We are about to undertake the controlled assessment process for AQA History B focusing on either Britain at War or the British People at War. We have put together a group of sources on D Day for the actual source utility assessment and will practise source analysis with other primary and secondary exemplars. I have in mind a checklist of criteria along the lines of Nature (what type of source is it? Speech? Diary entry? Cartoon? How does this affect its utility?) Origin (date of publication / was the author in a position to comment etc) and Typicality (is the source supported by the pupil's own knowledge and other sources?) Reliability (stressing that unreliable sources are still useful)and Content (what does the source say?). Have I left anything out?

There must be other departments about to embark on this after half-term or early next term. How are other schools tackling it? What plans, if any, do you have to use the Research Diary component?
