Book Assignment #1
Due Thursday by 10 p.m. 500 words minimum.
Please include the title of your book in your response.
a. Summarize your reading for that part; also, this might be the part to examine bias in the book w/ specific examples.
b. Connect a historical thinking skill to your book segment – contextualization, comparison, change and continuity over time, synthesis, cause and effects, periodization (including turning points).
c. Connect your reading to something we’ve studied in APUSH.
d. Make predictions as to where your story will go (in your last assignment, this needs to be an evaluation – Give the book a grade – A, B, C, D, F – and a recommendation to keep the book for next year or ditch it and why). This would also be where you can examine your connection (or lack thereof) to the characters or events.
