This smart task works as a starter. Students are given 7 reasons why Hitler came to power. In just 5 minutes, and working in pairs, they have to see if they can find and explain any links between the reasons given on Resource Sheet 1 which is projected onto the screen so that students can draw the arrows and talk over the links.

They then have to prioritise the 7 factors. To start with they have to choose just 4 and justify their choice to the pair sitting next to them. They then have to refine that list of four putting them in order of importance. Discuss their findings.
