This enquiry uses the classic mystery enquiry approach to work out why the Berlin Wall came down.
It requires students to come up with their own ideas and justify them using evidence.
The stepped approach also reveals the evidence to them in stages allowing the story of fall of the wall to build up. This will ultimately be useful when tackling the narrative account style questions.
Your class will finish by having the contextual knowledge they need without them having to answer an exam question!
