DIRECTIONS: Write a 5 paragraph essay, along with an outline (to organize your thoughts) about something that we have learned about in Chapters 5-12. Either describe something/someone or make an argument about something that occurred (i.e. the Spanish-American War was avoidable, Businesses are/aren't destroying America, etc). Below is exactly what you need to do - please follow the directions but make this your own - full points are awarded to those who go the extra mile and show how creative you really are (i.e. not picking a topic you know a bunch of others are doing, using real world examples, and connecting the past to the present). Do great work and do not settle for mediocrity!!! Do not forget the other work that's due (Study Guide and Ch. 12 stuff - if you haven't turned it in already)!!!
Topic and Outline:
- Select a topic from Chapters 5-12 (it can be anything from those chapters)
- Write on a piece of paper and turn in (to make sure its bueno and for a easy 100)
- Once your topic is OK'd, write an outline (can be any type of outline but you can follow the example right below this). The outline is for a daily grade.
Intro: (3 bullet points)
Body 1: (3 bullet points)
Body 2: (3 bullet points)
Body 3: (3 bullet points)
Conclusion: (3 bullet points)
Write a 5 paragraph essay about your topic, using your outline to help (that's the point of writing one - organize your thoughts). We will tell you the due date tomorrow in class (and this post will be updated). If you would like to type and submit by email, that is more than OK (and preferred for Mintz's students). Do not over think this, just please get it done, and do great work!!! I cannot wait to read!
