Disarmament in the 1920s: A Classroom Roleplay Exercise
There is an introductory video to start this topic.
Using this worksheet and this record sheet, students are given different sources from different witnesses and have to analyse their position on the issue of disarmament. They then 'interview' each other by moving around the classroom, trying to reach a judgement on the key question of "Who was to blame for the failure of disarmament in the 1920s?". There are important teacher notes and sources that should be downloaded for this activity.
If you prefer a more straightforward approach to the teaching of disarmament, there is a structured worksheet you can use instead.
Agreements reached outside the League
These agreements were reached outside the League, but were ratified by it. The worksheet helps students to organise them into key categories.
Structured question task
Students complete a three-part structured question in the style of the IGCSE examination. There is a model answer available for teachers.
