The strengths and weaknesses in conducting the investigation and reasons why.
During the course of my research the most important thing that I thought I did was going to the library, without the library books I would have no variety, all my sources would be simply from the internet. One of my strengths I believe was the presenting of my work, I put a lot of work into the presentation and I believe it shows in my final copy. I did on the other hand get distracted while researching, after 20 minutes I would find myself playing play station or on Facebook.

I am certain that all my 7 pieces of evidence for focus question 1 are completely relevant to the background of the campaign. I consider my information to be of a high standard that answers the focus question and gives insight into the background of the Gallipoli Campaign. I think that my evidence piece A1 – the British War Council extract was my best piece for Fq1 as it showed how Winston Churchill and Lord Kitchener were involved in the making of the Gallipoli Campaign.
I reckon that people who know nothing about the Gallipoli Campaign could read my evidence for focus question 2 and have a clear understanding of what the…
