DBQ = Document Based Question
Three leveled DBQ essay writing guides, DBQ essay grading rubric and level to percent conversion chart, and many tried and true suggestions for how to use these guides in your own classroom are included.
I created these guides as a solution to differentiating my classroom of students with various writing abilities and needs. I use these guides for my social studies classes. My ELA colleagues also use them; they are the folks who told me I should share them on TpT.
