Gifted and Talented - History - Causal Reasoning: WW1

Description

In this programme, an innovative causal reasoning model that stretches all pupils is applied to the complexity of causes of WWI.

Casual reasoning is a key conceptual skill in history. Here, a Year 9 history class are asked to consider whether two bullets were responsible for the 20 million deaths that resulted from WW1.

The mixed-ability students, from Cottenham Village College, apply the skills and vocabulary developed in a previous non-content model to the causes of the war.

Head of history James Woodcock builds on the work of NAGTY history consultant Arthur Chapman and takes the class through various exercises, enabling all pupils to advance their conceptual thinking.
