Today we REALLY began our class. We kicked things off with how to do a DBQ, and even began working on our first DBQ. I created this PowerPoint, and gave you this rubric. It occurs to me that it is possible that you might need a bit of review. I remember when I was a high school student, and there were times when I would understand concepts while in class, but I would completely forget everything when I got home. So, here are some videos made by Tom Richey on how he interprets the new rubric. He get's a little crazy and Lord of the Ringsy with it, but they're still pretty good.
Also, don't forget that I moved the Chapter 12 quiz on the Renaissance to Friday. There are resources on the site to help you (I'm still waiting on some of them), but also check out AP Euro Bit by Bit on Paul Sargent's Youtube channel obviously, only a few of the videos on the playlist apply. I would recommend reading chapter 12/studying your notes to pull in outside information into your DBQ, and to get you ready for the quiz over continuing document analysis.
Until next time,
