    about a very specific time the declaration of
  • When war was declared in 1914 the people of
    Australia responded in many different ways. There
    was bipartisan support by the government.
    Opposition leader Andrew Fisher said that
    Australia would fight to the last man and the
    last shilling. The community responded
    similarly, there were celebrations in the streets
    and in the first two months 27,000 men signed up
    for service from NSW and Victoria alone. However,
    some Australians opposed Australia going to war
    as they believed in pacifism, others expressed
    the opinion that it was not our bloody war.

    ruins, through blasted and fire-swept cities,
    across scorched plains, until we drive the enemy
    into the sea.

Section D Essay
  • You MUST chose ONE essay question only.
  • You have a choice from 5.
  • Your essay will require you to draw upon your own
    knowledge of one or more topics studied this
  • You MUST provide some form of CONTENTION. This is
    an overall argument.
  • You are expected to use evidence and examples to
    support your response.
  • You should aim to make 3 - 4 points in your
  • Your essay should be about 250 - 500 words.

  • 1. Australian involvement in WWI was a unifying
    experience for all Australians.
  • To what extent do you agree?
  • The first thing you must do is develop your own
    opinion. This can be most easily achieved by
    turning the statement into a question. Ie. Was
    Australias experience in WWI unifying for all
  • For a more difficult questions you will need to
    underline the key words and the limiting
    statements. Ie. Australian involvement in WWI was
    a unifying experience for all Australians.
  • Once you have decided what you think then you
    must take 2 - 3 mins to plan your argument.

  • Eg. It was unifying for white men, but not for
    women, or foreigners.
  • Because a) ANZAC legend brought men
    together. It was a sign of
  • manliness if you fought for your country,
    however some men were pacifists and didnt want
    to fight others had other priorities.
  • b) Women were seen as fragile and could only be
    nurses. They had to wait at home for the boys to
  • c) Foreigners were feared by Australians and were
    under strict surveillance as stated in the War
    Precautions Act. German Australians in particular
    were persecuted. They were spat on, beaten up and
    locked up in internment camps.
  • From here you need to construct an introduction
    and write the body paragraphs of your essay.
    Dont forget your conclusion.
  • REMEMBER that your argument MUST be clear and
    that the more you use evidence to support your
    argument the better. This will get you the best
    possible marks.

  • Have a healthy lunch before your exam. Nuts,
    grain bread fruit (?) lollies, energy drinks (?)
  • Have a good nights sleep Sunday.
  • Have a bottle of water with you.
  • Have at least 3 pens (black or blue)
  • Liquid paper is a waste of time. Cross it out and
    write else where.
  • Read ALL instructions carefully. If you misread
    the question you miswrite the answer.
  • Make sure you attempt ALL questions (particularly
    document questions)
