Using DBQs to Engage Students in Authentic Historical Inquiry – NCHE Conference
Washington, D.C.: March 14, 2019
The DBQ Project was created to help teachers help students at ALL grade levels read with understanding, think straight, and write clearly. Our engaging questions and use of primary and secondary sources give students the opportunity to investigate history from a variety of perspectives, and supports discussion and debate as students clarify their own ideas and write evidence-based arguments. Highlighting a unit from both our American and World history materials, participants will gain a solid overview of The DBQ Project materials and understand how our resources and pedagogy aligns with the current shifts in history education. The DBQ Online platform will also be used to show how technology can support deep historical thinking.
