Do you know what DBQs are? You may have heard about them before if you know someone who has taken high school Advanced Placement (AP) history courses. DBQ’s are Document Based Questions that ask us to consider historical evidence and form an opinion or argument based upon information from maps, letters, paintings, diaries, official documents, and more. In this class, we will explore two DBQ’s, one focused on U.S. History, and the other focused on World History. We will analyze primary sources, form arguments, have debates, and write essays and journals to share our strong thinking. This class will help you to develop evidence-based argument skills that you can then apply to future studies, life experiences, and careers!
Document-Based Questions: Let’s DBQ it!
