You should also consult the complete schemes of work for the following topics:
Stage 1: Decide as a class upon the three main themes to look at for domestic policy. Add these as the headings in the right-hand side of the table.
Stage 2: Start by completing a chronological-based summary in the row of the table allocated to you. Aim to include around three key points in each cell.
Stage 3: go back through and highlight successes / failures in different colours.
Stage 4: Frame TWO prosecution questions against the President you have been allocated ("It is not true that...and my evidence for this is...").
Stage 5: Share these questions before the end of the lesson. You will then be given a different president to DEFEND. Prepare your responses over the weekend in preparation for the debate that will take place in a later lesson.
This comprehensive printout provides a thorough breakdown of the domestic and Latin American policy achievements and failures of every US president between 1945-1980. An ideal revision resource in the run-up to the final examinations.
Stage 1: Start by completing a chronological-based summary in the row of the table allocated to you (NOTE: Your teacher may ask whether you would rather 'swap' to a president you have neither prosecuted nor defended yet). Aim to include around three key points in each cell.
Stage 2: Go back through and highlight successes / failures in different colours.
Stage 3: Frame TWO prosecution questions against the President you have been allocated ("It is not true that...and my evidence for this is...").
Stage 4: Share these questions before the end of the lesson. You will then be given a different president to DEFEND. Prepare your responses over the weekend in preparation for the debate that will take place in a subsequent lesson.
At the end of the debate outline above, each member of the class at the International School of Toulouse had to sum up each President's performance as a 'topic sentence'.
Suggested task: Consider which sentence you think is the best expressed; which sentence agrees / disagrees with your own view; what particular evidence you would use to develop / challenge different viewpoints.
