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?
  • Analyse two posters produced during the two world wars. Discuss the impact of propaganda on its intended audience and how this is achieved.

    "In conclusion I think that both poster hold very similar propagandistic techniques and because of this they both result in apiece of propaganda. I think if I was a British woman in the era of the World War One and Two I would have been very effected by the two posters in very different ways. I think that the people who saw these posters would of reacted as if it was a family member in the poster and would have been drawn to the poster in this way. I don't think that the government would of wanted this to be the reaction of the British people and would have done anything in their will to stop propaganda getting around the country in this era. 1/4"

  • Outline and assess the contributions made by the NUWSS and the WSPU to the achievement of votes for women in 1918.

    "From the evidence and written accounts I have come across, I come to the conclusion that the suffrage campaign fought by the WSPU and the NUWSS played a large part in winning the vote, but the massive effort of women as a whole during the war was what ultimately won them the vote. I also believe that the vote would have been given to women without the suffrage campaign, or the war effort, later perhaps than it was given, due to changes in attitudes and the evolution of the human race."

  • To what extent was splendid isolation(TM) the most important factor of British foreign policy between 1902 and 1939?

    "So, in conclusion, although 'splendid isolation' was a small part of Britain's foreign policy, it is possible to say that it never actually existed, as it was never an official policy, and more of a collection of policies that would have appeared to be 'splendid isolation' to the rest of the world. However Britain never stuck strictly to this, always interfering in order to preserve both the balance of power and the state of her own economy and empire, even when this mean going to war with Germany."
