Transcript of "Source Questions Help"

  1. 1. SAUCY QUESTIONS ?! REVISION – How to answer source questions!
  2. 2. Types of Source questions 1. Extract – Where you simply have to say what is in the source. 2. Accuracy/Utility– You need to say how truthful a source is: content/origin/purpose . 3. Conclusions: Use the sources to debate a particular issue. 4. Purpose – You need to say why the source was written and who for. 5. Compare/ Difference – This might be to your own knowledge or to anther source.
  3. 3. Spot the question type! For each of these questions work out what type of question it is (they are alongside to remind you): QUESTIONS 1) What does source A tell us about the reasons why Britain went to war in 1914? (3 marks) • Extract 2) Why was the poster in source O distributed in Britain in 1915? Use information Source O and your own knowledge to answer the question (6 marks) 3) How Accurate is the view in Source F of Hitler’s aims of foreign policy? • Accuracy / Explain your answer by referring to the purpose of the source as well as Utility using its content and your own knowledge. (6 marks) 4) How useful is Source P to an historian studying the Western front in WW1? Use Source P and your own knowledge. (6 marks) • Conclusions 5) How does the content of Source C and D differ? (6 marks) • Purpose 6) Do you agree with the interpretation given in Source K about the life of Black Americans in the 1920s? Explain your answer by referring to the • Comparison / purpose of the source as well as using its content and your own knowledge. (10 marks) Similarity
  4. 4. The Five Ws As soon as you get any sources you should do the following to each of them (write on the question paper):  WHO – Who wrote the source (nationality)  WHEN – When was the source written? (Primary or Secondary?)  WHAT – What is the source (textbook, letter, speech?)  WHY – Why was it written? (Purpose of the Source)  WHERE – Where does the source fit into what you know? Does it agree with what you know or is it bias?
  5. 5. SAMPLE QUESTION Question How useful is Source A to an historian studying the causes of World War 2? Use Source A and your own knowledge. (6 marks) Start with the five W! Then write your answer (for six marks you should be aiming for about ½ to ¾ of a side in 6-7 minutes!  ALWAYS use a quote/ facts from the Sources.  ALWAYS use your own knowledge/ FACTS - esp. when it says ‘use your own knowledge’  ATBQ (= 'answer the bloody Source A – A political cartoon appearing in a British question') newspaper of 1935 during the Ethiopian Crisis. The man lifting the lid to the world is the Italian dictator Mussolini.
  6. 6. How the examiner marks it! Level 1: EITHER Accepts the content of the source at face value OR Generalised or learned response which could apply to any source (1-2) Level 2: EITHER Simple comments on the usefulness or the limitations of the source based on information in the source and/or own knowledge OR Simple comments on the usefulness or the limitations of the source in terms of provenance or reliability or bias (NB – Use 5 th mark for answers that attempt several aspects - usefulness, limitations, own knowledge – but at undeveloped level) ( 3-5) Level 3: Develops an argument about the usefulness/limitations of the source using the source and/or own knowledge (6-7)
