    Can some people help me with the technique and structure for the questions tomorrow. Preferably the 6, 8, 10 and 15 mark questions.
    well for the 8 marker its always a how useful are these source questions i'll break down the structure to get the 7-8 mark band

    Firstly start with a two line intro mentioning that both sources are useful to some extent ..
    Then start with any source and mention it Content origin and purpose and how this affects its reliability the purpose may be to educate in one of them and to persuade in the other make sure you are aware of the bias and unbias sources. mention the date and its significance i.e source A was written along time after the events therefore this is more likey to be more reliable and useful and most importantly who wrote the source and what was their main intention?
    do this for both sources and make sure to give an overall judgement on

    Use source C and your own knowledge - 6 marks

    source C suggests... (give 2 points)
    From my own knowledge... (give 3/4 points)

    How useful are sources D and E... - 8 marks ( i think)

    Intro: both sources are useful
    Source D...Content, origin, purpose, judgement --> this is where you use evaluative words such as ''more/less useful because..''
    Source E...Content, origin, purpose, judgement --> this is where you use evaluative words such as ''more/less useful because..''
    concluncsion: overall, which souce is more/less useful? why?

    why was source F produced - 6 marks
    1.Source F was produced by...
    2.Source F shows...
    3.It was produced because at this time... context is very important in this question
    repeat 2 and 3 two more times, which makes it 3 fully explained points for 6 marks

    Evidence question - 10 marks

    intro: answer the question briefly stating how far you agree with the interpretation
    Evidence 1 - does it agree with the interpretation? Content, origin, purpose. Evaluative judgement again ''more/less valid''
    Evidence 2 - does it agree with the interpretation? Content, origin, purpose. Evaluative judgement again ''more/less valid''
    Evidence 3 - does it agree with the interpretation? Content, origin, purpose. Evaluative judgement again ''more/less valid''
    conclusion: which evidence is most valid? why? answer the question, how far do you agree? and use the evidence you've analysed

    last question - 15 marks

    2 sided answers
    intro: use the wording in the question e.g ''some people benefitted from nazis germany, but some didn't''
    some people who benefitted from nazis were... why? include detail and facts
    some people who didnt benefitted from the nazis were...why? include detail and facts
    conclusion: answer the question and reinstate those people who did benefit and those who did not.

    there are some other questions like describe and what do these sources suggests, but im assuming you know those because they're straight forward

    I think for the 15 marker, you talk about one side and then the other

    In a past paper i did, it asked, "Was the Depression the main reason for the Nazi rise to power in 1933?"

    I talked about the Depression and how it exploited the weakness of the Weimar Republic and their coalition government.
    On the other side, i talked about von Papen persuading Hindenberg to form the Nazi-Nationalist party. I then also talked about the Enabling Act and what that did.

    But according to the mark scheme, you could've also talked about Hitler's character (he's a good orator), the use of the SA and how the Nazi party had weak opposition in the Reichstag - the German parliament

    would you use an equal amount of points on both sides of the argument or would you make one point supporting the statement and then several against?

    Thanks man, but for the 15 mark question, would you use an equal amount of points on both sides of the argument or would you make one point supporting the statement and then several against?

    i think it's better to use an equal amount of points. it's just that for me, in this case, i found it hard to come up with points for the Depression

    Well, that's because Hitler became Chancellor before the Enabling Act was passed (he was Chancellor in January 1933, the Enabling Act was March 1933). So I don't think you could mention that!

    2012 - was life on war front hard for people?
    2013 - did nazis improve peoples life between 1933 - 1939?
    2014 - was life on homefront always hard for germans?
    2015 - was depression main reason why nazis got into power in 1933?

    3 questions on changing life section, last year was on consolidation...i have a feeling it could be something on why nazis lost the war or a repeat of 2015 question just slightly different
