MASTERING THE ESSAY
Connect with a representative to create a custom curriculum for your district.
Designed to help students learn to write clear, direct, persuasive essays in the context of their AP European History course, this handbook/workbook combo shows how to focus on writing skills AND historical content within the same class period.
Written by an AP Euro exam reader, Mastering the Essay consists of two parts: a 124-page instructional handbook that dissects the AP Euro rubrics, provides a detailed six-step method for composing high-scoring DBQ and LEQ responses, and provides guided practice exercises; and a 226-page workbook containing guided exercise sets (with answers and explanations) that accompany each unit in the handbook and are aligned to the historical time periods of the AP Euro curriculum. Also included are three practice exams (writing sections only), short-answer and multiple-choice questions, and exam preparedness tips.
