Global II: Thematic & DBQ
The test was as expected.
The multiple choice was the same info but worded differently, there were more non-European questions, the documents were much easier than I expected.
That said, if you wrote about Nelson Mandela in the Thematic Essay and said he ended apartheid, you are in for some trouble. I must have said 200 times that F.W. DeKLERK ended apartheid, and kids always get it wrong, so STAY AWAY from Mandela on essays. Same for Hitler. This was a PERFECT essay for Stalin & the Ayatollah, like I kept telling you to study & do!
We might have grades by next Thursday. Do not email me before then or I will ignore all of your emails.
I wish you much luck on your remaining exams! I hope you did well today! Let me know what you wrote about & your outside info for your DBQ as well as what you did for your Thematic!
