Rewriting the DBQ & Thematic Essays

writingapaperSalvete my little scribes!

Today in class I returned to you your already-graded Unit 3 Thematic Essays, covered in my feedback, along with a Rewriting Guide. I also returned to you your not-yet-graded Unit 4 DBQ Essays, along with a Peer Editing Guide, and after clarifying some misunderstandings about citation, I gave you time in class to peer edit each others essays. A busy day indeed!

Your homework for this weekend is as follows. First, you should SELF EDIT your DBQ Essay, even though it has already been peer edited, just make sure your peer didn’t miss anything important. Then, you must rewrite AT LEAST ONE of the two essays. The choice is yours.

Keep in mind that EVERYONE must resubmit the DBQ Essay because it has not yet been graded, and ALMOST EVERYONE should resubmit the Thematic Essay, but I will not require it of those who got in the 90s and don’t feel it is necessary. Since most of you will be rewriting both, I will only require ONE of the two to be turned in THIS MONDAY, but the other will be required no later than TUESDAY 1/20. I recommend trying to get both done this weekend if you can. Below you can find all the necessary resources. Feel free to email me at pcasey@maspethhighschool.org with any questions!

Use your critical thinking when people in power call for war. They will use every trick in the book to convince you that war is a good idea. They will say it’s necessary. They will demonize “the other”. They will straight up lie to you. They will call those who disagree traitors who disrespect the troops. They will insist that you agree in the name of patriotism. They might say it will be quick and easy and that the people there actually want us to do it. If you need an example, look back to what was said about going into Iraq. Remember the billions of tax dollars that will be lost. Remember the lives that will be destroyed. Remember our shared humanity.
Neville Chamberlain and Adolf Hitler: When our face-to-face intuition fails us... badly. @malcolmgladwell discusses his new book Talking To Strangers as it relates to History.
On #ThisDayInHistory December 27, 537, the first religious services were held in the newly built #HagiaSophia. Built under the reign of #Byzantine Emperor #Justinian, it was once the #GreekOrthodox Christian patriarchal cathedral, briefly a #RomanCatholic cathedral, later an #Ottoman imperial mosque, and now a museum (Ayasofya Müzesi) in #Istanbul, #Turkey, formerly known as #Constantinople. Built in AD 537 before the Middle Ages, it was famous in particular for its massive dome. It was the world's largest building and an engineering marvel of its time. It is considered the epitome of Byzantine architecture and is said to have "changed the history of #architecture". You can see both the #Christian mosaics and the #Islamic calligraphy decorating the interior. The four towers, called minarets, were added by the Ottomans for delivering the five-times-daily call to prayer.
#Aramaic, the language spoken by #Jesus of Nazareth, along with most of the rest of the Middle East from the Iron Age until the early Middle Ages, still survives in this tiny town in #Syria. This is how it sounds.

#FlashbackFriday to the last day of school 2018! Epic rap battle between MC Hammurabi & DivineIntervention. My lyrics are recycled bars from the previous year’s talent show. His are straight #off the dome.

Why Socrates Hated Democracy from The School of Life. This is one person’s reflection on one philosopher’s reflection on democracy. It doesn’t mean you have to agree with it. But it’s worth hearing a new perspective on something we often don’t stop to consider.
