Product Description
The ultimate question with this Document Based Question (DBQ) that students should answer is, "Should the United States stick with a bicameral legislature, or move toward a unicameral legislature?" The beginning of the document gives a background and historical context to the bicameral nature of the US Congress. On the first page, there are the directions for students to follow and the essential question for the DBQ. There are a total of 6 documents the students must read, interpret, and answer questions for. Some of the documents are quotes from sources, political cartoons, and QR Codes (and links) to websites that students must visit. BYOD is strongly encouraged for this DBQ. There is an essay portion to this DBQ as well. Students will have to ultimately create an argument either defending bicameralism or supporting a transition to unicameralism using the sources from the DBQ. All sources are cited at the bottom of each page. Enjoy!
