Change of plans for today. I intended to review the Revolutionary Way today, but decided to hand out the American Independence DBQ from the 2017 exam. Last night, I created American Independence Thesis Statements and a graphic organizer American Independence DBQ Graphic Organizer.
I spent a lot of time analyzing the 4 thesis statements. The first 3 are samples provided by the College Board and the 4th one I created on my own. As a class, we reviewed the thesis statements and students were required to explain why the statement did or did not receive credit. (For the record the 1st and 3rd got credit, the 2nd and 4th did not.)
Once we reviewed the thesis statements, I passed out the DBQ and graphic organizer. As a class, we reviewed the first two documents, discussed their message, and completed each aspect of HIPP. I know they are required to only do one, but I wanted to review all four for the first two.
Tomorrow, we have PSAT registration during class and most of the students will be registering. For Thursday, students will complete the rest of the graphic organizer.
Have a good night!
