How did the Inca maintain control over such a large empire?

Interpretation, Investigation #3


After reading and reasoning with sources about the Ancient Inca Empire, students write an interpretation to the Field Museum arguing about how the Inca were able to maintain control over an empire of its size. Our disciplinary literacy tools support students as they plan and write their interpretations.

On the following pages (use arrows to right) you will see essays from four students. Below you'll find the task students were given as well as unscored student essays and the rubric used to score this task.
