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.

“You did a training about 2 weeks ago that I attended. OH MY!  I love DBQ's!  I have to say that I seriously had the best day teaching ever! The kids were totally engaged and on task.  Even the kids who "check out" were spot on. If anyone ever questions 5th graders being able to do this (with scaffolding), they are wrong!  I want to copy and paste this day! I am so inspired!”
