I am a Science and Maths trained teacher and have to teach history. We are teaching students about the Communism and Capitalism as a lead in to studying the Vietnam War. I am teaching years 7-9 with vastly different ability levels in one class. Could anyone please give me some help with planning? http://www.tes.co.uk/ResourceDetail.aspx?storyCode=6082351 I only have one double (100 minutes) and perhaps one single (50 minutes) to cover the difference between Communism and Capitalism. I plan to start the lesson with the role play described in the link above, but am not sure what other activities to use. I have only had the students once this term and do not know how they would cope with the debate as the main part of the lesson in the above link. Any help would be much appreciated!
