This DBQ was designed to be similar in format to our district wide assessment DBQ, however it is clearly a "beginners" DBQ. This is a great resource to use with multiple levels of learners by changing the questions to be on different levels of Bloom.
You will also find an essay rubric and two sample essays attached. One is "excellent" and the other is "unacceptable".
It is a phenomenal activity to have students read, critique, and assess these essays with a partner to determine what makes a quality DBQ essay.
