America 1920's:
1) Wall Street Crash source 1928 (4 marks)

- Such as:
1. Music eg Jazz
2. Dances such as the Black bottom became popular
3. Cinema/theatre

3) Quota Act/ Immigration source 1921 (10 marks + 3 SPaG)
-You had to mention that it was the Quota Act (as it didn't specify this) and why this was introduced.
- Any other interpreations from the source such as America were racist etc.
- Explain the idea of the source and how this represents American attitudes eg the Quota Act and limiting immigrants
- Explain or show knowledge of the provenance and how this is useful or not.
Useful= From an american so its an american viewpoint. Etc.

You can't have an unofficial mark scheme for History tbh. It's subjective, there are certain points you can include definitely, but it's a writing subject so there's a wide range of responses.

Wall Street Crash USA 1930s

8 marker:

New Deal was opposed due to the fact it was ....
• temporary
• WW2 much more helpful in ending Depression
• did not help people who were poor before the Depression
• Roosevelt tried to cut back on gov. spending later on, unemployment figure rose to 10 million

12 marker:

AGREE:
• Hoover believed in ‘rugged individualism’ (poor fend for themselves)
• New Deal helped more than Hoover (mention Alphabet Agencies for top marks e.g. AAA, CCC, PWA)
• WW2 helped more than Hoover
• Only tried to help last minute


DISAGREE:
• Hoover Dam built along Colorado River
• Emergency Relief Act ($300 million)
• Soup Kitchens
• Hawley-Smoot Tariff

And give a conclusion

For the 8mark question? I'm not 100% sure of that question as the topic is new to the syllabus and isn't in many text books.

Is it possible to have said that businesses were against it due to the new deal introducing the trade union to workers, and how republicans opposed it as it gave the government power?. (this is for the 8 marker by the way)

I put that, as well as some of the alphabet agencies not helping ethnic minorities therefore they opposed parts of the new deal
