                         Section A: Part 1


• Section A- Part 1 (Extended Response)
  – AOS1 Revolutionary ideas, leaders and events
  – 20 marks – 10 marks per question
  – 5-10 minutes per response= total 15 minutes
    [3:15-3:30] – you should be writing 1-2
    structured paragraphs
  – Before writing
     • Read the question carefully.
     • Determine what the question is asking. Underlining key words
       will help.
     • Identify the key elements you will be expected to address
                                           Section A: Part 1
• Section A- Part 1 (Extended Response)
   – Structure - 1-2 long paragraphs – use TEEL
       • Write a topic sentence that:
           – answers the question directly (ensure that it communicates an idea, not a fact)
           – does not repeat the question (paraphrase or reword it)
           – allows you to expand your point using detailed knowledge and evidence
       • Explanation and Evidence
           – Write a relevant (to the point) answer. Do not write a narrative, you are not re-telling the story;
             you must make sure you answer the question –
           – usually asks for the significance of an idea, leader, movement or event.
           – Stay within the timeframe of the AOS (eg. France 1781 to August 4. 1789)
           – Remember: the weight of the question (how much it’s worth and the number of lines allowed for
             a response indicates approximately how many points need to be made in your answer and how
             much content is necessary.
           – All points made must be supported by relevant evidence - quotations, revolutionary slogans,
             dates, events, names, places, laws, policies, etc. as evidence to support your points.
           – Historiography is not necessary, but historians’ interpretations can be used as evidence to support
             your points.
           – Link points by using words such as however, similarly, in contrast, consequently, firstly, secondly
             and so on.
       • Link
           – Remember to always link back to the question at the end of each paragraph.
           – Eg. This information demonstrates the significance of...
                                Section A: Part 2

• Section A- Part 2 ( Source Analysis)
  – AOS2 – Creating a new society
  – 20 marks in total
  – 30 minutes [3:30-4:00] – 3-4 questions (3 types of questions)
  – No rules – could be visual or written, could primary or
    secondary
  – Comprehension Questions – 1-2 questions/4 marks
      – These questions require you to work at a lower skill level (they are easy,
        so don’t be tricked) – they ask ‘what’, ‘list’, ‘name’, ‘identify’, etc.
      – Avoid using the question in your responses: try to get straight to the
        answer – dot points are fine.
      – Your answer must be drawn directly from the source, do not include
        any further understandings for these answers.
      – It is ok to quote directly from the source, but where possible, try to use
        your own words - this demonstrates a stronger understanding.
                              Section A: Part 2
• Section A- Part 2 ( Source Analysis)
    – Knowledge Question – 1 question/6 marks
        – Use strong topic sentence, which answers the questions directly and succinctly,
          before you elaborate with evidence.
        – This asks you to draw on your own knowledge, as well as the
          extract/representation.
        – You must quote/paraphrase/refer to the source – you should be using this as
          evidence to support your answer, eg. “as mentioned in the extract...”
    – Historiography Question – 1 question/10 marks
        – This is where you are required to assess the reliability of the source.
        – Read the question carefully to determine what aspect of the document you are
          required to address.
        – You need to evaluate the document carefully: assess what is there and what is not
          there.
        – Make comparisons between this source and other sources relating to the same
          period/event/ideology
        – A discussion of historiography is required in this response – discuss whether or not
          the document supports the view of specific historians or historical schools.
        – Use quotes from historians as evidence or examples of ideas that contradict the
          ideas in the source.
