Discuss the topic with reference to the period 1890-1914.
Before writing, decide where you think the best answer lies. To make your argument as strong as possible, try pushing your answer towards one end of a line- point A. If the evidence makes this seem inappropriate, try pushing your answer in the other direction- point B. You may also find the argument the strongest in the middle of both.
In a sentence or two, explain the historical issue you are addressing.
Second, assuming you have settled on a position between points A and B but closer to B, explain the claims made for point A and what value they have.
Third, end the paragraph by explaining in a single sentence where along the line you believe the best answer lies and very briefly why.
If the point A merits an explanation, do so. If not, explain why not. Now you can focus on the points that justify your position close(r) to B. Build clear, wel developed arguments.
