I am currently studying about Spain and the New world and as work we have been set the question:
Write a narrative account analysing the key events of 1491-92 that led to Columbus sighting land in the New World in October 1492. (8 marks)
I don't really know how to set this question out as I am not use to writing narratives in History. Any ideas on how to set it out?

A narrative is a description. Usually 2 paragraphs, or 1 long extended paragraph.

I'm guessing that this is a narrative. First start with point,evidence,explanation. Next link it to the next point you will introduce. Repeat point,evidence and explanation and then link it to sources from your own knowledge. Then you will ring forth your final point,evidence and explanation and then link it referring back to the question concluding your points. Avoid becoming vague or plain with answers and just stating facts. The markers are interested in seeing how you flow your narrative and the varied historical vocabulary/sophisticated points you incorporate. Try researching narrative layouts and attempt using them your self. Remember the more practice the more progress there is to come. I also am a history student and structuring my writing can be quite challenging too.
