This is NOT a full DBQ, but it addresses DBQ SKILLS and is good to use for AP European history as part of a summer assignment/early part of the year assignment to get students thinking of POV in the DBQ. This is a skills lesson that I developed for my AP European history class to introduce the students to carefully reading a Primary Source, considering motivations of the author and Point of View of the authors. The reading and questions are accessible for honors students as well. If you read through the document with students in "lower level" classes, this is still accessible.
I took a Primary Source reading on the 1453 Siege (and eventual fall) of Constantinople and broke it into manageable chunks. After each "chunk" I ask several comprehension questions and at least one thinking question. I also ask questions that are designed to get the students to think about the motives of the author etc. As a summary activity, the activity also includes a graphic organizer chart that students can use to summarize the various parts of the reading, the Point of View of the Author, and the Summary of the whole of the reading.
