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.

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. 🇮🇪
