Sources for part A of Edexcel history coursework watch

    • Thread Starter

    (A-level btw)

    I'm a bit confused about these sources. I know they have to be contempory, but how long should each source be?

    I mean, they could just literally be one line or a few words, right?

    Because usually when people only quote a line in their essay, so is one line (from a speech for example) suitable to be a source on its own, or does the source have to be chunk or paragraph of something?

    This is also where I'm confused about sources and evidence. Speechs, interviews or anything else contempory could be used as source and evidence, so I'm not confused where the line is between sources and evidence. (evidence counts as a source? )
