  1. Canadian History. The NorthWest Rebellion of 1885

    They were often threatened by the Manitoban government if they refused to turn over their scrips to the land speculators, who have bought up almost all the scrips from their holders for far cheaper that the scrip was actually worth. The Metis were also upset because they had to wait for their assigned lots while white settlers newly arrived were allowed to settle anywhere. Furthermore, the government had still not given them the legal papers for their entitlement to the land they settled in.

    The first Incas settled in the Valley of Cusco and Manco Capac, which later developed into their capital, Cusco. http://www.ancient.eu/uploads/images/display-2515.jpg?v=1431031609 http://www.ancient.eu/uploads/images/display-2404.jpg?v=1431031336 http://www.ancient.eu/uploads/images/display-2320.jpg?v=1431031272 http://www.ancient.eu/uploads/images/display-2356.jpg?v=1431031308 The Incas developed extremely fast; speakers of their language Quechua became the noble class who dominated the important jobs within the Empire. Thupa Inka Yupanki (from 1471) expanded the empire by over 4000 kilometres (2500 miles). They called their empire Tawantinsuyo (?Land of the Four Quarters? / ?The Four Parts Together?); Cusco was regarded as the centre of the world, and ceques (sacred sighting lines) spread to each quarter - Chinchaysuyu (north), Antisuyu (east), Collasuyu (south), and Cuntisuyu (west).

  4. With reference to major battles, the home front, and the aftermath of the war, describe the ways in which Canada, as a nation, matured from WWI.

    In the 1900's, a woman's job was simply to remain at home. A woman on an average day would cook, clean, take care of the children and ensure the wellbeing of her home. Her husband would return from work ? receiving his wage, which would in turn go to his household and he would spend a comfortable evening with his family. However this dramatically changed when Britain had declared war against Germany; women in Canada had eventually replaced the men?s positions ? as well as successfully keeping their own.

  5. Australias modern justice system and its application of the law has been the result of evolutionary foundations laid by justice and law in Medieval England

    Many of these crimes were mainly applicable for serfs (none for the king) and were also based on superstitions created by the church to maintain control of society- crimes such as witchcraft and heresy. Some of these crimes are no longer present today in our community as society is much more liberal and laws are no longer based around superstitions. Instead, these crimes were replaced after the scientific revolution in the 1800?s by more technology related crimes that did not exist earlier due to the lack of technology. These crimes range from traffic crimes like drink driving and speeding, along with a growing amount of Internet piracy, financial fraud, smuggling and possession of illegal firearms.

  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?
  • William was successful at Hastings because of his leadership of the Normans.(TM) To what extent do you agree?

    "In conclusion, although William was a brilliant leader of the Normans his leadership was not the most important reason the Normans defeated the English at Hastings. It is true that he was a brilliant leader but I think that the most important reason was that the English were completely exhausted from the days of fighting and marching prior to the battle. This factor is the most important because the English were just not ready for another huge battle in the space of a few weeks. The Normans had been ready and rested for months so they had a huge advantage over the exhausted English. The other reasons did play a part in the defeat I think that if the English did not have to fight off Hardrada first, they would have beaten William. The Normans did have the cavalry and Harolds tactics were poor but the cavalry were largely ineffective against the English line until Haralds tactics came into play with his inability to control his men meant that the English came off the hill and so the cavalry found it easy to pick them off. Overall the most important reason was because the English were completely exhausted."

  • In 1815 the possibility of a united Italy was slight(TM) to what extent do you agree with this?

    "From the information I have gathered I conclude that I agree with the statement to a certain extent but not entirely. There are many reasons that the chance of a United Italy are slight and these reasons generally outweigh the arguments that its not. Most of the arguments against the statement also only hinder the arguments for it rather than exclude them completely. However even with this I fell that the way in which many of the states were run, soon enough the people would look to push for a United Italy as it would definitely be in their own personal interests."

  • Apartheid - To what extent did the statement in the novel Cry the Beloved Country,

    "Conclusion The aim of this research is to investigate the reasons for the implementation of Apartheid and to find out the effects of the implementation on the whites and the blacks in South Africa. In the process of investigating the sources, I discovered that some sources were rather one-sided. I also realised that some of the present work, especially the websites, have rather incomplete information on Apartheid, thus allowing my work to further expand on. Apartheid is a discrimination system in which whites are legalised to discriminate against the blacks therefore it is important to study this system to prevent it from appearing around the globe."
