Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific Study Help forum should help get responses.

I'm going to quote in Puddles the Monkey now so she can move your thread to the right place if it's needed. :yy:

I'm hoping for native americans as well and I want women to come up. Do you have any predictions of what the questions could be?

For this exam, the grade boundaries don't really change dramatically for some reason. For last year:
A- 86/120
B-78/120
C-70/120
These are for raw marks

For turning point essays, do turning point need to be a single event or can they be a series of events/ a small period? E.g. the presidency of Lyndon Johnson was a turning point for AA rights, skillfully exploiting the end of the conservative coalition in congress to pass the 1964 & 1965 acts etc...

We weren't taught women, we had to do it ourselves so I didn't!! Native Americans is my fav, I'm also hoping for trade unions.

Any examples over the period for how internal divisions limited trade union and labour rights development?

CIO breaking away from the AFL in 1937 because the AFL was still very focused on craft unions - caused divisions but their merger in 1955 to form the AFL-CIO actually ended up creating more solidarity as it represented 85% of the unionised workforce
Racist attitudes of many unions refusing to admit African American workers - led to the creation of the CBTU in 1972 because they weren't properly represented but they were affiliated with AFL-CIO so perhaps not a dramatic division
Women weren't permitted into any early unions apart from the KOL but they were virtually destroyed after the Haymarket Affair in 1886, had to form their own unions like the WTUL in 1903 who wanted legislation to introduce an eight-hour day and a minimum wage causing clashes with the AFL who opposed legislation and instead favoured union negotiation
Unskilled migrant workforce of the 1980s were not interested in unions and were prepared to work for lower wages which exacerbated divisions in both unions and between workers that stemmed from the start of the course - unions refused them admittance despite immigrants dominating the semi/unskilled workforce weakening the position of unions (this also applied to African Americans)

Hope this helps
