Who was more important in the development of the Cold War 1945-47 Stalin or Truman?
Your students will collect evidence supporting both views to help answer this question.
They will then argue with each other in an argument tunnel.
To make their arguments stronger you will get them to link events together, to see the consequences of the different events in this period.
Simple but effective.
