Year 9 revision

Posted: May 14, 2012 in Year 9

1. Keywords – they are on the Year 9 keywords page.

2. Questions and answers on Germany 1918-39.

These will be taken from the Longman ‘The Twentieth Century World’ Year 9 textbook. I will hand out photocopies of the pages needed for all students. There will be 15 questions worth 20 marks.

3. You will be asked to analyse a source. Remember that these can be both accurate and inaccurate.

3. Appeasement – You have to write a short essay on this. As you have written a short homework piece on this, you should have materials already. However, the following websites will help;

From BBC bitesize.

From the Spartacus Educational website.

From John D Clare’s website, a former GCSE chief examiner.

4. Treaty of Versailles – You need to be able to explain what happened and what was decided.

Again, if you visit the International Relations page, there are several links and a video clip on the Treaty.

5. You also need to write an essay on either Field Marshall Haig, the causes of the Second World War or the Battle of El Alamein. These have been depth studies during Year 9 so students should have material on them, or know the whereabouts on this blog.
