This is an "Enduring Issue" essay modeled on the draft New Regents examinations in New York State scheduled to being in 2019 as described at EngageNY.
This essay is suitable for students who have studied world history at a high school level on the topics of 9.1 Development of Civilization and 9.2 Belief Systems. This is the essay I would do with my ninth grade Global Studies students at about ten weeks.
This product includes the following:
1. Student version of the essay prompt in PDF
2. Teacher version of the essay prompt in PDF. This includes suggestions for assessment and identifies the framework reference for each document.
3. A grading rubric in PDF.
4. A zip file that can be uploaded to TeachersWebHost.com for online essay composition and assessment
5. A zip file that can be uploaded to TeachersWebHost.com for generating multiple-choice version of the documents for study as the new "stimulus-based multiple-choice" as will be seen on the new part I.
