a5164543b4ae6d61e8cf91845cfe9c6aHere you have EVERYTHING you need to write your DBQ essay. I didn’t mention this is class, but I created an organizer for the essay to help you keep your writing… well, organized, but what’s really cool (to me at least, because I never thought of it before) is that I posted below a WORD file of the organizer, not just a PDF, which means you have the ability to edit the file. In other words, you can plan your essay using the organizer, and then continue developing your writing until it is a complete essay. You can write the whole thing in that WORD file! Cool, right? Ok, maybe just to me, but I hope you at least find it useful.
