Head2Head Interview – Teacher led activity to determine if Churchill was prejudiced
The teacher now defines the key words in each of these questions, and then ‘interviews’ Churchill about each one. Students record the findings in terms of negative / positive responses.
Were you racist?
Were you sexist?
Were you antisemitic?
Were you islamophobic?
Were you homophobic?
This detailed, stand-alone study unit is based around an interactive Head2Head Virtual Interview with Winston Churchill.
The unit is designed to be used with Year 9 students (13-14 years) but is easily adaptable to other contexts.
The unit develops sourcework and essay-writing skills, and the outcome is a detailed, structured essay answering the key question “Was Winston Churchill a hero, or a villain?”.
