This DBQ has students evaluate the development of the Maya, Aztec, and Inca civilizations prior to European contact. The packet has 10 pages total with 7 pages of questions stemming from 8 primary or secondary source documents. The sources include 4 images and 1 map and have constructed response questions followed by an essay question using the documents.
My DBQ follows the format of the New York State social studies testing requirements for writing DBQs and can be used in many ways from standardized test prep and review to a substitute teacher lesson.
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 outline at http://www.corestandards.org/ELA-Literacy/RH/9-10
