Revision Techniques AS HistoryWatch
I'm doing a source work based exam paper on Churchill and an essay based examination paper on modern history 1789-1997.
I was just wondering what revisions techniques you use? and how well they have worked for you in the past. I'm one of those people that feels the need to write EVERYTHING down from a textbook but I realise this is not possible anymore due to the massive amount of content compared to GCSE and I'm looking for alternative solutions for this.
Also if anyone is doing the same course as me, do you know of any essay structures? or any source based analysis tips and tricks or websites to have a look on? I'm really struggling with this.
Also a good essay structure technique if you struggle with it is using PEACH - which I learned in school, and will ensure you write a good essay. Basically for every paragraph you have to make a Point, Explain this further, Analyse this factor (i.e to what extent this factor was responsible for... etc whatever the question is asking, by discussing historical debate), (sub)Conclude the paragraph by returning to what the essay is asking, and ensure Historiography is used throughout the paragraph.
It's a fairly basic structure, but if you follow it, it means you have a coherent and highly structures essay.
