I did 100 years on the Tudors (my exam board was OCR though) Different people in my class chose different monarchs from the period or particular issues that happened during that period for example, relations with another power at the time like France. One person even did about pirates I do believe :p:

Umm i don't know much about american civil rights... umm maybe something to do with the president(s) in america at the time and compare their efforts to Martin Luther King? (hope im in the right period of history and the right topic :p:)

Other than that I haven't got a clue, hope I gave you at least a small idea/jumping off point... (you could always do a spider diagram of all the topics covered during the period your studying - see if that gives you any ideas )

Yeah our personal study is the Tudors this year, I think it about their effectiveness as monarchs. I'm with AQA though.

Seems rather interesting at the moment, I'm happy that we just get given a question when some of you have to choose... it is a hard hard choice haha.

At my school we're doing the European Witch-Hunts 1560 - 1660. We are choosing our own questions which has been hard but the areas of debate have been really interesting.

What about something a long the lines of:

Were the extremest tactics of Malcolm X more successful than those tactics used by Martin Luther King, in an attempt to attain full Civil Rights for African Americans?

I'm doing the development of the welfare state in Britain in the twentieth century
I'm really struggling though.. not with research but with actually starting the study. We've been told to write a narrative of 1000 words first, and I'm really struggling with how to start it, so any help appreciated! haha.

hi, i'm doing civil rights in america too. you could try something about how much the emancipation proclamation helped civil rights but personally i'm writing about whether violence or non violence did more to help the movement. just read about malcom x and martin luther king and then some general civil rights books to give you some interpretation. i'm doing my research now and it is a little daunting, its difficult to know where to start.
hope this helps

Have you all finished your studies now? We have another month till ours is due in, its so hard to know if what you are writing will get you a good grade or not! We were allowed to pick any topic and self teach it so I'm doing mine on Anti-Semitism which is really interesting but theres very little literature on the early period (1800s)

Our question is about peace attempts and the Congress of Vienna.

Does anyone have more info. about the sources we have to use? We need at least 6 and to evaluate them separately in 500 words, but I don't know what they mean by the sources.

Are they the material we used to get information i.e. books, or are they like the sources we have to analyse in exams and stuff?

Its books, have you been taught the topic at school? Because if so surely the teacher has used books to teach you and I found the library a good place to start. You can also use websites but they need to be serious historical websites. Have you started writing it yet?

Thank you for the reply

We have been taught much of it, obviously now the teacher leaves us to write it independently though.

I have started - done 950 words so far, but not done anything regarding sources, which is the separate 500 word evaluation. I have two books from the library which I have used - will those suffice as sources and how do we analyse them?

Like "The most useful source is.... because... the text is reliable because....." etc there r some examples I think you can get them on the website?

I think it depends what grade you want as to how many books you use, but the impression I have been given is that you need more then 2 books for an A but I honestly don't know how true this is....

It is really really hard! I haven't done much either but I can already see myself being way over the word count! Actually on that note does anyone know if the word count is 3000 words + 500 word summary or 3500 words plus 500 word summary? I didn't write it down and am kicking myself now!

Are you all doing the British politics paper in the summer?
