History IA Help!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys

So when my history teacher went through the draft of my history IA, in section C, he said to remove the paragraphs on the limitations of the sources. But according to the IB history guide, section C is marked on origin, value, purpose and limitation so I'm not too confident with my teacher's recommendation. Any thoughts?

Also, is it safe to say that considering our own teachers mark our IAs (with only a few moderated), it would be better to just do what our teachers say regardless? 

Thank you!

I involved limitation in mine, but it may be different for SL, I wouldn't be able to say. Generally, you should listen to your teacher, but perhaps it's because he wants you to write a coherent passage under "value" which contains both - so that you use connectors such as "in contrast", "however" and the like, which I could follow in terms of it showing a more advanced form of analysis.

Bear in mind that in most cases, your teacher will grade your IA, only a few are sent off to be moderated externally. However, you should definitely discuss limitations (Ditteee said it well!) Good luck!
