Students pick two events/topics studied during the year that they believe are cause and effect (i.e. how the American Revolution may have helped cause the French Revolution or how the Treaty of Versailles' failure led to the rise of Hitler and therefore WWII) and write an end of year essay. This can work for both US and World History. The complete instructions are clear and thorough in the handout and sample topics are provided. I typically make this a 100 point assignment and a points distribution is included.
