Hi everyone, I am researching for my history EE, and I am having troubles with finding the evidence for an event. The event consists in a conversation between the king and Mussolini, which is mentioned in multiple books but without any reference to a primary source, but always to other secondary sources (other historians' books ) or no reference at all. My supervisor was bemoaning this, however it seems fair that there is no "transcript" of a private conversation. Is it common\acceptable? How can I back this event better? Thank you in advance
Source evaluation in the history EE?
h0rr0rsh0w posted a topic in Extended EssaySo I'm having some trouble with my EE. The topic, evidence, and my analysis are all fine, I just have more of a question about structure. I've been looking at example history EEs, and I never see anyone evaluate sources. The EE rubric is pretty vague about what exactly is needed, so I didn't know whether anybody knew whether its acceptable to add a source evaluation section to the EE. Thanks guys!
Source evaluation in history EE
Sofia. posted a topic in Extended EssayHi! Do I need to evaluate all my sources in a history EE? Or just a selected few? And is it preferable to do so in a separate paragraph, or in the text? Thanks very much for any responses!
Which kind of sources to use for the EE
Luka Petrovic posted a topic in Extended EssayI'm currently researching for my EE. My supervisor told me to look for "scholarly" books, journals and publications. I'm having difficulty figuring out what is scholarly, what is not. Some are obviously tabloid type, but the difficulty comes in journalism, and books written by journalists. Can anyone shed some light on this? Or suggest a resource that i could access for free on the internet?
