Book Assignment #2
Due Friday, May 26 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 (even if you’re reading a biography or history and you know where the story is going, try to anticipate some things like trends or themes that you may have encountered in the book that you may not have anticipated or known). This would also be where you can examine your connection (or lack thereof) to the characters or events.
