Democratizing the DBQ: Helping ALL students to Read, Think and Write in History and ELA Classrooms
Edward M. Kennedy Institute: February 9, 2019
The newly adopted Massachusetts Curriculum Framework calls attention to the importance of developing content knowledge, inquiry-driven approaches to learning, building literacy skills and preparing all students for engaged citizenship in the 21st century. This training will provide Social Studies and ELA teachers with instructional strategies, sample lessons, and best practices to utilize the document-based question approach. Chip Brady, Co-founder, will provide participants with an overview of the DBQ methodology and materials. The day will be interactive and full of concrete strategies for close reading of documents, scaffolding document analysis and writing, and how to embed dialogue and collaboration throughout the inquiry.
