The Document-Based Question (DBQ) Project Method provides a framework of best practices that guides teachers and students to read smart, think straight, and write clearly. They are fully aligned with the CA ELA & Literacy Standards in History/Social Studies in that the lessons provide students with an opportunity to analyze informational text, to synthesize information from various sources, to identify and evaluate author point of view, and to support claims with evidence in writing. Throughout the units, students practice close reading of non-fiction texts, speaking and listening, and writing skills.
Unit Binders for Civics, American History, and World History, are available from Teaching, Learning & Leading.
