A - Set out your plan. State what you will examine, e.g Hitler's policy of Nazi co -ordination... Also state factors that you will not cover e.g The use of Gestapo..
B - Summary of Evidence. Use about 6 different sources. Merely quote everything RELEVANT to your investigation here. Make sure you organise it chronologically or themetically. E.g in 1991 ... then in 1992... or Hitler's Foreign Policy... Then Hitler's Economic Policy...
C - Evaluation of sources. This must be specific unlike the evaluation we do in paper 1. Do some research on the authors.. are they experts? Any they biased? They they have full access to archives ? Did they take advantage of this access? Is the sources specfically relevant to your topic ?
D - Anaylsis of evidence from section b. You must use references in this section. Arrange your ideas in terms of known historical intrepretations. E.g this evidence suggests that stalin's skill were the reason he won the power struggle... Wheereas..this evidence suggests it was Lenin's weaknessess..
E - Conclusion.. make sure this is balanced and your state your conclusion clearly ... obv. give reasons..
F - Self explanatory really..
