The DBQ Project: Inquiry, Dialogue, and Evidence-Based Writing – Day Two
Charlottesville, VA: January 29, 2019
For over a decade, The DBQ Project has promoted rigorous reading and writing instruction for all students, not just those in advanced classes. Using document-based questions as a method of instruction enables all students to master high-level skills. This two-part workshop will provide a solid understanding of the DBQ Project 6-Step Method, which builds on students’ curiosity and increases their confidence to answer compelling, authentic questions. During the first session, participants will analyze and norm student work using the DBQ Project Rubric, as well as explore best practices that motivate and empower students to use close reading skills to analyze documents and write strong, evidence-based essays. The follow-up workshop will focus on assessing student work and coaching students to produce higher-quality work.
Conference runs from 9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Registration and breakfast begin at 8:00 a.m.
This is a two-day event. Day one was on 11/13/2018.
