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......

Source B.......

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 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

what history are you doing?
