“Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.” -MLK . . . Don’t just think of MLK as a famous American hero loved by the nation. It’s only now that he has a national holiday (and some people still don’t like him). It’s important to remember how disliked he was by so many Americans, and how unpopular his views were in his time. And this was not very long ago. Not at all. Those who are vilified and demonized today for standing up for what is right may be the heroes of tomorrow. Depends how it all goes down. Just don’t forget to broaden your perspective. Sit back to look at the whole timeline. The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice. #MLKDay #DrKing #KeepDreaming #KeepFighting
#NHS Thank you guys so much for the birthday wishes! I especially appreciated the not one but TWO references to #PewPewPew (seems it still resonates years later) and the observation that I am both hyper and caring, which I consider a most honorable description. Cheers! 🏹 🏹 🏹

Solid example of how to use #synthesis to score the elusive final point on the AP rubric. This was from a DBQ essay on #IndenturedServitude, and this student, having finished addressing the thesis in relation to the documents on the assigned topic, added at the end a connection to a different place and time where there was also a system of semi-free labor not far off from slavery — the #encomienda system in the 16th century Spanish colonies in the Americas. This works because it doesn’t interrupt the main focus of the essay by coming at the end, and because it doesn’t come out of nowhere but rather is woven into the context of the main essay topic, and explicitly linked to that topic and the key points of the thesis argument being presented. There are other ways to earn that point, but synthesis is the most clear and objective.
