Revision techniques

babypee123
What do you find are the best techniques to revise history? I want to do effective revision but don't really know how. Thanks.

Well i study history history as well. The best way i think to revise for the subject is to read every little information your are given or on topics you particularly find difficult.

probably find a revision book, read it and answer all questions

hope this helps-_-

History Cwk: Sources sufficiency

maxtheA
Hello! How could I get an A* grade in GCSE History courseworks? I am predicted to have an A in the exam but a D in courseworks because I don't know how to do 'Evaluation of an interpretation for sufficiency'. This is my tasks: "JOHN KEEGAN, A MODERN HISTORIAN, SUGGEST THAT HAIG WAS AN 'EFFICIENT AND HIGHLY SKILLED SOLDIER WHO DID MUCH TO LEAD BRITAIN TO VICTORY IN THE FIRST WORLD WAR. IS THERE SUFFICIENT EVIDENCE IN SOURCE C TO L TO SUPPORT THIS INTERPRETATION? USE THE SOURCES AND YOUR KNOWLEDGE TO EXPLAIN YOUR ANSWER". What do I need to do to get a high grade? Please answer my question as soon as possible because I have to pass my courseworks on 18th December. Thank you!

Try to use

DETAIL - analyse the source and say what it shows or what it is saying. This source shows...

INTERPRETATION- Explain what the source is saying to its audience. The source is telling you...

CONTEXTUAL KNOWLEDGE- Explain what you already know about the subject of the source.

PROVENANCE- is this source reliable? is it propaganda?

 

hope this helps :)

Your Advice

MirrorSecrets08
It's not really a question but I was wondering if anyone can help me with it anyway. What if your taking a big exam and you studied very hard got help from friends your parents and everything. But when you get to the exam room you blank out. You know what the answer if you just don't know to get it on paper. What do you do?

HONESTLY THESE THINGS HAPPEN TO EVERYONE... SO DONT WORRY AND CALM DOWN TAKE A DEEP BREATH.

THE FIRST THING YOU SHOULD DO IN ANY EXAM IS TO MAKE A PLAN... TRUST ME IM IN MY LAST YEAR OF COLLEGE AND I HAVE LEARNT THAT A GOOD PAN MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE. WHEN IT COME TO QUESTIONS WITH BIG MARKS JOT DOWN AT ABOUT 5 DIFFERENT POINTS ... THESE SHOULD THEN NATURALLY FORM THE BASIS OF YOUR PARAGRAPHS.

FOR SHORTER QUESTIONS IT BEST YOU SKIP THEM AND ANSWER A QUESTION YOU KNOW... THIS WILL CALM YOU DOWN AND HOPEFULLY THE RIGHT ANSWER WILL COME BACK TO YOU.

REMEMBER THAT REVISION REFLECTS IN YOUR GRADE... SO IF YOU REVISE ENOUGH TO GET A GRADE YOU WANT THEN YOU WILL BE OK. JUST KEEP REVISIONG AND PUT THAT INFORMATION INTO YOUR LONG TERM MEMORY.

PLUS!!! GET AT LEAST SEVEN HOURS SLEEP... WHEN YOURE TIRED YOU CANT THINK AND YOU WILL NOT PERFORM YOUR BEST. SO DONT STAY UP ALL NIGHT!! LOL

HOPE IVE BEEN OF HELP :)

Trotsky up to 1922

princessxxcinderella
Explain Trotsky’s contribution to the success of the Bolsheviks up to 1922 is the title of my coursework. Can sum1 giv me sum info on his role in the civil war, the revalution, n the peace treaties?

right!!! i love this!!

ok...so all u have to say is compare trotsky's character with lenin's, which is basically like this:

1) lenin is the ideas man, and trotsky is the guy with teh hands who does everything.

2) lenin represents the bolsheviks and gives inspiration to the russian civilians. trotsky represents the reds, the bolshevik army, and gives the soldiers inspiration to do great battles and win for teh bolsheviks to succeed.

3) lenin was responsible for pushing the bolsheviks to take over after the provisional govt after his exile, and he came back with the "peace, bread and land" (april theses).

4) however, trosky was responsible for the major wins over the whites and teh armies of intervention (the allies of WW1).

5) he was also responsible for silencing the kornilov revolt (which helped general kerensky, but put the bolsheviks on the map as russia's natural heroes.

6) remember the navy officers who mutinied after War Communism (with the 2 aims, 1 = to keep the Reds supplied with food and blankets against the whites, 2 = to enforce communism whilst the war is going on)?? that was because teh 2nd aim failed and ppl starved and there was hunger. trotsky drove his checka against the navy and killed all 100,000 of them. nice! but basically, without trotsky stopping them, the bolsheviks would never have gotten into power, coz there wud have been a big ublic outcry!

i'll type in more wen i get more ideas...but for now, hope those have helped!

history coursework ww1 question 3

bbnash

The Following were Equally Important Reasons Why Life For Soldiers Was So Difficult On The Western Front

- The conditions in the trenches
- The strategies of the army generals
- New technology like the machine gun
- The Terrain of the area

Explain How Far You Agree With This Statement

 

i need help outlining the strategies of the army generals because ive missed alot of school and either missed this part or havent been taught it! any help would be appreciated xxxxxx

Well the problem with the army generals was that, before they became such high ranking officials,  they faught in wars which did not involve such mass killing.  With many technological advancements such as the machine guns (as you mentioned), many more men were being killed.  This had a negative effect on the soldiers, who saw many of their comrades die in horrific circumstances, and yet the so-called tactics of their superiors did not change.  They used the same ideas they had been using for the past 20 or so years (ie: 'going over the top' of the trenches) which, as we now know was a sucide mission as you basically ran into the path of a machine guns.

However, for the humble tommy, there was little they could do about such problems.  They could complain to their superiors, but their opinions carried little weight.  This combined with very bad conditions, made life very hard for them indeed.

Personally, I would recommend that you watch Blackadder Goes Forth (Especially the last one) as it shows - in a satirical style) the pressures of war, but also the conditions they had to live in. 

If I remember correctly, the last episode shows the problem with the generals (I believe Blackadder himself says it) so it would be helpful to you.

It may seem like I'm just telling you to watch TV but honestly, the way in which they deal with the 'big push' was so poignant a tear escaped my eye...

Hope that helps!!
