Can someone show me a good History Paper 2 essay? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have a history paper 2 test next Friday on Mao. My teacher said the essays I write simply state facts and have limited evaluation.
    Well, the thing is she never taught me how to evaluate. Can someone please show me a good History essay for Paper 2 that can score 17+?

    Also, how do you answer "to what extent" questions? Last time I wrote an essay on to what extent is containment a success. My thesis was "It was a success because it helped Korea from falling to Communism; it can also be regarded as a failure because it failed to contain Communism in Cuba and Vietnam." I really feel that this is a weak thesis statement. Can someone please help me?

    Thank you.
