This Document Based Question (DBQ) follows the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and can be used in a variety of ways from an assignment, test prep, substitute lesson plan, and assessment. I use this as a review for the New York State Global History and Geography Regents exam.
The topic is the Industrial Revolution and looking at the issues and problems resulting from the widening gap between rich and poor, business leaders, politicians, and workers. It follows the format of the New York State social studies testing requirements for writing DBQs. The DBQ packet has 10 pages total, 6 pages are questions stemming from 8 primary or secondary source text documents with constructed response questions followed by an essay question using the documents.

I’ve left the DBQ as a Word Document so that you can add more space for writing answers as needed.
This DBQ addresses the Common Core State Standards. It has been updated with a page outlining the English Language Arts/History/Social Studies grades 9-10 as outlined at http://www.corestandards.org/ELA-Literacy/RH/9-10
