Regents Review Theme-Amendments.pdf

SPECIAL PRINT!  Must be printed in color!

The Thematic Essay can be on ANY topic in American history, therefore preparation can be very difficult without a solid method of approach. Print up this Thematic Essay Topic list.  It is color coded.  A single topic, like Teddy Roosevelt, can prepare you to write an essay on as many as 10 different themes.  Pick the topics that cover several themes.  Study the era, and fill out the Thematic Essay blank grid to help you study.
