Townson’s Top Essay Picks
Early America (pre-American Revolution)
Exam tip: every year there is a question about African Americans or women.
There is 1 DBQ. Everyone does the same one of that.
There are 4 choices for the FRQs. You write 2. You must write an essay from the first category, which is pre-1900, and you must write an essay from the second category, which will be from the 1900s or later.
It is YOUR job to research and know these topics, their related facts, and their implications. I’m not going to do that for you. It won’t help you in the long run. Study well, study strong. I’m probably going to keep posting a bunch of review questions on here. Look them over, but in general, STAY OFF OF TUMBLR! You should be studying.
