Anyone else in the process of doing their AQA history coursework right now?!
Covering the Supreme Court's role in the black American civil rights struggle. I'm in need of a bit of help on how to structure the essay: it seems that the only way to do it is chronologically as the Court gets more liberal as time goes on but i'm desperately trying to avoid that! Does anyone have any ideas?

I'm doing this at the moment too, just getting into the reading and planning at the moment mainly (mine's on the Spanish Inquisition). I don't really think it matters that much if you structure your essay chronologically, as long as you make sure at every point you're analysing and referencing historical viewpoints, historians, key figures etc. Broadly, I'm going to split my time period into three and then focus on each of the three sections in turn - I think it's quite a good way of making sure you cover the 100 year period. Probably a good idea to identify a few really key events and do a lot of analysis on them. I think the key is making sure you're not merely narrating, but you probably know this already!

I'm doing the supreme courts role in black civil rights as well ! Quick question when we put in the historical interpretation into the argument, do we analyse it in the essay, or leave it til the source evaluation ?

When you're structuring the essay, I was told rather than chronologically to focus on key themes so 'social, economical, political...'. I'm also doing Civil Rights.
I would recommend as well analysing the interpretation in the essay as well as source evaluation in order to build your argument.

Hi,

I know this is super old but I was wondering if you possibly still had your historical enquiry about the Spanish Inquisition. I am looking for a model answer which will help me see how mine should be structured and and make it more themed instead of telling a story! I know your comment was posted 4 years ago but somehow im still hoping that you may have it somewhere saved!!!

So sorry for the bother!

Thank you in advance
