11 Question 5: How far do you agree with this interpretation? (16 marks) Timing: 25 minutesStructure:Create an essay with 4 sections-Introduction, support for interpretation, disagree with interpretation, conclusionFocus:You need to create a very clear two sided argument with focus on CK.Use of evidence:Use source detail to support contextual knowledgeFor L6 (15-16 marks)- You need to included detailed CK with support from a range of sourcesSPAG: 3 marks: For 3 marks use correct spellings, follow grammar and punctuation rules.
