Higher History assignment - how to research

  1. 1. How to carry out your research • Break your research down into each of your factors (at least four) • Make a note of your source: e.g. John Lewis Gaddes, ‘The Cold War’, 2005 Andrew Marr, ‘History of Britain’ DVD • Write down relevant notes. Either take short notes or summarise in your own words.
  2. 2. QUESTION EXAMPLE To what extent were the Suffragettes’ actions the main factor in helping women gain the right to vote? CORRECT AND RELEVANT SOURCE FACT “Jad Adams, in the book ‘Women and the Vote’, says the Suffragettes used various tactics such as attacking police officers, arson and vandalism.” CORRECT BUT NOT RELEVANT SOURCE FACT “In her book ‘Votes for Women’, Paula Bartley says that the proper name for the Suffragettes was the Women’s Social and Political Union.”
  3. 3. Suggested sources • Books • Magazine articles • Documentaries • Internet articles • Newspapers • Letters • Interviews • Diaries • Visits/field trips Idea Use Google Scholar to research your topic. This gives links to numerous books, magazines articles and academic journals.
