Sorry for the late post, guys! I had to cover a class during my planning period and then had a meeting after school, so this is the first chance I’ve had to put up this post.
Tonight for homework, please complete the DBQ Essay Worksheet, using the prompt and documents from the Olympic DBQ which you received in class. This assignment will be due at the start of class tomorrow, and you can expect it to take you a fair amount of time to complete. (The first AP-style DBQ is always difficult to put together; I promise it will get much, much easier with practice.)
If you missed our discussion of how to write a DBQ, or if you want to review the process or receive some extra help on the subject, please check the Document-Based Question page under the Essay Writing Resources tab on this page. You’ll find a number of instructional videos and additional downloads which may help to clarify the process. It would also be a good idea to come and talk to me to clear up any questions you have on the process before next Monday– we’ll be writing our first full DBQ at the start of class on February 29th.
Additionally, remember that you need to budget time during the remainder of the week to complete quiz corrections on the Unit Three reading quiz. And– THIS IS IMPORTANT– I goofed on when I told you they would be due! I think I told all three classes that your corrections would be due on Tuesday, March 1st (the day of our next test). However, my policy is to give you five class days to complete corrections, which would mean that corrections should be due on the second of March, not the first! Sorry about that, guys. I’ll address my mistake tomorrow in class.
