    Edexcel History - In search of the American Dream

    My essay is based on Theme 2: The quest for civil rights 1917-80

    Question: How far do you agree that migration to the North for African Americans was due to the pull factors rather than the push?

    I've got all the info sorted but I'm not sure how to structure the essay so if you could help that would be appreciated! Thanks!

    You could try a yes/no paragraph so paragraph 1 and 2 would be pull factors and, the 3rd and 4th would be push factors.

    Maybe try doing main point, 3 evidence, analysis (could be at the end of the three examples or at the end of each) and link to question in each paragraph.
