CRUSH THE DBQ
Students Struggling With the DBQ? (Just kidding, of course, they are!) The DBQ is a beast and these sheets are designed to help students tame that dreaded beast!
These sheets are a quick and easy way for students to practice analyzing documents and mastering the challenging "HIPP" aspect of the analysis!
The Prompt for this sheet is: "Evaluate the success of the Progressive Movement in generating reform between 1900-1920."
What's Included in this DBQ Worksheet
This is a two-sided worksheet designed to clearly show students how to write the DBQ- easy for the teacher to teach and easy for students to learn! Page 1 gives the prompt and a document. Below it are exemplars using the document within an essay. One is a poorly written exemplar to show students the common mistakes students make and it breaks down what is wrong with it. Next are two strongly written exemplars that teach two different ways to use the document. There are quick pointers below for students to recognize what is done well with the analysis writing.
Page 2 gives two other documents (one is a cartoon and one is the 17 Amendment) for the same prompt and challenges students to write two sample paragraphs. One asks for an analysis of the document and to set the context, the other asks for analysis with the audience, purpose, or point-of-view.
These sheets will definitely help any struggling writers to learn how to analyze documents more effectively within their essays to earn a 6 or 7 on the DBQ!
This can be used digitally or as printouts. Since it's a word file, teachers have the freedom to manipulate the document if needed.
