I have yet another homework question for my Unit 2 study, which is Weimar and it's Challenges (1918 - 1933). My most recent question is: With reference to the sources and your understanding of the historical context, assess the value of these three sources to an historian studying the Weimar foreign policy of Gustav Stresemann [30].

My teacher's given us a guide for how to answer Questions 1 and 2 as well as a guide on source analysis, and I have referred to them yet I'm only getting Band 3/4 out of 6. She says this is good as Band 4 seems to be the class majority, and she says some pupils only start reaching Band 4 months into the spec (around March) so the fact we're getting Band 4 in the Autumn Term is excellent. But I really want to hit Band 5 at the least so I can actually feel good about m marks for once. I know I sound like one of those people who cry about 99℅ UMS but that's not the case; I had a B at GCSE History which I was pleased with. I'm just aiming high for AS.

I've got a few booklets with notes about the content we're covering but only a few pages about Gustav Stresemann. And I'm really clueless as to what to write. If someone could comment some links or give me a Band 5 exemplar answer for the same question (not to pass off as my own, to refer to when writing mine), that would be very much appreciated. Thanks ever so much in advance.

Is it a past paper question? I had a similar question in May in the AS exam. When it comes to Stresemann's foreign policy you always need to consider the concepts of Good German and Good European. He was a good German because of the League of Nations, the settlement of the border with France (to an extent) etc, and a good European because of the settlement with France and for all the various reasons you probably know. I think the difference between band 4 and 5 is to do with your structure and how you're making your points. It could also be that you're not developing your arguments thoroughly enough?
I hope you get your band 5!!!
