Truman on Trial
** We’re proud to announce that the new edition of Truman On Trial (which includes lots of exciting new lesson activities and materials) was a finalist in the Education Resources Awards 2018! **
Through the lessons in this teaching pack students investigate the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945. They engage with a range of primary and secondary historical sources, and then stage a mock criminal trial to decide whether or not President Truman was justified in ordering the bombings.
The pack also contains subject-specific lessons for Citizenship, English, History and RE, including exploring media reporting, and writing haiku.
Truman On Trial pack was a finalist in the Education Resources Awards 2018 and has been designated a Global Learning Resource by Think Global. Lesson 2 (the mock courtroom trial lesson) is a TES Picks Resource.
