Included in this offering is the Enduring Issues essay from my upcoming project on the Middle Ages for 9th and 10th Grade Global/World History. The Enduring Issues essay is the new essay format for the Regents exam, replacing the DBQ. The documents in this project link trade and cultural diffusion across Africa, Europe, and Asia. For the 9th Grade teacher preparing students for the AP World History exam, this is a very good source for practicing the writing skills for the Long Essay or DBQ. A Google Docs version of this essay is included with purchase and can be edited to fit your needs. The essay includes graphics, primary sources, maps, and links to helpful sources that will help your students be able to use the essay to learn the content.
