‘Which of the following had a greater impact on helping America recover from the Great Depression: New Deal or World War Two?’
Pupils have been studying 1930s USA looking at the impact of the Great Depression and how the US recovered from the economic crisis, as part of the Opportunities and Inequalities in the USA unit of their GCSE course. Pupils were given an exam question to demonstrate their learning and understanding and to build the skills necessary to answer questions well. Here is an excellent example of an answer written by James, using the information he has learned and applying it with great effect to answer the question. He was self-motivated to improve on his work further, following the feedback he was given.
