The purpose of this product is to do one thing: MAKE THE DBQ SIMPLE!
For years, I struggled to understand what was expected for students on the AP DBQ essay, which of course makes it very challenging to teach students how to do it. These templates do just that! And they are universal- to be used with all your DBQs for AP US, Euro, and World.
With pull out quotes for the beginners, the templates give advice and examples so students know how to write the DBQ effectively. This is a product for teachers who want to empower their students with the knowledge and skills on how to get a 7 on the DBQ or at least move from a 2-3, to a 4-6. As a veteran APUSH teacher at a struggling school that is 75% title 1, I truly believe these templates break down the complicated expectations of the DBQ into simple, manageable steps for all learners.
This product includes:
1) Universal template for beginner or struggling writers
2) Universal template with less support for experienced or advanced writers
3) A prewriting analysis sheet for the documents and how to organize them
4) Self/Peer Review Rubric with room for feedback.
If you want these templates with 10 practice worksheets spanning from units 2-9 that scaffold skills and help students recognize common mistakes in quick excercises buy this very reduced bundle:
