3 The 4 mark ‘inference’ question Students write an answer to this question, then compare with next slide.Don’t use your own knowledgeGive ONE supported inference. You could do 2 to be on the safe side.Support your inference(s) with a direct quote from the source.
4 The 4 mark ‘inference’ question What can you learn from source A about Nazi policies towards young people in Germany?THE EXAMINER SAYS….The answer picks up on something the source suggests, but doesn’t actually say about policies towards young people – ie. it makes an inferenceThe answer doesn’t use wording which is too close to the wording of the source – this is copying or paraphrasing, and would only get 1 markIt backs up the inference with a short quote from the sourceSource A suggests that the Nazis thought children and teenagers should be fit and healthy. I know this because it says “programme of camping, sporting activities and marches”. These activities would encourage a fit and healthy person /4 marks
5 How were children indoctrinated at school? Teachers97% joined the Nazi Teachers’ League and swore an oath of loyalty to Hitler. Those who didn’t promote Nazi ideals were sacked.TextbooksThese were re-written to fit the Nazi view of history and racial purity. Mein Kampf became a standard text.Separate schools for boys and girlsGirls had a different curriculum including domestic science (cookery and homemaking) and eugenics (how to produce the ‘perfect’ child by carefully selecting the father!)LessonsThey began and ended with students giving the Heil Hitler salute. Nazi themes were woven into every subject. 15% of the timetable was PE.

9 The 6 mark ‘describe’ question Describe the policies of the Nazi government towards the young in the years 1933–39.One Nazi policy towards the young was to make membership to Hitler Youth compulsory by This was so that boys could be prepared to be soldiers, and girls to be mothers and housewives. At Hitler Youth, boys did activities such as jumping over fire to prepare them to be brave for war. At the League of German Maidens, girls were taught how to cook and make beds. Both were indoctrinated with Nazi ideas by watching films like ‘The Eternal Jew’, an anti-Semitic film.A second policy towards the young was to indoctrinate children at school. They had to spend 15% of their timetable dedicated to PE as Hitler wanted a strong army and for the girls to be fit, so they would have strong children. School subjects were adapted to teach Nai ideals. For example, in history, students learn about the history of the Nazi Party /6 marksHOW DID IT GET 6/6?Clear policy identified in first sentence of each paragraph, eg.
