Day 2: DBQ Quick Writes: Unleashing the Power of DBQs for Daily Instruction (F2F) (3-12 ELAR/SS) (June 12th, 2024 9a-4pm)

This workshop supports ELAR and Social Studies teachers grades 3-12.

Important Session Information:

Looking for ways to utilize the resources and skills embedded in a DBQ? Looking for ways to incorporate more writing into your daily social studies or ELAR lessons? Document-based Questions (DBQs) are often used as a way to access a student's historical and analytical thinking skills and argumentative writing abilities. But, DBQs can also be used to teach those skills in a student-centered approach. This session will focus on ways to utilize bits and pieces of a DBQ unit in short one- or two-day lessons. The training will feature various strategies to help students with document analysis and increase writing skills through "DBQ Quick Writes." Participants will leave with a better sense of how they can utilize the DBQ resources beyond full units, worksheet packets and within their daily instruction. Note: This session supports 3rd-12th grade social studies and/or ELAR teachers. This session will offer GT credit.
