    I would love Impact of WWI, anything social/political or something about the 1920s policies.

    I'm so bad with the last Chapter, I haven't even revised it. I think I should maybe go over it because I have a feeling that the economic impact of ww2 will come up
    Impact of world war 1 would be the ideal question and yeah I think world war 2 prosperity will come up although not sure they would have both part A's based on impact of war

    Do people genuinely think women could come up? Seems like there's not really enough on it...
    Plus, looking at past questions, it seems they repeat a lot, so idk if they'll just add a new one in?
    I think it's worth considering as a possibility, it's on the syllabus but it's likely it'd feature as a wider question perhaps old vs new

    And I hope so!!! This would be my all time favourite question, they focus mainly on the post war prosperity and the economy however the position of African Americans, women, trade unions and veterans is explored in the textbook

    they have done individual questions for the other social/political questions so it's possible, however, i think it may be general, like rural vs urban

    Yeah but stuff like the KKK, prohibition, immigration etc is gone over in a LOT more detail
    I'm hoping its general - or like the sample paper ('The USA was a land of intolerance')

    30 marks were
    ‘The US economic boom of the 1920s was mainly due todevelopments in technology and manufacturing.’ How far do you agree with thisview?Why did anti-communism affect US society so greatly in theyears 1947–54?
    the GD question was whether flawed republican policies caused the depression, not sure what the ND one was sorry!

    Not really, questions usually come up in relation to a whole time frame or decade. I doubt it will be that specific.
    Though if there were any prohibition questions were to come up, it would be about the advantages or disadvantages, or the social and economic impact of Prohibition.

    Prosperity in the 1920's was more apparent than real, how far do you agree?

    Is there any chance a question like that will come up? I know the boom came up last year but that was looking at the causes rather than a comparison essay

    Sure!

    This is a question I have done that covers society in WWII, 'What improvements did WWII bring to the American people?'

    I ran out of time to talk about the trade unions, but I would've spoken about the Taft Hartley Act of 1946 - considered a milestone in federal and labour relations; which equalized the power between trade unions and employers e.g. Charles Wilson of General Motors and Walter Reuther, leader of the UAW agreed on a 'no strike policy' in return for increased wages depending on productivity and profits - therefore there were fewer disruptions, regular employment and the ability for wages to increase.

    hope this helps!
