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

 

 

How Do the 2 Essays Work Your Test in Class?

The 2 essays work this way.

         You write 2 essays on the exam that ends the Unit. You can prepare because you see all of the possible questions below.

         When you actually take the exam essays, I provide a pile of narrow strips of paper with choices for each of those essays so each of you see different tests. When you finish your objective test, you hand it in to me and pick up the top strip from the pile. You can write on either one of the choices.

How Are Essays Graded?
