Elements of Writing an IB History Essay

Introduction:

Grabber (or Hook) (Optional) for IB History you can get right to the thesis

Background: 2-3 sentences (NO MORE) set the tone of why, when, and where

Restate the Question (define key terms if necessary)

Thesis: what your paper is going to prove; an opinion that will be proven; this must answer the question

Roadmap: the path your paper will take; usually 3 reasons that support your thesis.

Body Paragraph #1:

Baby Thesis: This should match Roadmap Topic #1 (from Intro), now create a mini topic sentence for this paragraph. This is your argument (or opinion) which this paragraph will now prove.

Evidence: (with Citations) this is the proof that supports your claim, info, data, facts, short quotes, paraphrasing, supporting documents, outside knowledge you bring (from your brain).

Argument: Analyze the evidence and hook it back into your baby thesis statement. Tell your reader what the link is (don’t assume it’s obvious), explain the evidence and how it proves your point.

Body Paragraph #2:

Repeat the same process as #1

Body Paragraph #3:

Repeat the same process as #1

Conclusion:

Restate the thesis in a fresh way

You can use an “although” statement but do not detract from your own argument and do not introduce new evidence here.

You can explain why the original thesis question is still important today.

Elements of Answering an IB History Essay

History is not chapter by chapter, unit by unit.

It is a continuous process of cause and effect.

The results of one war spill into the causes of the next.

It is important to see connections, understand patterns, and analyze the reasons these events occurred.

Steps to Answering an IB History Question:

Do you understand the question? What is it asking? Can you clarify?

Do you understand the documents (if you are doing a DBQ).

Can you group the documents, or the ideas, into categories (buckets)?

Can you support those categories with evidence (from documents or from your own knowledge)? Make the claim, then back it up
