The DBQ Project Library

Our DBQs and Mini-Qs are really short units of study. Many districts are using The DBQ Project units across grade levels to assist in teaching reading and writing in social studies. As students progress up the ladder, they encounter progressively more complex tasks and challenges.

“The DBQ training and materials are the best professional development for helping history teachers teach students to read, write, and think critically about historical questions.  Our TAH teachers are "on fire" and now they have spread the word to their world history colleagues.  It is great to see whole departments get behind this effort.  As Common Core Standards begin to be implemented the DBQ will be a great foundational piece.  Thank you to The DBQ Project for a relevant and needed program for history teachers.”
