How did you get sources for the 100 years coursework (I'm doing AQA)?

My question, paraphrased, is judging 4 kings. Lastly, what third source (must be a different type of source) did you use (like memoirs or shakespeare plays)?

but how do they show differing historical interpretations? that's what we use the sources for

edit: as in the historian's (person who wrote the source) interpretation

So you pick 2 which deliberately show a contrast in interpretation of events. You'd have to do some digging to find them but if you can't then the point that you make is that there is no difference in interpretation which means that... etc.

which means that... what exactly does no difference mean?

how are you going to use the rebel's demands (differences between them or lack of?)

You've got to infer. It's history. So if all rebel's demands are the same that would imply that there are direct grievances amongst the entire population of the commons against Tudor govt. If there are differences, that would imply that different groups of people in each rebellion e.g. clergy and noblement have different,personal grievances with the govt.

I thought we are using a historian interpretations, like the collapse of tsardom example essay did? like 2 historians who have conflicting views, and then different type of source from someone else about the topic.

I mean 2 books on the issue, like why the tsardom collapsed

also are you doing AQA?

Right, you're confusing me now. Yeah, I'm doing AQA.
For the NEA you must write about 2 historians' interpretations on your line of argument and then use at least 3 primary source materials throughout your essay to enhance your argument, and then state how those sources fit in with the interpretations of the historians.
