    Which Essays Are You Learning? + My Teacher's Predictions Vilandas_6368

    My teacher managed to predict my JC essays extremely well, hoping she can do well again.

    Topic 3: Irish History

    Consolidation of Democracy

    Anglo-Irish Relations

    Anglo-Irish Treaty -> Civil War

    Pรกdraig Pearse

    Topic 5: Irish History

    Apprentice Boys Of Derry

    Coleraine University Controversy

    Civil Rights

    Anglo-Irish Agreement

    Topic 4: European History

    Sovietisation of Eastern Europe

    Hungarian Uprising

    Cold War 1945-1992

    Marriage/Family/Role Of Women/ Mass Media

    Anybody else focusing on those topics? Which essays will you be learning? If you have any comments that were made by your teachers surrounding Topic's 3,4 and 5 I'd appreciate it if you'd let me know what they recommended! Cheers.

      Anything for Ireland Topic 2 or USA???

    2. avatar image


      What I've mentioned above is all that we are preparing ourselves for. Didn't do USA at all in our course.

      what does consolidation of democracy mean

    4. avatar image


      What actions were taken to ensure the survival of democracy in Ireland.

      Yeah, what if she is completely wrong, that will not be to good for you

      Well it's not like you can learn the entire course that'd be impossible. I've about a 1300 words essay for the 12 titles mentioned above. Hopefully on the day I'll be able to find a similar question and manipulate the answer to suit the new question.

      Weird. They are the exact essays our teacher told us. Although she also said to learn Origins of the Cold War.

      Thats kind of great to hear Jamie. Hopefully they're right!

      Civil war are the ones I'm planning to focus on. Especially Colraine cause my teacher thinks it might come up

    11. avatar image


      Would you be paying particular attention to these, but also studying other topics too?

    12. avatar image


      She also said Michael Collins' contribution ls to Irish affairs because he hasn't came up in years.

      @Katea Well in our school we are only focusing on these. Now it is possible that none of them will come up and we will just have to give our best at trying to come up with something based on our general knowledge but having all 12 of those learned gives you a high a chance of at least 1 coming up from each topic.

      @Jamie Will take a look at that as well, cheers pal.

      hey do you think the welfare state for NI would be unlikely to come up? reallllly hoping for that

    15. avatar image


      That's not something that we have prepared, but I have seen that thrown around a bunch on here so maybe.

    16. avatar image


      Does anyone by any chance have sample essays for the consolidation of democracy or anglo-irish relations? My teacher only bothered to get us the case study book for last year, so it has nothing on either of those topics!

      Does anybody have any predictions for USA?

    25. avatar image


      I'm seriously hoping for Lyndon Johnson and his involvement in the Vietnam war.

    26. avatar image

      Chloe Hennigar

      ^ yes or Montgomery bus boycott!!

    27. avatar image


      Yes ^but I dunno because it came up last year ๐Ÿ˜ญ Would love the question about the treaty being controversial

    28. avatar image


      Hey ya

    29. avatar image


      Hi would you be able to email me the essay on anglo-irish relations? To if you wouldnt mind?

    30. avatar image


      Montgomery came up last year so it's not particularly due. Same with the US foreign policy essays including Korea, Berlin, Vietnam etc. Learn Vietnam, Causes and Consequences of US involvement in Vietnam, Johnson and Vietnam as well as Johnson Key Personality to cover you for that portion, and for Civil Rights know the general civil rights struggle essay and MLK Key Personality essay and that should really cover you for the USA topic

      Can you send the anglo-irish Relations to me aswell. And anything you have on Ireland topic 2/3. Thanks very much

      sound! :)

    32. avatar image


      What time frame would anyone be looking at for Anglo-Irish relations??

    33. avatar image


      I'd say 1922-1949 because they may ask just Dev, but sometimes they ask you to compare them under Cosgrave and Dev
