Note to Students: This week, you will use your notes from this unit and the work from last week's Document Based Questions (DBQ) packet on the Pros & Cons of Globalization to prepare for a summative essay on Globalization.
Monday May 2nd Task Instructions:
Read through your notes in your journal (chapter notes), use the DBQ packet and any reading materials and sources to help outline and prepare for an essay on the pros and cons of globalization.
Wednesday, May 4th:
When you walk into class, you will be given a slip of paper. This paper will say "pro" or "con". This will be the position you are assigned on the debate of the pros and cons of globalization. You will sit and write a persuasive essay on the position you've been assigned. Your essay will include points on both the pros and the cons of Globalization, as well as background on the history that led up to globalization (European exploration and colonization). But your position you will take in the essay will be based on the paper slip you receive and you must argue for either a position of "pro" or "con" globalization. This position must be evident in your introductory paragraph and your conclusion paragraph. You will be allowed to use your outline (from Monday's class) and use the DBQ packet you submitted. You can print out YOUR DBQ document from last week (April 25-May1) to help draft your persuasive essay. These are the only items you are allowed to bring into the room for writing your essay. Your persuasive essay will be handwritten. Any materials you bring into class to write the essay must be stapled to the paper essay you will turn in at the end of class on Wednesday.
Your persuasive essay will be assessed based on Criterion A (Knowing and Understanding) strands i and ii and Criterion D (Thinking Critically) strands
