opinionated history essays?

Recommended Posts

Ok so from what I'v read about EEs they are not just supposed to be a summary of a bunch of sources, but they should have an argument that you are personally invested in? When my advisor read my history essay he said that it has too much of my opinion in it and that I should try to make it more subjective, but I am really confused as to whether he is right or whether I should leave in my opinions because that is what IB wants? I have't used the word I in my essay, I just kind of make it clear which sources and opinion I believe in. Advice please?

As long as your sources support your arguments (that is your argument, not their argument), you should be fine. Obviously if your interpretation of the event is very unorthodox, you are taking a big risk. However, based on what you have said, that's not what you've done. In other words, I think you're fine.
