I am really struggling with structure for the source's and essays
For the 20 mark source question for Churchill, try identify factors from the question and then highlight the sources that support these particular factors. For example if there is a question on Churchill showing poor judgement for the bombing campaign, look through the sources and put them under this factor. Do the same for the 'he did not show poor judgement.' I would not recommend doing one paragraph on source A, then another of Source B then another on source C. You want to ensure that you cross link sources, compare and contrast them using provenance. Identify limitations. In each paragraph, refer to at least 2 sources (use the sources to support each other and also identify any contradictions) and show your understanding of each source using contextual knowledge.

That was a lot of words lol. Hope this helps and if you don't understand anything that I said or if it seems unclear, feel free to ask and i'll try explain it more clearly

For the 20 marker on periods 1951-1997, identify 3 factors relating to the particular even e.g. Industrial relations in 1964(one factor is given in the question). A short intro to show the most important factor/main argument. Use PEEL paragraphs for every factor and evaluate each factor against the other-whilst explicitly showing why your factor is the most significant. Finally, a short conclusion summing up your entire argument.

Would you mind giving an example of how you'd structure a paragraph for me please? It's what I really struggle with!
