How to do a DBQ;
DBQ Steps- what topic is the dbq on? Brainstorm key ideas regarding the topic.
Read the Historical context and the task. Create a chart breaking apart the task (essay question) . Be sure you have a clear understanding of the task.
Proceed to the documents. First read the question. As you read the document be sure to underline any possible answers to the question. Write the answer using full sentences. Use the nformation from the document and keep it brief (1-2 sentences).
Keep in mind the task, writing little notes from each document as you move along.
When writing the essay be sure to SUPPORT your answers with information from the documents as well as OUTSIDE INFORMATION. (look back at the brainstorm- what here was not in the document?) Dont simply state it. Be sure to explain every major idea that you write about.
Don’t simply take information from the documents and rewrite them!!! Use the details from the document as evidence to prove your answers and explain them. Please see me for any additional help!!!
