A lesson that investigates the reasons why Chamberlain appeased Hitler. The lesson starts with an appeasement scenario game whereby students in small groups (2-3) must decide on the best course of action. Their decisions are scored. They then examine the reasons for Chamberlain's actions which link to the scenarios that they discussed during the starter game. After swapping data and discussions the students must decide if appeasement was the right course of action. They end by writing up their findings which is a good opportunity to develop GCSE skills (especially the 16 mark and 20 mark questions whereby students must be able to offer counter arguments and reach a supported conclusion). Writing frames are included for the less able which talks them through these skills.
