UNIT EXAM #1 PROMPTS AND PREPARATION- CH. 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5
Below, you will find the two possible prompts for the unit exam. Please prepare for both of them. You will not know which prompt you will get on 10/14/14. You will be writing a standard 5-paragraph essay, in which you develop a claim (thesis) to answer the prompt and three subclaims with evidence to support your main claim (body paragraphs.) Each body paragraph should make sure to have the following: a debatable subclaim, relevant and specific evidence, contextual background and details for the evidence and a clear discussion as to how the evidence supports the subclaim and/or the thesis (main claim.)
- How does conflict and adversity contribute to how the United States developed as a nation in the 1700-1800s?
- How does the quest for “the pursuit of happiness” impact the development of the nation in the 1700-1800s?
You will NOT be allowed to use your packet for the in class essay. However, you will be allowed to use the GREEN prompt paper. On the back, you will find space for your notes. THIS WILL BE THE ONLY HELP YOU WILL BE ALLOWED TO HAVE OUT FOR THE TEST!!
