However, he tailored his speeches to suit his audience. In Westport he urged tenants "to keep a firm grip on your homesteads". Pamell used tactics like moral intimidation, which included mass attendance at elections and boycotting. In Ennis he told farmers to treat evicting landlords like "lepers of old". Through this Parnell gained widespread support for the Home Rule party. Parnell gained even more support when there was an article published in the English Times titling "Parnell and crime".
It said that Parnell was aware of the murders. Always time yourself. If time is short, use bullet points. The best advice I can give right now is to remain calm. There is ample time to master the history course if you plan your study well and constantly practise questions from the past papers — it will pay off come exam time.
Sources can be primary or secondary or a combination of both. Topics that I have examined contained a variety of sources — diaries, official documents, letters, recorded interviews, books, DVDs, radio broadcasts and archaeological reports — depending on the nature of the research topic. Using Sources Your choice of sources is important — some sources can be more time-consuming than others but the work using these sources will be more original and rewarding.
Students often fall down on timing in the exam. Practice by doing questions under timed conditions. As you get closer to the exam you should sit an entire exam paper using the full 2 hours and 50 minutes so that you are well prepared for what you will experience on the day. The secret to scoring well is to hit the criteria on the scheme. Like English. If anything, they should replace Irish with History as a core subject.
I just want to stress that before I continue… That paper was an absolute bitch. Right after coming up once LAST year. What possible sense does that make? It makes no sense! There are hundreds of better, more interesting, more anticipated topics, and you pick the boring one TWICE? The document question is one of a possible three. It is essential that all three are given equal study time as there is no guarantee what the question will be. Try and learn a few quotes for each one from another source as it will impress the examiner.
Try to get the document done in about 40 minutes, this gives you some breathing room.
Ask your teacher to review it frequently. I left out an entire essay for my mocks, so this time I was very strict. Following this the party split into 2 groups the Parnellites and the anti-Parnellites. The internet can be helpful here — the bibliographies provided by articles on sites such as Wikipedia can point you in the right direction.
Like English. Also, I would suggest that you work closely with your History teacher — ask advice on the authenticity of your chosen sources and whether they are suitable to your topic. Make a revision plan deciding on what topics you intend covering include case studies, key concepts and key individuals.
Pamell vindicated himself and gained even more support. The History syllabus stipulates that you should pick a topic that is not covered on your course, so it is wise to avoid the Key Personalities and the Case Studies that you are studying this year.
When he entered politics, he joined the obstructionist party.
