This is a complex role-play activity that takes place
off-timetable, combining both GCSE and post-16 historians. Students
participate in teams, taking on the roles of six nations in 1919:
debating and voting on the terms of the Treaty of Versailles. The
of the competition allow the Chair to penalise any teams for making
empathetic or anachronistic errors. The project also includes an
where teams can plan secretly in advance and communicate for the
duration of the project.
The video opposite includes a number of films taken
from various years of the project. The films were made by the student media
team, who also play a role in the conference.
