What's the best way to remember dates for AS History?

  • 0 votes

I'm doing AS history, church and state under the tudors, and the build up to the American civil war. I've got my essay technique pretty much sorted, but I can't get enough contextual knowledge in and I keep making silly misinterpretations and mistakes because I can't remember dates. The thing is, they're both pretty long periods of history and there are a lot of similar-titled laws, congress meetings, parliament meetings, etc, so it's scarily easy to get confused.

What do you think is the best way to revise and remember key dates?

I find that the best way to remember key dates, is either make up a rhyme for them related to the event that occurred within that time period, or to simply do the most boring thing ever and try and write out a timeline. Constantly rewriting this timeline will be a lot of work, and extremely boring I can assure you, but the more times you either write it or maybe just read it over and over, the more it will stick in your head. I done it for my Health and Medicine and Sport and Leisure History GCSE and it helped me. Best of luck to you!
