WRITING A DBQ
AP World HistoryBy Ken Burd. Use PowerPoint® presentation slides to show students a step-by-step method for formulating and composing a well-written response to the AP World History DBQ. Prepared by an experienced world history teacher, the presentation uses a sample College Board-style DBQ to break down the process of answering the question into four stages: analyzing the question, organization, interpreting the documents, and thesis development and review. The unit comes with a CD-ROM containing the PowerPoint® presentation and teacher instructions. Designed to be used in conjunction with sample DBQs in the reproducible activity book DBQ Practice: World History. (Also available is Writing the DBQ, a set of six 11" x 17" posters.)
