10A1 Homework on the Treaty of Versailles

Your homework for next Tuesday is to answer the following 4 questions:

1.What did Lloyd George hope to achieve from the treaty? (4)
2.Explain why France wanted a harsh peace treaty on Germany? (6)
3.Explain why the Allies punished Germany in the Treaty of Versailles.(6)
Remember for the 4 mark question.  The examiner is looking for 4 points or 2 detailed points.  You must not bullet point though.
For the 6 mark question you need to pee.  Point evidence and explanation.  Each paragraph should begin with a signpost sentence.  A signpost sentence does the following: it links to the question, it can prioritise (place the reason in order of importance) and it sets out what the paragraph is about.  For example
One of the key reasons why France wanted a harsh peace treaty on Germany was because it wanted revenge.
To develop your explanation use connectives aswell. Connectives link your ideas and by using these you can change a point into an explanation.  Have a look at the examples on the sheet attached
