Integrating Sources into a Source-based Essay

Welcome to the Integrating Sources into a Source-based Essay for the IB DP History Paper 1 Examination lesson plan! This lesson explores effectively integrating sources into a source-based essay, focusing on the IB Diploma History examination.

To begin the lesson, students will be given a PowerPoint presentation that includes tips on integrating sources into a source-based essay. The presentation will also include an example of a source-based essay and an essay plan that students can use as a guide when constructing their own essays. Students will learn the importance of understanding the historical context of the sources, evaluating the reliability and usefulness of sources, and how to integrate them into their essays in a clear and logical manner.

After the presentation, students will watch a short video that goes in-depth on each tip presented in the PowerPoint. Students will be encouraged to take notes throughout the video to help them when they construct their own source-based essays.

The video will cover important topics such as recognising bias in sources, identifying the purpose of the source, and how to use sources to support their argument. It will also review the key elements of a source-based essay, including the introduction, the body and the conclusion.

The IB Diploma History examination requires students to construct a source-based essay, which can be challenging for many students. This lesson will provide students with the necessary skills and knowledge to effectively integrate sources into their essay, and to present a well-argued and well-supported essay.

Throughout the lesson, students will learn how to evaluate sources, how to integrate them into their essay, and how to present their arguments in a clear and logical manner. By the end of the lesson, students will be well-prepared to write a source-based essay for the IB Diploma History examination, and will be able to confidently integrate sources into their essay. This will help them to score well in their examination and be well-prepared for their future studies.
