Cold War counterfactual question cards 

This resources was inspired by Russel Tarr’s brilliant new book – A History Teaching Toolbox. In the book, Tarr discusses in depth the use of counterfactual scenarios in lessons, I won’t go into depth here as you really need to buy the book to read the exploration of this idea in depth. However, I thought that the use of counterfactual questions would be a great way to stretch and challenge my Y10 class as there many able students in the group who would appreciate such a challenging thinking task. With this in mind, I have created a number of counterfactual question cards for students to use and present in lessons as an extension challenge. This can also be used as an alternative revision task or homework exercise.

  1. These are excellent! Can I use them in my classroom? If so, how do I access them? (I tell the pupils I teach History for a reason, technology passes me by! 😁)
