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!

Omar ibn Said (1770–1864) was a writer and Islamic scholar, born and educated in what is now Senegal, who was enslaved and transported to the United States in 1807. There, while enslaved for the remainder of his life, he wrote a series of works of history and theology, including a posthumously famous autobiography. Omar ibn Said was not “a slave”. Omar ibn Said was a scholar who was enslaved. Slavery was his condition, his circumstance, but not his identity. Always remember this when learning about and thinking about slavery. Extend the same recognition to all men and women who were enslaved by other men and women.
Always listen to #Gandalf. 🧙🏻‍♂️
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
During the Ming Dynasty, China’s economic strength was on full display in the Indian Ocean in the form of trade missions led by the admiral #ZhengHe. The Chinese trade junks rivaled any contemporary Western ships by leaps and bounds. Even after the end of the trade missions, China did not cease to be a major economic power. Today, China is an economic force to be reckoned with, and as we saw from the news this morning, with a #TradeWar beginning the USA 🇺🇸 and China 🇨🇳, they are not afraid to put those junks back in the water.
Marches were held today across the country and across the world to speak out against gun violence in schools and throughout American society. Regardless of whether or not you support government action to end the plague of gun violence in America, recognize that we are witnessing history unfolding. You are living through it. “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.” #MarchForOurLives
Happy Paddy’s Day! The history of Ireland 🇮🇪 goes all the way back before the Neolithic Revolution so it does, and connects to much of what we’ve been learning this year, as well as much of what you’ll be learning next year. St Patrick was a fifth-century Romano-British Christian missionary and who is most remembered for spreading the message of Christianity to the pagan isle ☘️. This picture was taken up in County Antrim in the north of Ireland, the part that’s still under British rule. It’s been a long back and forth to say the least, and we’ll be learning a bit about it in class this year and next. 🇮🇪
