SL History IA topic
MVC posted a topic in General DiscussionHELP! I find Che Guevara to be one of the most interesting figures in the Latin American history, and I would like to focus my Internal Assesment on him. The history department at my school did a trip to Cuba this year (which I got the opportunity to go to). In Cuba I got to know the stories behind Castro, the Revolution and Che in much more detail and a completely different perspective. I bought the biography of Che written by Fidel Castro himself, which I believe is a good (very biased) source for my IA. However, I am having difficulties to find a good question for it. I don't know what to
History EE: Chilean Coup and/or Chile under Pinochet
vmaddo posted a topic in Extended EssayHi, I know I'm starting my EE late (rough draft is due this Friday ) (I'm fine not having my draft turned in on time, I write fast and I write research papers pretty well once I know what I'm doing) and I'm having trouble narrowing down a research question.

They still see Cuba as a non-democratic nation and do not support the Castro regime. - This
Hi, So I was just wondering if counterarguments are required or merely suggested in EE's, specifically for history? My EE is a compare/contrast essay of why Che Guevara's revolutionary efforts were successful in Cuba but a failure in Bolivia. So would this require a counterargument? i.e he was unsuccessful in Cuba yet successful in Bolivia? Because that would be quite difficult to argue...
US-Latin American relations (early 20th century)
Essay helpSo I've been assigned a comparison paper on two Latin American independence movements. I have chosen the Brazilian and Mexican independence movements. Basically, the conceptual areas this paper needs to address are (not necessarily in this order): background information on the movement, causes which led to the movement (bit redundant there, but those are my teacher's words, not mine...), outcome of the movement, and which of the two revolutionary movements was most successful in terms of its original rationale and/or purpose. With this in mind, I was hoping to get some advice on the structurin
