History is the study of past events and the impact they had on people and societies. Historians examine and analyse documents and sources left behind by those who were there at the time to try and find out exactly what went on. As well as increasing these skills of source analysis you'll be developing those of interpretation, evaluation and writing. Youll pick up and develop a sense of empathy (what was it really like to be in that place at that time?), and some valuable critical thinking skills (is this source trustworthy?).

By its very nature History A level requires specific writing techniques and Marked by Teachers has many thousands of essay examples which will aid your study and equip you with the skills required.

You'll cover a wide range of historical themes and issues from both national and international perspectives. History is a fascinating and challenging subject and the skill base you will build is an ideal preparation to study it as a degree course or for courses in any of therelated Humanities subjects, as well as Philosophy and Law.


Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • To what extent was WW2 the most significant turning point for civil rights

    "In conclusion we can see that WW2 was certainly not the most successful period for the civil rights movement as that mantle can probably be taken up by the events of the 1960's but it did mark a momentous turning point in the social acceptance of African Americans and even though by matter of convenience forced integration of blacks into the everyday life of America. It turned the movement in the right direction it needed to go in order for the events of the 1960's to take place. However, my personal feeling is actually that the most significant turning point overall was the Reconstruction period of 1965 to 1877. This period was by no means a massive success in reality as we have learnt that little actually changed, but if it was not for slaves being granted their freedom after the end of the civil war then none of the following advancements could even have been possible. It was this somewhat rather unassuming nudge than ignited the eventual movement that would bring about the practical changes of racial equality in the USA."

  • Evaluate The Presidency Of Theodore Roosevelt.

    "In conclusion, although Roosevelt did not deal with some of the issues which arose during his presidency, and did make a major political mistake, I think that his presidency can still be viewed as effective and successful. The great achievements Roosevelt made in the areas he did deal effectively deal with, I think, far out-weigh the negative aspects of his presidency. 2,192 words"

  • Assess the significance of the role of individuals in reducing racial discrimination in the USA throughout the period 1877-1981.

    "In conclusion, in the period of 1877-1981 individuals were the most significant in reducing racial discrimination. Early activists such as Washington and Du Bois had little opportunity to reduce discrimination due to the widespread discrimination and the likes of the KKK, however, events such as WWII enabled activists to emerge, as attitudes towards African Americans had began to change. Using the ideologies of previous activists the most important individual King was able to use events such as the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the likes of television to share his speeches and views, helping to pass legislation, change attitudes and give black Americans the confidence to further the civil rights movement. King helped to convey the on-going discrimination problem in the USA towards the government, which enabled presidents to take action with the likes of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 which brought about further equality for blacks. Although towards the latter stages of the movement the government had more effect on reducing racial discrimination by passing legislation."
