PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Get your students investigating how industrialism and slavery drove a wedge between the North and South, leading to Civil War. This Common Core resource packet has a mini-DBQ that is designed to be similar to the New York Regents exam and SBAC. The DBQ is divided into a primary source document analysis and a written response section. Students are expected to respond to questions, find evidence and provide commentary. It fits perfectly with the Common Core reading and writing standards 6-8.1-10.

Here’s what’s included with each DBQ:

1. A focus writing response question prominently on each page. The focus question for this DBQ is: To what extent did slavery divide the United States over time, making Civil War between the North and South inevitable?

2.Historical background introduction followed by a DBQ student task list.

3. Seven varied primary source and secondary source documents with short answer questions. These can also be done separately as a stations work format for another option. Specifically students analyze speeches, Lincoln's Inaugural Address, Political Cartoons, the Lincoln Douglas Debates and graphs.

5. Three writing response options so teachers can choose by class level or teaching preference. Each option includes instructional materials.

6. Student writing templates for each writing response option that both include stem sentences and do not.

7. Guided practice writing worksheets and a commentary stem sentence printable.

8. Rubrics.

This was a LABOR OF LOVE, that took an unimaginable amount of time. Have a great lesson!
