hi so i recently hit 2k and i’m quaking that’s insane. so i’m staying real simple here, i’m doing little handwritten urls with lil doods to go along with them. so to get one:

•must be following me

•reblog this post

•send me an ask telling me what you’re being for halloween

•if you don’t celebrate halloween or don’t know yet just tell me your favourite book

•also include if you want it in writing or printing

•uh i guess that’s it!

also thank you guys again for 2k that’s amazing uh bye

if this flops it didn’t happen okay?

anonymous asked:

can you give tips on how to write a dbq for apush? i wrote my first one and my score was awful

you could actually just use this as a general guideline for dbqs / essays in general hahaha

  • you gotta be real specific
  • you can’t just say “oh it changed a whole lot”
    • why did it change a whole lot? to what extent did it change? in what aspect of history did it change? economically? politically? religiously? give them more detail
  • make sure you know what the prompt is asking for and answer it
    • idk i sometimes go off on tangents and that is Not Good. stay focused on what your thesis and what you’re answering
  • take a definitive stance in your thesis and continue to support that throughout your essay
  • include the time period / aspects of the question in your essay
  • connect your documents back to your analysis, no need to quote them directly (that’s actually a waste of your time)
  • when analyzing documents, try to examine the motivations / reasons for the document + take a look at the author and the time period. use that to support your analysis and your stance
  • context ! is ! real ! important ! give the reader some good old context to start off your essay with because time and history is Very Big
  • bring in outside information that relates to the topic and supports your position!!!
