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.

Sample Units

“The DBQ Project does an amazing job of providing students with an opportunity of thinking and behaving like historians and teachers the opportunity to model what it means to be a historian.  The lessons are well organized and structured in a way that allows students and teachers to gradually become more engaged with the resources. The DBQ Project provides a hands-on inquiry approach to history, teaches analytical skill, and scaffolds the writing process.
