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. As students progress up the ladder, they encounter progressively more complex tasks and challenges.

Sample Units

“The DBQ Project engages and challenges students of all ability levels. We have been able to successfully use these materials with students in grades as low as fourth. As a Curriculum Coordinator I have seen many teachers implement dbqs in their classrooms. The process outlined by the DBQ Project provides step-by –step instructions to attain high quality results. One of the most valuable steps I have witnessed is the "thrash out". This acts a pre-writing activity and allows students to formalize their thoughts and gain more insight as they enter into the writing process.”
