Promoting inquiry and improving literacy without sacrificing content seems like an impossible task. Document Based Questions (DBQs) makes it all very possible! For two decades, The DBQ Project has helped students of all ability levels and ages to think critically with inquiry based units that mirror the type of evidence-based writing and synthesis required in the SAT and AP exams. Led by DBQ Project team members, this lively one-day workshop will provide instructional strategies and intensive modeling on historical thinking skills, argumentative writing, and how to scaffold DBQs for students with various abilities. Special emphasis will be dedicated to the Kentucky Document Collections, a fantastic resource for digital primary sources collected by the Kentucky Historical Society.

By the program's end, you'll be well-prepared to craft dynamic, inquiry-driven classrooms.
