This is the written portion of my unit test.
There are three short answer questions that can be answered in 1-3 sentences.
These questions are: (a)Describe ONE similarity between the rule of Clovis, king of the Franks, and the Emperor Charlemagne.
(b)Describe ONE difference between the rule of Clovis, king of the Franks, and the Emperor Charlemagne.
(c)Explain ONE reason for the difference described in (b).
There is also one long essay question that should be answered in 4-5 paragraphs.
This question is: Develop an argument that evaluates the development and impacts of two of the following regions’ social structures during the period c. 600 B.C.E. to c. 1450 C.E.:
- India (Hindu caste system)
- Bantu peoples in Africa
- medieval Europe
- civilizations in Mesoamerica and the Andes
This essay should compare the social structures of two of the four regions listed above. The essay should have a clear thesis and support a clear argument. Using multiple point of views (from the two chosen regions) could be a good paragraph topic.
My paragraph structure would be: 1 – intro, 2 – explain social structure of first region, 3 – explain social structure of second region, 4 – compare the two regions and why each structure worked (or did not work) for them, 5 – closing
Please let me know if you have questions.
I have included the long essay rubric and the original unit test paper.
