Hey everyone.

Just been nosing on the OCR Interchange and the new questions are out for next year! They seem interesting!

In case anyone doesn't have access they are as follows:


Task 1: The Role of the Individual in History - How important was individual X compared to impersonal factor Y in Z?


Task 2: A Thematic Study in Twentieth Century History - Did changes in X happen at the same rate over the period Y?


Task 3: A Modern World Study - Why has X become such an important issue in the last Y years?


Task 4: A Study in Depth - Why was there X between Y and Z during the period A?


Happy Easter!

Just had another look on interchange. They have suggested as an example for role of individual ' How important were the personal qualities of Hitler compared to the Depression in the Nazis coming to power in 1933'

Please help -really stuck for Germany 1919-1939 - Have sent off a few ideas to OCR nothing back yet - but all seem very vague and not clear (mostly pre 1932) I worry are very weak students will struggle again this year - seems CA does not help the less able and it makes history more for the so called bright students which I personally dislike.

Why can't they just send out suggestions...?

I like the tension theme, however I am not sure there is enough scope by just concentrating on young people. Also, was there much tension, didn't the majority of youth enjoy their status, Hitler Youth etc?

How about sticking with the same one we did this year and presenting it to OCR as "our own" idea? Is this permitted?

Hummmmm - gut reaction brainstorm:

How about:

Task 3: A Modern World Study - Why has terrorism become such an important issue in the last 10 years?


Task 4: A Study in Depth - Why was there an increase in intolerance between the German people and the Jews during the period 1918 - 1938?


Not too sure about Task 4 - Quite like the one about the role of the individual, te depressiona nd teh rise of Hitler.

Kind Regards

Hi all - I did terrorism as a study in depth last year and am going to do what Roy just suggested - do the moidern world study - why has terrorism become such an important issue. Seems like I will be collecting articles on Bin Laden for a while! Does anyone know if you have to get approval for the question every year?
Thanks
