Today's class focused on the type of work that needs to be done in order to effectively analyze turning points in history through the Periodization Long Essay format.
We started by working on an outline of the time period 1850-1950. You must make sure you have a basic understanding of chronology (when stuff happened). This is vital in order to be able to make connections across different historical events. This is the type of work you will be expected to do on the AP exam. Hopefully, today's activity was helpful. I've included a picture of the board as it looked at the end of class today.
The reading for tonight is 797-803.
