This video is a tutorial on how to analyse and evaluate historical sources using The WIRE Method. The WIRE Method is a paragraph structure that is based on the History skills of AVARA's V9 of the national syllabus. The tutorial unpacks each stage of the structure/skills and contains three examples from the Ancient Egypt, Deep Time History of Australia and Japan under the Shoguns units.
