    Hii, This might sound like a silly question but what do I do for my history coursework (besides a 2000 word essay) and how?

    Assuming you can write about anything, what about history intrigues you the most? The problem with history is you have the entirety of human civilisation to pick from.
    Choose a time period eg 1800s and research events that happened.
    Or you could do an essay on an ongoing social issue eg how society has moved towards gender /racial equality from the 1800s/ 1950s
    Or modern history like Vietnam/Cold War.

    A tip is to watch some episodes of horrible histories and see what era sparks some interest and research that. Otherwise only you can really make that decision

    Oh I'm so sorry, the general topic is the Reichstag Fire in 1923.

    Maybe who started it? You can make a case for Hitler, but also the possibly biased evidence that it was communists and all that. Or how it impacted the war and actions of Nazi Germany etc
