Although it would probably be quite inaccurate and one-sided to attribute the full blame of WW2 to Hitler’s regime, it’s the actions of Hitler reversing the terms of the Treaty of Versailles that brought WW2 to a start.
During the 1st part of the 1st Term, we shall be reading and analysing the short term causes of WW2. You will work on oral presentations in groups.
Below, you will find your groups as well as the guidelines to make your presentations.
We are in for a year of hard work and, hopefully, new and interesting challenges!
The subject we will be studying together is History, world History. Senior 1 is the first year of a three-year preparation for IGCSE that is the international exam you will be sitting for in Senior 3.
Our course will have 4 periods a week. For each class you will be expected to bring your History book and an A4 folder with 2 divisions: 1) Recalling Historical Data AND 2) Graded Work. At the same time, you will need a category in your blog that will be “History” and a subcategory within that category that will be “Essay Writing”.
You have until the end of March to get you material and blog ready. I will bechecking everything by then.
Tests as well as blog assignments and paper assignments will be posted in the class Calendar.
Let’s start right away! Below I have shared a Ted Talk with which I would like to start our lessons this year.
