Democratizing the DBQ: Reading and Writing About History Using Primary and Secondary Sources

Staff DevelopmentThe DBQ Project offers one or two day workshops for teachers to help them demystify documents analysis and persuasive writing for their students. We introduce our Six Step DBQ Project Method and then guide teachers through a documents based question to show them how to use it. Teachers learn how to help students thoroughly analyze primary and secondary source documents and how to guide students to organize and write a five paragraph argumentative essay using the documents.
