In short: QUALITY not QUANTITY!!!!!Thanks for the reply. Now, for the quotes. My modern teacher told us to neglect quotes, historians and historiograpy and focus more on content and its analysis. However here i see most students actually pay a lot of attention to historians and their thoughts. So do i have to incorporate quotes in my responses if i want to get a high mark? Im aiming for a band 5 at least.
With modern, you need to build on your facts with analysis - as the analysis usually makes up the majority of your essay. Also, structuring your answer will help you create a longer response, as it allows you to better build on certain ideas as opposed to just regurgitating information and fact in a single heap on the page.[QUOTE.The recommended limit is 1000 words (8 pages). Going off the marks allocated, you should spend 400 words on A and 600 on B.
8 pages is alot bro, i could probably do like 2 max 4ish, im not much of a bs artist that keeps writing thing, i cramp up the facts in little detail which i cant expand because i will go out of the topic :O, can u tell me strategies that can get u up to 8 pages?
My teacher says that historiography is no longer in the marking criteria for national study. Is this true? Don't need to mention at all?Remember that the subject is hiSTORY = there is a story to be told and then analsyed. A lot of poorer responses from bright kids concentrate on historiography but don't bother telling the story e.g. can name all the historians who wrote about Germany between the wars and can rattle of pages of quotes from them but don't actually tell what happened and therefore what these historians are writing about.
If you get a question on the rise of the Nazis from 1929 - 1933 - it is a good idea to tell what happened in that time and analyse as you go e.g. the fall of the Papen government = tell the story and then what the historians say about that event and then link it to the next event.
Whilst its not expressely mentioned, I think some references to historians and their views is still required - however, I am not 100% sure. I think I will defer to cem for a more decisive answer.My teacher says that historiography is no longer in the marking criteria for national study. Is this true? Don't need to mention at all?
I don't understand why you would not include it. Anyway, the rubrics (since 2010) are:My teacher says that historiography is no longer in the marking criteria for national study. Is this true? Don't need to mention at all?
For an exam essay 5 or 6 paragraphs is roughly what you should be aiming for (intro, conclusion plus 3 or 4 points). Generally speaking, there are no hard and fast rules with paragraph length, but I would say you shouldnt be writing a paragraph longer than 300-350 words in your response.How many body paragraphs would you recommend? I wrote 3 body paragraphs for my trails (1 for each point of argument) and each paragraph generally took up 1-2 pages, and my teacher wrote that I should reduce paragraph length
