Teaching Nazi Germany at KS4 and saving you time

I don’t know if it is just me, but I seem to have less and less time during the waking hours, to really think through and plan lessons. This week I went to a meeting about data Monday evening after school, spent Tuesday after school chasing kids and phoning parents and putting data into a database, planned and delivered whole school INSET on Wednesday and spent Thursday until way after dark preparing paperwork for a Local Authority visit.

Where is the time to think about lesson planning gone? I can vaguely remember in the days when schools were not accountability measuring mad, that we got to sit down with our colleagues and come up with lesson ideas! Departmental meetings were actually useful, when they were timetabled they were a joy.

Luckily, I work for myself on a Friday and sometimes get time to breathe. I have been working hard, in between running history courses, trying to create some cracking lesson enquiries on Germany 1933-45 to help fill this ‘no time to plan’ hole. I have spent the last 6 months, and lots of cups of tea coming up a series of what I think are pretty great lessons on Germany 1933-45.

So, if you want to download an entirely resourced Weimar and Nazi Germany course that doesn’t need a textbook, you could spend some of your departmental budget here. 27 well thought through enquiries. Each one is fully resourced and you can adapt the powerpoints to your own needs.

If you want  the Weimar lessons you can get them here.

If you want the Nazi Germany lessons you can find them here.

For individual lessons look here. More will uploaded by next weekend.

Happy History teaching!
