Following the CIA students continued work on a DBQ (Document Based Question) Essay. Students received multiple sources in different formats and were asked to answer the question "Should Hatshepsut be included in a study of Ancient Egypt?" This question has allowed our students to contemplate several interesting thoughts and questions including the role of women throughout history, and the question of what should or should not be included in curriculum.
