The Global Guys have created a tool to help students organize their information and write better essays.
This DBQ focuses on the changes the Mongols, Spanish and French have brought upon Global History. The organizer allows students to annotate all 9 documents and categorize the key pieces of information so that they can write the essay at the end.
We all know the hardest part of a DBQ is incorporating relevant outside information into the easy writing process. With this model students will have a tool to start practicing this important skill.
There is a powerpoint included to model how to use this approach with four of the nine documents. There is a PDF and PPT file included in the zip file.
