Im doing ocr history at as level and I've been told by my teacher that if I want to get from a B to an A all I have to do is introduce historical context to my essays.
I have absolutely no idea what this means my only guess is to include attitudes of people during the period we are studying.

Does anyone know what is meant by historical context at as and how Im supposed to apply it to an essay?

I should think it means relating your ideas/points specifically to the time period you're writing about linking the issues to attitudes of different people/groups at the time, the economic climate, ideas/discoveries of the time, the religion/politics of the country.I don't know though

Imagine the events being study as a play. The historical context is the stage. So the background events and influences that have an impact on the event.
