Bundle -NYS Global 9 Enduring Issue Essay g9w40 **New Regents Style**
This is an "Enduring Issue" essay modeled on the draft New Regents examinations in New York State scheduled to begin in 2019 for grade ten as described at EngageNY. This essay is for grade NINE week FORTY ("g9w40"). The idea is to have students in my class doing one of these essays every ten weeks in grades nine and ten.
This essay is intended to be written after forty weeks of Global History and Geography I. That is, completion of New York State Social Studies Frameworks 9.1 to 9.10. This essay would be suitable for a portion of a final examination.
