Using DBQs to Engage Students in Literary Analysis, Novel Study, and Historical Inquiry

Document-based questions have been a part of history classrooms for years, particularly in AP courses. However, DBQs are also a great tool for use in pre-AP classrooms as well as ELA classrooms, and with the right scaffolding and support, can be used with students at all levels, from grades 4-12. Using DBQs, historical and literary texts can be “chunked,” and the process of evidence-based, argumentative writing can be broken down into its root parts, facilitating deeper thinking from ALL students throughout. This will be a very hands-on presentation during which teachers will experience – from the students’ perspective – lessons that support the development of key literacy and thinking skills.
