CONGRATULATIONS! You've survived the three largest sections of the AP World History Exam. Bringing up the rear is the LOOOOONG Essay Question. Don't think you have to write 5 pages here. It is simply named because they require you to write a bit more than the SHORT answer questions. Good news: you will have an option between two choices.
One final question. You got 40 minutes. It will cover one of four types of questions (COMP, CAUSE, CCOT, or PERIODIZ). Oh, and you need a thesis. Since there are 4 possible styles that the LEQ can take, below is a chart to guide you. You'll need a thesis, describe and explain your answer, back it with evidence, and show synthesis (for a total of 6 points).
So to write this essay you will choose one of three long essay questions to answer. Each of the three questions focus on the same reasoning skills but apply to different time periods.
The things YOU must focus on when writing your LEQ are: 1. Explain and analyze significant issues in world history. 2. Develop an argument supported by an analysis of historical evidence.
