Book Description

10 Sep 2013 0956087361 978-0956087362 annotated edition
How to write an IB History Essay: The Safe Hands Approach is for students studying IB History at either Higher or Standard Levels, at any point in the course. The Safe Hands Approach is a series of simple, effective techniques that are guaranteed to improve your essay writing. This book is all about skills and their application: it doesn't matter which period or topics you are studying, the principles outlined in the book will apply to you. The book is collaborative: a teacher explains the techniques and an IB student provides both insight as to how the approach helps and annotated sample work. Your essay writing confidence and ability will improve if you adopt the Safe Hands Approach. "The approach gives you a way of safely knowing that, given any question, you can write a solid, convincing, and ultimately successful IB History essay." (Lorenzo Brewer, IB History Student) Joe Thomas studied History at Oxford as an undergraduate and has spent the last thirteen years in education including almost a decade's worth of experience in the IB as teacher, coordinator and examiner. He has an MA in History from the University of Oxford, an MA with distinction in Creative Writing and Literature, is a PhD researcher at the University of London, and runs an academic consultancy. Lorenzo Brewer studied with Joe for eight months in the lead up to his IB examinations in 2013. He achieved a 7 in History at Higher Level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank God... 26 Dec 2013

Had a massive freak out about history this year. It was really scary, but this book really helped for my mocks in December and just generally. My teacher started using it in class because she said how they structure the essay layout is so good. Would definitely recommend it to anyone studying the subject, it gives a map for every essay and the sample essays give you an idea of how to aplly it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book! A Total Life saver... 22 Dec 2013
By FatimaT
This book is exactly what I have been looking for for so long. It explains how to write the history essays step by step, making everything easy to understand talks about structure and evidence. If you're struggling to get better at writing your essays just use this. My teacher recommended it and said I should read the introduction first (which you can read on the website) [...] ... After that I bought it.... The whole thing was so useful, if you are an IB student and struggling with the ridiculously hard Higher or Standard History course buy this, you won't regret it...
