AP European History 2011 - FRQs

I created this to specifically talk about each other's answers on the FRQ section

DBQ: I misinterpreted one document -.- so I don't know if I can possible get some expanded points, three groups: a) Influences - religious sources b) Her responses - tight grasp over power and molding public opinion; used almost all; included at least 4 POVs, thesis addressed everything, included relevant outside info. In the basic core I'm sure have all the points, given that one of those permits you to misinterpret one document, so I think that at least a 6 but what are my chances of earning at least one expanded core? stupid document -.-

FRQ 2: I like it a lot! full thesis and coherent I would say. For Spain I talked about the religious hegemony in the context of the Reconquista and the need to displace the Muslim domination and later on how the inquisition allowed for firm power of monarchy and church, unity means stability etc. For Italy: various city-states that compete, whether militarily, financially, or artistically; unification is hard for such city-states with differing systems (e.g. Duchy - Milan, Republic-Florence) multiple dialects inhibit union; larger European states had claims upon the region - e.g. France and Spain --- I think its at least a 7 I hope an 8

FRQ 5: This one sucked. For industrialization: machinery allows for faster products - demands are met; same styles found in different styles; accessibility
For imperialism: Availability of raw materials could ensure factory owners necessary supplies to create products etc. Used the example of Leopold's rubber in Belgium
Nonetheless, I hate this essay at least a 4, a higher score will be a miracle - Anyway from what I wrote here, do you think I might be on the right track for such scores? Specially the DBQ?

    Sounds good. A single misinterpreted document shouldn't hinder you from getting expanded core - the rubric simply states that you need to have correctly interpreted a "majority" of the documents - which means one more than half.

    I opened the DBQ, and the only thing I would have been more prepared for was WWII/the Cold War. We talked about her in AP Lang. :)

    2: Complete fail. I talked about the Holy Roman Empire. I'm expecting a negative score on that one.

    5: WIN! I took APUSH this year too, and we talked about the Industrial Revolution a lot. :)

    Seemed easy, but I already took World History AP and APUSH, so I guess that helped.
