With Common Core Standards impacting social studies teachers in many ways, Document Based Questions (DBQs) are the perfect way to challenge students with critical thinking, argumentation, and point proof analysis. This DBQ posed a question to the students, "Were Andrew Jackson's actions as President right or wrong based on his oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution?" It then allow students to read and analyze primary source documents, then use evidence from those documents to create an argument. Speeches, a great political cartoon, and other primary sources are the documents that the students read and analyze. DBQs can be adapted and modified to meet the needs of diverse learners in your classroom. They are a perfect fit for Common Core Standards, Pre-AP skills, and giving students the opportunity to practice their critical thinking, reading, analysis, and argumentation skills.
