A simple graphic organizer exercise that asks students to create a two-column chart that lists the strengths and weaknesses of the Weimar Republic's economy. This can then be used to bridge to a discussion on whether or not the economy of the Weimar Republic was fundamentally weak. The document only includes the structure of the chart, as students are meant to create the chart themselves in their notes. Web links and the textbook upon which the exercise are based are included in the document. The exercise was originally done with an IB Year 1 but could be adapted to a younger grade if desired. It could also be done individually or in small groups.
