Today we dived into a process to hopefully help with the Stimulus Based multiple choice questions. Hopefully, you are starting to develop a strategy for these questions.
We then had a Type 2 and got into a reading discussed. I've attached tonight's homework
Today in class we started with a quick Chapter 30 notebook check and discussed. We then had a practice blind 15 minute DBQ period. Students filled out a preparation sheet as if they were going to write the essay. After the 15 minutes, students moved into groups to discuss the documents and their analysis.
