I am currently doing OCR modern world History B and I was just wondering if anyone has a list of sources for the Treaty of Versailles, League of Nations and Road to War. Thanks I just want to be as prepared as I can for my upcoming exams! :blush:
Also could anyone tell me How to answer the different source questions that come up in the Germany depth Study, for example; How far, why poister was published, does this prove... :)

There is no 'list of sources' - you have to be ready for anything.
The key is to know how to answer the different kinds of question from ANY source.

Why published:
EXPLAIN the source’s intention/purpose.
TAKE INTO ACCOUNT the author and his standpoint.
RELATE IT TO what was happening at the time.



Does this prove?
EVALUATE the source’s message - does it support the idea?
TAKE INTO ACCOUNT the author and his standpoint.
Say HOW TYPICAL IT IS of what was happening at the time.



How far does it/do they support?
CONTENT: identify the sources or points which support the idea.
ORIGIN: if the author is trustworthy, then this helps to confirm the assertion he is making.
CONTEXT: do the assertions in the source match what you know?

CONTENT: identify the sources or points which contradict the idea.
ORIGIN: if the author is trustworthy, then this helps to confirm the assertion he is making.
CONTEXT: do the assertions in the source match what you know?

CONCLUSION: write a paragraph saying which side is right and why.




Look in your textbook to find different sources, and practice writing sourcework answers to these questions using any source you can find in your textbook.
