Socials 11: Comparing the P.M.s and their policies (focus on the economy of the 70s and 80s)
Early to mid-80s (don't ask where the second "m" in
70s and early-80s
Today we created some notes and had a discussion about the PMs and their policies. You should have a sense for what was the government's focus during the different post-war decades. Try to get a flavour for the times - if you can put yourself in each decade and remember what life was like, you will find it easier to relate back. I tried explain some of the economic factors that bought us to the state of national debt that we now have. This would be a great topic for a sketchnote (hey, there's an idea). There is no homework.
