This Document Based Question (DBQ) looks at the Scientific Revolution and the changes it made on Western views on nature.
The DBQ packet has 10 pages total, 6 pages are questions stemming from 8 primary or secondary source documents with works from Ptolemy (map), the Bible, Nicolaus Copernicus, Galileo Galilei, Francis Bacon, Rene Descartes and Isaac Newton. Each document is followed by at least one constructed response question and a summary essay question using the documents wraps up the DBQ.
I’ve left the DBQ as a Word Document so that you can add more space for writing answers as needed.
This DBQ can be used in many ways from test review to a substitute teacher lesson.
