PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson covers the three main reasons why the German people elected Adolf Hitler as Chancellor of Germany in 1932. It uses an equation structure to frame a written piece at the end answering the big question.

The lesson begins with a photographic source that the student shave to analyse. what does it tell them about Germany in the early 1930s. It shows a poor german street divided between Nazi and Communist voters.

The lesson then continues on with a comparison of advertising and election propaganda. You can print out the relevant slides for the students to annotate as I do. You could also use this as an opportunity to gather lots of adverts yourself and compare the different techniques used. the powerpoint has notes to help the teacher pick out the key parts of each source during analysis.

The equation I use for teaching this topic is:
The weaknesses of the Weimar Government + Problems inside Germany + Hitler's personality = his election.

The students read through a worksheet containing information on these three topics and complete questions beneath. (the sheets are best photocopied up to A3 size for space to write.) I have included the longer answer worksheet and the same thing with more direct shorter questions so you can differentiate for your students.

I hope you find useful!
