Source 1: written by a German fighter pilot, in a letter home in 1940 Failure “cold blooded killing”, I went up and down spraying t hem with bullets” NO – because it is written by a German pilot who is the enemy Written in 1940 during the war, so he would want to look successful He would also be affected by propaganda He might want to make himself look brave and successful in his letter to his family His letter might reassure his family that Germany is winning the war and he is safe

13 Film – Atonement (2008) Source 1 Source 2 Source 3 Source 4 Source 5 Extension source 25 minutes

14 Extension – 1.Rank the sources into ‘strength of reliability’ eg. which from the most reliable to the least reliable 2.How does this affect your judgement? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_yhuh p880s

15 Mid task peer assessment Swap notes with the person next to you. Read through their work and complete the reflection notes: 1. Are they able to decide on success or failure (level 3) 2. Do they give any supporting evidence? (Level 4) 3. Can they decide if the source is reliable?(Level 5) 4. Can they explain why the person has that interpretation (Level 6) WW comment EBI comment 10 minutes

20 Learning Objectives:Learning Outcomes: What happened at Dunkirk? Was it a success or a failure? Write your own interpretation. You will write your own interpretation of what happened at Dunkirk. (Level 4) You will explain why people have different interpretations? (Level 5) Some of you will explain why interpretations differ over time (Level 6) Historical Skill: Interpretation (Last studied – WW1 comparing Blackadder & Gallipoli)

21 Starter – complete the table to show your knowledge When? Where? What? Why? How? How does the author of a source effect the interpretation? Source FailureSuccessWhy? British General organising the evacuation  He would want to look organised and successful unreliable German Gunner BBC radio broadcast at the time EXTENSION: Photo in a history book

22 Starter – complete the table to show your knowledge When? May 1940 Where? Dunkirk beach, France What? Operation Dynamo 300,000 troops rescued Why? rescue troops from the Nazis How? Mostly by sea, steamers, fishing boats, How does the author of a source effect the interpretation? Source FailureSuccessWhy? British General organising the evacuation 1960  He would want to look organised and successful unreliable German Gunner’s letter home to his family 1940  He may want to reassure them BBC radio broadcast at the time  Propaganda would lie to keep morale high Photo in a history book  Intention is to inform, no reason to lie

23 Task… Task: –Write your own interpretation of what happened at Dunkirk. Was it a success or a failure or a bit of both in your opinion? –You can present your ideas in any way you like (e.g. written document, leaflet, secret report, advert, A4 Poster, ) (Success Criteria) - Your interpretation should include: –A picture that reflects your interpretation; (this can be found for homework) –Factual knowledge of what happened to support your interpretation; –A catchy title that reflects your interpretation; –Conclusion: –Why do people have different interpretations of the past (Level 5) with supporting examples (Level 4). –Why might interpretations change over time? (Level 6)

24 Example 1: Triumph at Dunkirk: British Troops return victorious to fight another day! I think Dunkirk was a victory for the British. Evidence to support this comes from Source 3 which tells me that “it is clear that they, (the soldiers) have come back in glory; that their morale is as high as ever and that they are anxious to be back again”. This means that they did not feel defeated and wanted to continue fighting. From my own knowledge, I know that 300,000 men were rescued and that this was a significant number of men. This was important to the long term future of the war because it meant that the men could fight again another day.

27 ‘DOMESDAY AT DUNKIRK’ I think Dunkirk was a disaster for the British. While it is true that they did succeed in saving 300,000 troops and this is an achievement, I feel that the price paid was too high. Sources 1 and 5 both show examples of the failures. For example, source 1 tells us that a German pilot killed many soldiers while they waited on the beaches, “the beaches were jammed with soldiers. I went up and down spaying them with bullets”. This shows us that the evacuation was not quick enough. However, the German pilot is the enemy and he may have an unreliable interpretation of events, making himself appear more successful than he actually was. That said, source 5 supports this – I can see dead bodies in the photo and abandoned equipment. I can therefore infer that the evacuation was not that successful.
