Product Description
This Document Based Question (DBQ) was created for 10th Grade World History. It could also be used as a review for the New York State Global History and Geography Regents exam. The topic discussed how the Belgian experience in the Congo was an example of the evils of Imperialism. It follows the format of the New York State social studies testing requirements for writing DBQs. This DBQ has 9 pages total including 9 primary or secondary source documents (including 2 images, 1 map and 1 cartoon) with constructed response questions. The final question asks students to develop their own thesis to the AIM: How was the Belgian experience in the Congo an example of the evils of Imperialism?

I created this DBQ for my Global History I course. I knew this would be useful as it combined primary and secondary sources with analyses of maps and images. It does take considerable time to create these but I do know that they provide a strong outlet to apply the particular lesson involved. I hope you find them useful as well! Please leave feedback on your students’ ability to complete the tasks involved in this DBQ.

If you like this DBQ, you can make it as part of my Build a Bundle - 3 DBQs for $6. Spend just $2.50 more and get 2 more DBQs!

I’ve left the DBQ as a Word Document so that you can add more space for writing answers as needed.
