For your next LEQ, I want you to apply the Historical Reasoning Skill of Continuity and Change Over Time to your knowledge of Chinese history. Remember, CCOT requires that you provide evidence to support your claim that pattern X was in fact a continuity in China. If you say something persisted over time, you should include evidence of it existing in the beginning, middle and end of the time frame under analysis. Also, if you identify event Y as making a significant Change in Chinese History, then you must likewise provide evidence from before and after the turning point event to demonstrate a change.
As a class - please focus your efforts on a valid thesis (Continuity AND Change), contextualization and LOTS AND LOTS of specific historical evidence. Use historical terms; be as detailed as possible.
PROMPT: Evaluate changes in the political organization of China from 1750 to the present.
