    65436459[/url]]Your focus would be entirely on the presidents and the way they helped to develop or hindered the civil rights movement- but you could mention that some Presidents who experinced preassure from the movement were more likely to act for e.g: if Johnson and JFK didn't experince preassure from MLK/white liberals/pro-CR media would they really challenge the congress in passing the Civil Rights Act 1964?
    Would Nixon and Rgean adapt Affermitive Action if violent protests did not erupt due to socio/economic inequality.
    Truman was preassured to act during WW2 becase he coldn't afford a rebellion in America at the time of WW2 where unity was needed thus in order to prevent P.Randolph and his March of Washington proposals he called for the FEPC and desegregated armed forces for the sake of creating unity amongst Americans abroad and keeping Randolph happy.
    This would be your Evaluation/Analysis so it is good to bring it in just don't write about MLK who he was/ his achievements ect, just mention that he existed and he put preassure on the Federal government
    Sorry I just noticed the second part of your question; for leaders you would only discuss leaders and their tactics, achievements, groups that they established and the legacy that they left e.g: MLK- the MLK day became a federal holiday, Tuskagee Institutes continue to exist, NAACP still exists ect

    If the question is assess the view that civil rights leaders were the most important reason for development of civil rights you would talk about civil rights leaders and how they contributed towards development, and then compare it to other factors e.g; federal government, change in white peoples attitude, ect

    That's the first time they've ever asked specifically about the Supreme Court!

    TU seems OK as it's a turning point question and they're quite standard.

    I remember answering the women's one - I can't for the life of me remember answering the one of the others as I wouldn't have known what the heck to say!
    For the Supreme Coourt question you'd just do all three branches of the gov as your factors and decided if S.C. was most important

    GUYS!! If the question for native americans was: to what extent was the federal government the most important factor hindering the development of Native American civil rights
    What factors other than the federal government and the disunity of the natives themselves could you talk about or would that be it?

    You could also refer to westward expansion and impacts of the civil war in 1865, world wars and urbanisation in the 1960s

    Here's an answer from the mark scheme on fed govt: you can't really argue much other than that it was NAs or federal government...

    Hi Guys I'm struggling on how to answer this question:
    The concept of the melting pot did not apply to Native Americans throughout the period. How far do you agree??

    I would answer that question in terms of how successful assimilation was throughout the period.

    I'd argue that de facto they hindered as they didn't enforce 1924 ICA and created a climate on reservations so dire that it made them less inclined to want to take part in the political process. Or something like that? Hope that helps x

    Hey thanks, do you know how to synthesise the information I'm really struggling right now like are there any links that could be made over the course of the whole period?

    Also how many pages do you normally write for each question- I'm not sure how much is enough.

    Sorry for all the questions

    Sorry for all the questions
    I honestly don't know how many pages to write- it depends on how much you have to say about the question i suppose, past ones I've done have been about maybe 4 and a bit? It completely depends.

    Links over time could be 1924 ICA with Harrison v Laveen 1948
    Massacre at Wounded Knee 1890 with its occupation in 1973
    Dawes Act 1887 with US v Sioux Nation 1980
    Lone Wolf v Hitchcock 1903 with the termination policy in 1953
    Red Power 1960s with Plains Wars in 1860s e.g. Red Cloud War 1867

    I'm struggling a lot with this paper too though

    GUYS- how would you answer the question
    To what extent were the activities of white racist groups the most important reason for continued discrimination against african american civil rights in the period?

    Other than the KKK what other groups could you talk about?!
