Re: History Extension...

I was always fooked for this dumb subject.
I havent even studied, I'm just resigned to my fate :headbang:

Dont make the mistake that if you like or are good at ancient or modern history - that you will like or be good at extension.:mad1: Its the worst subject ever.
I shall look at the paper and "GWA?!":eek:
Its bull.

wow, possibly the easiest thing ive done

the questions were straight forward. question one they told u that it was about aims and purposes u didnt even have to extract it from the source, which made it easier, and the source was straightforward. the second question was the most broad thing i have ever seen, so u could pretty much talk about any historical debate and get away with it. for those who are asking what fish has to do with anything, ever heard of a metaphor?? ill let those people ponder on this for a moment....

Re: wow, possibly the easiest thing ive done

ur sir, are a knob. the biggest discriminating in history extension is your ability to include and incorporate the source. if you dont use it, and the fact you're boasting about it, means you're in trouble

Re: wow, possibly the easiest thing ive done

It is defiantly unanimous.
Seriously though, I thought it was pretty alright, do I go and make a knobby post about it, No. There's no need to make yourself feel better by putting others down, afterall it would be pretty ammusing to read an entire essay about Carr and fish! (I'd give them marks for originality lol)

Re: wow, possibly the easiest thing ive done

calling it the easiest thing ever lil bit of overstatement. thought it was ok. could only squeeze in one paragraph of jenkins :( ...not sure if i therefore contrasted enough, ah well. 2nd part was alright, just talked bout selective usuage of facts n evidence and wat evers convienent to historian. all in all - alright exam

Re: It's over! atleast for me >_>

source 1 was tough, i couldnt pick up on her main purpose in mass detail...i tried to engage in the idea of empiricism through her quote as an objective analysis with history as a science...hope this works. section 2 wasnt too bad. i didnt find the fish metaphor to ambiguous but in saying that i didnt make as many good points as i probably should have... are you supposed to engage in the source in section 2 as much as you are in section 1?

Re: wow, possibly the easiest thing ive done

i hope i did the right thing by sayin she had a view of history's purpose as being empirical but oath did that have to be the worst name to have to refer to...clendillen, clendellen...wtf?!? i give up

Re: It's over! atleast for me >_>

i'm done suckers.

it was better than 04 (section 1) but i have to say that might be the most discriminating section 2 thus far because of the multiple nuances (i.e. people say subjectivity when COME ON its more about how facts aren't "historical facts" until the historian uses them or that there is a "prcoess of attrition" before the past is recorded as facts - its in what is history? pg 12-13).

also section 1 i said the woman was a socialist can that be inferred :/ ?
