I am unsure on how to do a plan for my OCR History Coursework. HELP! Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I was instructed by my history teacher to make a plan for my coursework: Assess the significance of the Montgomery Bus Boycott in the push for civil rights in the USA. I always do well in my exams and get A and B's but I have no idea what to do for a plan... I am so worried that this will drag my grade down to a C or even a D... How do I make a plan, please!

    P.S. I am with OCR.

    Coursework should be easier for you becayse you have time to think and plan.

    You just need to understand the subject- do a timeline and the sequence of events, appreciate how they all relate to each other.

    Look at the bus boycott and examinw what followed and how influential it was to everything else. Was it important or were there other things in Civil rights that were more significant? QWatch some tv programmes or films, then you cna get an appreciation for events. Your plan of research at the moment is just understanding events.
