History

Yr11 into Yr12 Transition Project

Welcome to A-Level History

The suffrage debate

As part of our British module for A-Level we look at the suffrage debate, with a special focus on ‘Votes for Women’. For your project we would like you to look at the points of view of 4 different historians and then complete the activities below:

Link

Why do historians have different views of the suffrage movement?

Questions:

Q: Read through the extract from each historian. Identify and highlight key words or phrases that are being used to describe the suffragettes, the suffragists or both.

Q: Try to sum up the argument of each historian in a single sentence.

Q: Use your own knowledge to identify pieces of evidence that you think support the argument being made by your historian.

Challenge

Your challenge is to try to work out how the provenance of their work influences their interpretations of the suffrage movement.

  • Why have some of these historians used the same pieces of evidence in very different ways? How might the focus of their work have influenced what evidence they engaged with?
  • How might their wider experience and research interests have affected their interpretation of the suffrage movement?
  • How might the specific context of the work the extract was from have influenced their interpretations?

 

Enjoy,

Mrs Murphy and Mrs Scott
