This is a lesson from a scheme of work covering the new Superpower Relations and the Cold War. This is designed for the new Edexcel GCSE History unit but could be easily adapted for other curricula..
The focus of the lesson is to investigate the key features of Detente and for pupils to begin to judge the impact of it.
* Please note: This lesson includes two tasks which require a textbook to complete. This could easily be adapted for any Cold War text as the themes are quite general.
During this unit, pupils will complete the following activities:
- Cartoon source analysis to investigate the attitudes people had to the deals and agreements made between the USA and USSR during this period.
- Odd one out image activity to recall knowledge about detente from previous lesson.
- Complete fact files about the key aspects and impacts of SALT I, SALT II and the Helsinki Agreements. (Textbook or additional resource needed)
-Source and image analysis looking at attitudes towards the effectiveness of detente and the agreements reached.
