this is for history
Cross referencing for GCSE :
-Know what you are cross referencing using the 5W`S (who/what/when/where/why/how)
-Look at the two sources you have examined and List the simmilarities/differences briefly
- When explaining about a source in a paragraph it should NOT be like this (e.g.1) :
e.g1 . Two large chunks of paragraph and a bit of cross refereeing
i.e. Source A shows......
Both souce A and B show that....blah blah blah
It should follow a structure like this in One paragraph (you need to be coherent/concise/to the point...no point waffling on because you are wasting valueable time!)
Source A shows that...... Simmilarly source B also gives a similar idea that...... Both sources exemplify/shows us/point out that .....
This is the structure i followed for GCSE and got an A*
see where they agree and disagree
look at the time they were written - this may influence their opinions
see who wrote them - their background might influence this
