History List - Chapter 7

GoPunchRocks's picture

Ok this is primarily for people who want to do well on essays. If you want to recieve a 8 or 9 on your AP essays, you are going to have to demonstrate you know some history. Generally per paragraph you want to insert bout 5 peices of history. So Ive composed a list of history and you can browse through it and pick and choose. I even took the liberty of dividing it into historical categories. This is also helpful for general essays in history class. (I started with Chapter 7 because i had to do it for hw anyways :D )

If your essay topic is "Was the revolution an economic, political, social, or intellectual event?" you would select your answer then look through the appropriate history topic and select say 5 or so things to include per paragraph. You can use it to help prove or disporve anything in your essay.
