Project #11137 - Historical investigation

REALLY HOPE YOU CAN HELP ! 

Reasearch question : TO what extend did the Marshall Plan help prevent the spread of communism

This section is taken from the History guide (February 2001), but includes further guidance on producing the written account of the historical investigation. Regardless of the type of historical investigation chosen, every student must produce a written account consisting of the following six sections: 

A Plan of the investigation 

B Summary of evidence 

C Evaluation of sources 

D Analysis 

E Conclusion 

F List of sources 

 

A Plan of the investigation 

The plan of the investigation should include: 

• the subject of the investigation, which may be formulated as a question 

• the methods to be used in the investigation. 

This is a relatively brief but important section. A sharply focused question and a clearly structured plan will be more likely to produce a successful investigation. 

B Summary of evidence 

The summary of evidence should indicate what the student has found out from the sources he or she has used. It can be in the form of either a list or continuous prose. Any illustrations, documents, or other relevant evidence should be included in an appendix and will not be included in the word count. This section should be organized and referenced and provide evidence of thorough research. 

C Evaluation of sources 

This section of the written account should be a critical evaluation of two important sources appropriate to the investigation and should refer to their origin, purpose, value and limitation. More than two sources may be evaluated but the emphasis should be on the thorough evaluation of two sources rather than a superficial evaluation of a greater number. The two sources chosen should be appropriate for the investigation and could, for example, be written,oral or archeological. The purpose of this section is to assess the usefulness of the sources but not to describe their content or nature. 

The Written Account 

D Analysis 

The analysis should include: 

• the importance of the investigation in its historical context 

• analysis of the evidence 

• if appropriate, different interpretations. 

In this section the elements of the investigation identified in section B will be broken down into key issues/points. Consideration of historical context can add weight and perspective to the study. Where appropriate (depending on the scope of the investigation) links can be made with associated events and developments to aid understanding of the historical importance of the chosen investigation. 

E Conclusion 

The conclusion must be clearly stated and consistent with the evidence presented. This section is a follow-up to section D. It requires an answer or conclusion, based on the evidence presented, which either partially or fully addresses the question stated or implied in the investigation. F List of sources A bibliography or list of sources must be included although this will not form part of the word count.All sources, whether written or otherwise (including interviews), should be listed. A recognized method of listing sources must be used consistently throughout the investigation, for example, the Harvard author–date system. It is recommended that written sources be listed separately from non-written sources, for example, web addresses, oral interviews.
