This week students in grade 11 DP History looked at the broad span of Chinese history from the 19th to the 20th centuries and tried to make connections between individuals and events. This led us into our first assignment of writing a paper 3 essay. We spent time looking at the questions, the command terms in each, and how we might include the key concepts from DP History in our answer. Below is some of the work and planning that we have been doing.
