Question one. - inferences from a source - 6 marks
- Go beyond the obvious clues and explain what you can learn, but still back up with reference to the source
- Stick to the focus of the question (don't waste time saying the source is reliable etc. - you won't get any marks for it here!)
- Try to stick to one paragraph only
- Practice by highlighting words or phrases which suggest inferences as you read a source ( if its a visual source, draw lines out from the details which you can use)
- Try writing the inference and then support it with a word or phrase from the source.
- Remember you need to make two supported inferences to achieve full marks!
Question two - portrayal (source analysis) - 8 marks
- Go beyond the obvious clues and explain how the artist/writer is aiming to create a certain impression - by what they put in and by how they describe it - certain words, colours or expressions.
- Revise the two types of this question
Question 3 - cross-referencing sources - 10 marks
- Compare what is being said in the sources and reach a judgement as to how far they are saying the same thing (similarities)
- Show support on how far they agree with each…
