    ok, here are some 'Liberal Reforms - Sources/Questions' you can have a look and think about..its all good exam practise, it helps if you time yourself too

    remember to look at the first post, to see how to do sources..
    http://www.learningcurve.gov.uk/brit...ete_g2_cs3.pdf

    also...

    i have found a revision website.....that has podcasts and powerpoints on the three subjects

    http://www.mrallsophistory.com/revision.html


    also, here is how they might ask questions, so think of ways to answer these

    1. What is the message of this source? This is usually a cartoon. You will be expected to say what the message is and use the information in the cartoon to explain how you know this. You also need to use some background knowledge to explain what was going on at the time this source was produced and why this message was produced by whoever made the source.


    2. What does this source tell us about? This will mention a certain thing e.g poverty. This may only require you to mention the source if it doesn't add using your own knowledge. You need to explain the content of the source and how it helps you to understand the topic in the question.


    3. Why was this source produced? This is often the poster question. Remember you must use the content to explain and look at who made the source. Is it propaganda for an issue or a political party? Is it something they have produced to publicise something? You also need to include your own knowledge to explain why the source was necessary at the time as often this type of question will include a date.


    4. How useful/reliable/trustworthy/accurate is this source? Again it will give you a topic like to explain why the Liberals introduced Old Age Pensions. You need to explain how it is useful/not useful using source and your own knowledge. It is the same for the others. You will need to consider who wrote/made the source and why with what was the context (background) again you will get higher marks for using own knowledge


    5. Comparison questions look at more than one source and are usually which is the most useful/reliable etc. In these you need to judge sources and do the content of both. You must use your own knowledge of the issue and the producer of the source to make a judgement.


    6. Support questions. These compare two sopurces and ask if they support each other. You would need to write about the content of both sources and and say what is similiar (supports) and what is different (doesn't support) You will need your own knowlege to explain


    7. Lastly the essay question. You need to look at all the sources and show which sources agree or disagree with the statement. How many depends on how much time you have but try to group them together. You can get up to 10 marks for just explaining how far they agree or disagree and using contextual knowledge to judge the sources. If you examine the reliability of some sources you can achieve full marks of 12.

    My advice is read all the sources before you start writing and make a little plan first

    I hope this helps

    remember guys, to make sure you still revise HOME FRONT as how im thinking now...LIB. REFORMS sounds a bit too obvious

    so 'mind the cornyness' Don't put all your eggs into ONE basket

    this is how long if you divide your time by the number of marks:

    a) 4 marks = 7 mins
    b) 6 marks = 10 mins
    c) 8 marks = 14 mins
    d) 12 marks = 21 mins



    -- i thought, i would put that in here..it seems quite good info

    In regards to the Liberal Reforms periods, what position did Llyod Geogre and Churchill hold and what were there responsibilities. Was Llyod George the PM? and Churchill the Chancellor of the Exchequer? Were the reforms e.g. National Insurance Act Lloyd Georges ideas?

    On the top of my head, David Lloyd George was a leading liberal then became Chancellor of Exchequer in 1908. Churchhill was previously a member of the conservative then swap sides because of the reforms in the Liberal.
    Not sure if that's right....

    Yes, I think that's right. Churchill swapped sides in 1906, in support of the reforms.

    Well my teacher was at a OCR History Conference and when they asked will Liberal Reforms he said " I couldn't possibly say" with a smile on his face. Which apparently almost definitely implies it will be.

    ok, I will revise the Home Front as well, what are the main sections?

    Prorpganda, Conscription and Rationing.

    Also acts like DORA? Which gave the Government way more power such as the power to censor any news it wanted?

    What did you mean about the Total War thing?

    It's OCR, and they have it on Wednesday, yet I think it classes as Schools History Project, alas it can do no harm.
