Document - Based Assessment for High School
To prepare students to write essay answers to document-based questions (DBQs), this practical activity book guides students step by step through the analysis of primary and secondary source quotations. Reproducible pages present 22 DBQs addressing topics that correspond to curriculum standards-topics ranging from immigration in the colonial period to what today's demographic trends portend for America's future. For each topic, students are helped in the interpretation of half a dozen quotes, while teachers are provided with specific answer keys, a scoring rubric for the essays, and (sometimes) sample essays with suggested grades.
