Churchill Archive for Schools is a completely free, open-access website designed to help build students’ skills and confidence in using primary sources.
The resource supports all three sections of the IB Diploma Programme History Internal Assessment:
The Internal Assessment is worth 25% of a Standard Level learner’s final grade and 20% of a Higher Level learner’s final grade.
There are 14 topic-based investigations in this growing resource. Each one sets an overarching enquiry question for students to consider and includes a short essay introduction to each topic, a selection of documents from the Churchill Archive, teachers' notes and support for understanding each primary source. They have been split into four different categories:
In addition, you’ll find a useful Primary Source Skills Guide which will help answer some of your students' key questions: What is an archive? Why are letters, photographs and newspaper cuttings so valuable? How do we interpret and understand historical documents?
Schools can also register for free access to the full Churchill Archive, a digital archive of modern international history which contains 800,000 pages of original documents from 1874 to 1965.
