The enquiry focuses on a political cartoon drawn in 1927 and asks students to work out not only its meaning but also how far it deals with (and anticipates!) the causes of the crash in 1929.
We have deliberately avoided using a causation essay as an end task (we’re sure your pupils get plenty of opportunity elsewhere!) but there is plenty of scope to include one after students have worked through the different stages.
