  2. 2. Strategy 1: Response Group (with a twist)
  3. 3. Response Group• Challenge students to discuss controversial and complex issues in small groups.• Create heterogeneous groups and a suitable classroom arrangement.• Prepare students to answer provocative critical thinking questions.• Allow groups time to prepare their responses.• Facilitate a lively class discussion.
  4. 4. DBQ Response Group1- Model the skill. Do one question together. • Begin by decoding the question. Annotate what the question is asking or rewrite in your own words. • Allow each group to respond quickly.2- Have groups brainstorm five things theyalready know about the question topic. • Allow each group to share. • Different presenter.3- Assign each group one of the DBQdocuments for analysis. They decide how theywould use it to answer the question. • Create one document analysis question per document. • Allow each group to share. • Different presenter.Complete the essay individually.Use a Response Group rubric/scoring sheet.
  5. 5. Example- Turning a DBQ into a Response Group Activity DBQ Question Analyze the extent to which the American Revolutionary War was truly "revolutionary”? Round One Decode the question. Have each group present what they think the question is asking them to do. Round Two Have each group brainstorm what they already know about the Revolutionary Era.
  6. 6. Example- Turning a DBQ into a Response Group ActivityRound ThreeProvide each group one of the documentsfound in the DBQ along with the appropriatedocument analysis worksheet –map, politicalcartoon, illustration, etc.If you have more groups than docs,repeat the documents.Provide ample time—5 to 10 minutes—forgroups to complete their analysis.Have a new presenter share theirinformation.Alternatively, rotate the documents throughthe groups and assign each group onedocument to present.Culminate with a discussion about theapproach to writing this DBQ and havestudents write their essays individually.
  7. 7. Strategy 2: Skill Builder
  8. 8. Skill Builder Use engaging tasks to teach social studies skills. Teach the skill through modeling and guided practice. Prepare students to work in pairs. Set clear expectations, allow students to practice the skill repeatedly, and give immediate feedback. Debrief the lesson to help students make connections to key social studies concepts.
  9. 9. Using Skill Builders with DBQsAllow students to be actively involvedin learning the skill.•Decode the DBQ essay question as awhole class.Model the skill.•Do one document together.Provide clear expectations, practiceskill repeatedly, and give immediatefeedback.•Create and post placards at stationsaround the room. Students work in pairs.Debrief and make connections to keyconcepts.•Challenge students to think holisticallyabout their document analysis and apply itto the question.Have lesson processing be theindividual essay writing.
  10. 10. Example- Turning a DBQ into a Skill Builder Activity Decode the Question (Middle School) What was the role of religion in unifying or dividing societies of the Eastern Hemisphere? Provide any necessary historical background: Religions of the world have historically served to unite as well as divide the people of the Eastern Hemisphere. Since the first civilization until the modern day, religious beliefs have brought people together in peace and ripped people apart in violence.
  11. 11. Example- Turning a DBQ into a Skill Builder Activity Document 1 Create placards for each document. Provide analysis questions for lower grade levels. Students take notes on their Skill Builder Handout. Students complete work at one station and check their work with the teacher before going to the next station until all documents have been analyzed.
  12. 12. Example- Turning a DBQ into a Skill Builder Activity Wrap up the activity and make connections between the documents and the question. Divided societies of the Eastern Hemisphere.
