A2 Unit 4 – Coursework ideas – 100 year coverage

Posted on Updated on

Examples
o To what extent did popular rebellions pose a serious threat to the Tudor monarchy in the years 1485 to 1603?

 
o How far did the strength of the Ottoman Empire in the 16th century depend on the ability of individual sultans?

 

Questions might be directed to a narrow period but invite contrasts and comparisons over the broader 100+ year context. In such enquiries, while there would be a strong focus on the identified period, students would be able to reflect back to what had gone before and forward to other developments that occurred.
 
Examples
o Within the context of the period 1750 to 1850, how serious was the danger of a revolution occurring in Britain in the years 1789 to 1822?

 
o Within the context of the years 1815 to 1917, to what extent did the emancipation of the serfs by Alexander II in 1861 create more problems than it solved?

 
o Within the context of the period 1848 to 1948, how far is it true to say that most European powers adopted imperialist policies in the years 1871 to 1914?
