The Common Core State Standards

The DBQ Project DBQs and MiniQs integrate skills with content in history.  Historical content is embedded in a pedagogy which we now call The DBQ Method that helps students learn to think and write.  As a result, our lessons address most all of the common core standards in reading, writing, speaking and listening, and several standards in language. The DBQ Method helps students read with understanding, think straight, and write clearly about history.

L=Language standard     RH=Reading History standard     WHST=writing history standard     SL=Speaking and Listening standard
