This short SAQ exercise attached is formatted exactly as if it were an SAQ from the AP World History exam. It asks students to analyze a portion of the chilly 1793 response from the Chinese Qianlong Emperor to his British opposite, George III, when the latter requested trading rights in China. The letter--and the animosity it fostered--encouraged hostility between the British and the Chinese and led directly to the outbreak of the Opium War.
The exercise contains historical context as well as the standards associated with the event.
I've had great success using assessments like these in my classroom.
