    Political Ambassador
    My teacher who is off for most of the time due to an illness so we already had 4 different teachers supplying us (they are history qualified though) but this new teacher is confusing me so much. We have course work, he tells us how to answer a source question and the template he gives us made me write about 1 side of paper for each source. there's 5 source i needed, including intro and conclusion, he marked my first draft and was like well done well done. then i said how come they're recommending that i write about 800 words, and he said the worst is they would knock half the marks off... why on earth did he tell me that even after he had proof read my draft!!! because intro + 5 sources + conclusion is WAY over 800 words. i wrote 10 sides!

    Then there's this person in the other history class who writes 5 lines for each source and apparently got full marks when marked by his teacher, and there i was spending one week to write up a novel for 5 sources.
