The 2nd Sino-Japanese War of 1937 was a significant event in modern history, marking the beginning of World War II in Asia. It began with the Marco Polo Bridge Incident in July 1937, which led to Japan’s full-scale invasion of China. This conflict lasted for eight years until the Japanese surrender in 1945. During this time, the Chinese people were subjected to widespread atrocities, including the infamous Rape of Nanking.
To help students understand the significance of the 2nd Sino-Japanese war, this lesson plan provides an overview of the efforts made by the Chinese to defend their country. The lesson also highlights the role of the Second United Front, a military alliance between the Chinese Communist Party and the Chinese Nationalist Party, which was formed to fight against the Japanese invaders.
The PowerPoint is designed to engage students through various activities, including watching a film, answering comprehension questions, analysing sources, writing an essay plan, and creating a Pikochart or mind map. The film provides a visual representation of the 2nd Sino-Japanese war. The comprehension questions can test students’ understanding of the film and their knowledge of the war. Source analysis can help students develop critical thinking skills by examining primary sources such as photographs, maps, and speeches.
The lesson plan also encourages students to write an essay plan, which can help them develop their writing and research skills. Creating a Pikochart or mind map can help students organise their thoughts and visually represent the key events and concepts related to the war.
By studying the Second Sino-Japanese War, students can gain a deeper understanding of the events that led to the outbreak of World War II in Asia and the impact of the war on the Chinese people. The lesson plan can also help students develop critical thinking, research, and writing skills that will be useful in future academic and professional endeavours. Overall, the lesson plan provides a valuable opportunity for students to engage with a significant event in modern history and develop their skills and knowledge.
