AP European History Document Based Questions Period 4


Directions: The following question is based on the accompanying Documents 1–6. This question is designed to test your ability to apply several historical-thinking skills simultaneously—i.e., contextualization, historical causation, and appropriate use of relevant historical evidence. Your response should be based on your analysis of the documents and your knowledge of the topic.
Write a persuasive and coherent essay that does the following:

  • States an appropriate thesis that directly addresses all parts of the question.

  • Supports the thesis or an appropriate argument with evidence from all or all but one of the documents AND your knowledge of European history beyond/outside the documents.

  • Analyzes a majority of the documents in terms of at least one of the following features as appropriate to the argument: intended audience, purpose, point of view, format, argument, limitations, and/or social context.

  • Places the arguments in the context of broader regional, national, or global processes.

  • Synthesizes all of the above into a coherent essay that extends the argument, links it to another historical context, OR accounts for conflicting evidence about the topic.

Question 1. Evaluate changes in warfare during the First World War (1914-1918) and analyze the impacts of these changes.
