What was going on at the time.Comment: what does the source suggest about the event/person– use quotes as evidence.Challenge: Then use own knowledge to say whether thisimpression is correct. If not explain why they have this view(Bias/time/purpose etc)Whether (and how far) a source is useful for anenquiry.Content: takes quotes from source/features from image - 2 oftheseContext: refer to when it was made, by whom, is there anexpected bias? What was going on at the time.Comment: is the source useful/does it tell you about the event,person or time? If the information is incorrect, try and explainwhy (Bias/time/purpose etc)Remember: all sources are useful in some way!

What was going on at the time.Comment: what is the source trying to suggest about the time,person or event? (use features of the source to explain how youhave come to this conclusion)use own knowledge to help explainwhat the creator is referring to.What the purpose of a source is/ why was thissource produced?Are you surprised by the source?In this type of question you need to explain why a source wasmade.The crucial thing here is not to stop at explaining the message ofthe source. Make sure you go on and explain its purpose. Inother words, what impact was it designed to have on people’sthoughts or actions.Content: takes quotes from source/features from image - 2 oftheseContext: refer to when it was made, by whom, is there anexpected bias?

If it does then look at bias, time,purpose of source)
  3. 3. How similar are these two sources are.Does source X prove that source Y is wrong?Which of the sources gives a more accurate viewof….?In this type of question you need to use specific evidence toprove that the sources are similar and then explain how theyalso differ.Content: takes quotes from source/features from image - 1 oftheseContext: refer to when it was made, by whom, is there anexpected bias? What was going on at the time.Comment: what does the source suggestDo the same for the other sourceCompare: do the sources suggest the same things or differentthings? (Often some bits will be the same and some bits will bedifferent) Use quotes from sources to prove your point. ThenSay which own is the correct view using your own knowledge toexplainContent: takes quotes from source/features from image - 2 oftheseContext: refer to when it was made, by whom, is there anexpected bias? What was going on at the time.Comment: what does source X suggest?Do the same for the other sourceCompare: explain how the two sources are different/similar –then refer to which one is more accurate/believable (use Ownknowledge and also look at the bias, purpose, time of the twosources)Content: takes quotes from source/features from image - 1 oftheseContext: refer to when it was made, by whom, is there anexpected bias? What was going on at the time.Comment:what does the source suggest?
  4. 4. Do the same for the second sourceCompare: which source is more accurate – use own knowledge toprove this. Then say why one is not accurate (look at bias, purpose, ortime)How far the sources support a particular viewpointor opinion.This is a two-sided mini essay. You need to write at least fourparagraphs:1. A brief introduction.2. A paragraph which explain which sources support thestatement, using evidence from the sources to provethis (at least two sources needed).3. A paragraph explaining which sources disagree withthe statement, using evidence from the sources toprove this (at least 2 sources needed).4. A conclusion in which you say overall do majorityagree/disagree with statement. Then decide whether ornot you agree with the statement. Use your ownknowledge and the sources to support you argument –look at which sources are more reliable/biased.
