A2 OCR History Synoptic PaperWatch
I was just wondering if anyone had any model answers of a synoptic history essay, as I'm struggling to get my head around how to structure these things. And by model, I mean ideally about grade B or above (although I'm that desperate I'll take anything that's regarded as 'synoptic').
Would love you forever.
Edit: Also, just so you know, I'm studying Tudor Rebellions (but again, not fussed).
Your second approach is more along the right lines:
A paragraph should follow a PEE/PAE structure
Point-Major cause of rebellion
Evidence/Analysis: why this was a major cause of rebellion
Explanation: Example of a major rebellion caused by this factor
Historical interpretation: a quote from a historian to support this
