Teaching with Document Based Questions

Casa Grande Innovation Academy: June 13, 2019

This DBQ Project Introductory Workshop is the fourth day of the Summer Road Trip, the Casa Grande Professional Development Seminar. Participants can sign up for one day or for all four days!

Are you looking for ways to teach the newly adopted Social Studies Standards and Disciplinary Skills and Practices? Teaching with document-based questions can help! Join Beth Montgomery from the DBQ Project to learn how to chunk the process of doing a DBQ with students in grades 3-12.  Learn how to help students read and extract relevant evidence and then use it to build arguments to support their claims verbally and in writing. This interactive workshop will be taught using DBQ Online so bring a device!.  You do not need to purchase materials to get a lot out of this day, but our lessons in history and social science make your life easier!

Beth Montgomery has trained and consulted with hundreds of districts throughout the country about how to effectively integrate literacy and inquiry skills into social studies and literature classes. She is an experienced practitioner, having taught for 24 years in grades 4-12 in New York, France, and Colorado. She fell in love with the DBQ Project about twenty years ago and has been spreading the love since stopping teaching in 2011.
