DBQ: Help on the posters

A little help on the DBQ Posters: 
I know a lot of students were asking questions through email. So here you go:

The Actual Attitudes Towards Mongols DBQ Handout

ATTITUDES TOWARDS MONGOLS DBQ Question Breakdown

DBQ POSTERS - HOW TO - With Examples of Attitudes Towards Mongols DBQ


HOW TO WHAP THE DBQ

For Friday, be sure you are doing whatever your group focused upon. Hopefully you have divided up the work involved to make this easier. If you have:
Meaning of the document
Analysis of the document (focusing on the question)
Point of view of the document
Your group can just cut out those and paste them onto the poster on Friday. The assembly of the DBQ Poster will take some time, but everyone should be able to finish by the end of the period on Friday.

A few examples of the layout (do not just blindly copy their work, it is not necessarily correct):

4. Why did it last a relatively short time?

• Contrast Aztec and Inca thinking about political administration and culture.

Essential Questions:
