    I'm currently teaching at a primary school, where I've been for 10 years. I have recently made the decision that I want to move into teaching secondary or A-Level history (I have a BA in history and have just submitted my thesis for a research masters).
    I applied for a job at my local sixth form college, not expecting much luck, and have today been invited for an interview. I have to teach a 20 minute lesson on war communism, 1918-21. I've done a bit of swatting up this evening, but any suggestions for activities etc. would be very gratefully received.
