To discuss trench warfare as a characteristic of the first world war

[lo 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.5, 3.3, 3.5]


When the war broke out, Germany was forced to fight on two fronts: in the East against the Russians and in the West against the allied forces of Britain and France. Germany had planned to crush the Western resistance swiftly and then to go to the aid of the weakened Austro-Hungarian forces, fighting on the Eastern front against the Russians.

However, on its route to the capital of France, Paris, the German advance was halted at the Marne river. There it was engaged in a trench war* that lasted all of four years.


Differentiate between source a and source b

[lo 1.1, 1.2, 3.3, 3.5]

SOURCE A Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary of Current English edited by A S Hornby

  • Complete:

Source Ais a ______________________ type of source. My motivation for

my answer is _________________________________________________

I think Source ________is more useful to the historian doing research, because



Study source b and think about the information received

[lo 1.3]

SOURCE B: ILLUSTRATED FACTOPEDIA, Dorling Kindersley Limited, London. 1955

1914 – 1916: For the first time air planes were used as weapons in a war. A great improvement was made in speed, range and power


FOKKER TRI PLANE This plane was the most famous plane used by the legendary German ace pilot, Manfred von Richthofen (1892 - 1918) – the “Red Baron”

SOURCE B is a good example of the amount information that can be communicated by means of a picture and by a verbal description.

Assignment: collage or poster

  • This is your chance to make a beautiful, creative collage OR an orderly and colourful poster with pictures and words for your portfolio.
  • This is your chance to make a beautiful, creative collage OR an orderly but colourful poster with pictures and words for your portfolio. Ask your teacher about the format of your work: if it has to go into a file, then please use the next A4 page, page 15. If the work will be displayed on the classroom walls, another format should be used. First decide on the message that you want to deliver, like Stop War, Make peace, Colonization, Women in War, etc.
  • Do not damage books!! A colourful copy, gets more marks. Select the pictures that you are going to use.
  • Remember that a successful collage needs different textures in pasting. Use letters of different sizes and typefaces. Name your sources again (use the correct method) on the back of the collage.ame:____________________________

Learning outcomes (LOs)

LO 1

Historical Enquiry

The learner will be able to use enquiry skills to investigate the past and present

Assessment standards(ASs)

We know this when the learner:

1.1 continues to identify and select a variety of historical and archaeological sources relevant to an inquiry [finds sources];

1.2 evaluates the sources used (e.g. “Who created the source?”, “Is it reliable?”, “How useful is the information?”) [works with sources];

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
What is lattice structure?
s. Reply
of graphene you mean?
or in general
