Students think like historians as they analyze primary sources, write short essays for document-based questions, and take part in a culminating debate.

Each reproducible unit contains groups of documents with differing views, six worksheets (two interpretive, one comparative for each pair), a background essay, a teacher introduction, student directions, two DBQs with suggestions for writing, and a DBQ scoring guide.
