Possible Essay Questions for Unit 3: Transformations America from 1940 to the 21st Century

 

 

General Tips

When you read, you identify significant and representative events. When you write, you select from those significant and representative events. You are not writing every fact in the textbook.

You can identify information about significant and representative events that you need to read about carefully by:

  Using the index at the back of the textbook with the general words in the question

  Using the quiz questions for this Unit to find specific words to use in the index at the back of the textbook

If those two things are not enough, I will provide tips to resources or to specific locations in the textbook. For examples, look at the tips for the possible choices for question 2 at the bottom of this webpage.

Possible Choices You Will Have for Question 1

The narrow strip will include two of these to choose from. You write on about the significant and representative events for either one of those choices. You are not writing every fact in the textbook; you are selecting significant and representative events.
