You could make up a quote, I guess. If you tagged it with well known historian. I wouldn't, because it'd be easier to simply reference them while discussing their ideas, rather than making up a quote.*caramel adele* said:you could probably get away with making up a quote belonging to a known historian, but dont actually make up a historian. as nwatts said the markers will be cluey as to historians.
but if you make up a quote along the lines of what you know they have said, and you use a known historian, they prob wont even kno.
i'd say no; but it's a very big can of worms. you should try to have some more 'indepth' historians, as opposed to the creators of a study guide. But if you can't find any/don't have any, and the exam is on thursday, quote excel all you like.Benno said:umm, can u qoute out of the Modern hiostory excel?

well, with a ego like that I'm glad he isn't.~V~ said:It seems a little odd refuting a 'point' made last october, but i have to for the sake of sakes... It was in this forum
Cantwell was not the senior marker for indochina!! Yes, he was in the vietnam war, did a phd on the topic, wrote the textbook and was senior marker for a number of years... but now he marks history extension! He said he cannot stand the "band two trash from whoop-whoop high"... you know, poowee style...
anyway, just had to get that off my chest for cantwells sake (hes my modern and ext. teacher )
It's not necessary. As many have said before, my teacher has also told us that while historiography is useful it is not necessary to gain a band six. He also said to paraphrase rather then quote if you have to, cos we have enough to learn as it is.Meads said:OK it is really important for me to get this cleared up now. Does historiography require us to quote from historians & texts? Like actually "QUOTE"? What I have done for two years is reference every paragraph to a historian & a text, but i have never quoted, I explain their argument.
This is an issue if I need actual quotes.
