The National Park Service and The DBQ Project Present: Asking the Right Questions in the Right Way: Using DBQs to Promote Critical Thinking and Writing for K-12 American History Teachers

St. Louis, Missouri
March 15, 2018 - October 11, 2018

This two-day, interactive workshop is sponsored jointly by The National Park Service and The DBQ Project.

Current debates in the United States about Real News vs. Fake News and how we know what is true mean that teachers need to spend more time teaching history with multiple perspectives. As students need to continually build their content knowledge, teachers need to construct inquiry-driven lessons that build literacy skills and prepare students for engaged citizenship in the 21st Century. This two-day training will provide teachers with instructional strategies, sample lessons, resources from the National Park Service, and practice using the document-based question approach to inspire great teaching and learning.
