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!
