Event Details

In this workshop, participants will explore the DBQ (“Document-based Question”), an assessed assignment which requires secondary and undergraduate students to analyze a prompt, classify 5-7 short relevant texts (print and visual), and select from these texts appropriate information as they plan and produce a written response. While working through the DBQ writing process, the group will discuss what classifying and integrating several sources into texts requires of students and why a DBQ assignment may be valuable for learners in a variety of academic contexts at most proficiency and maturity levels.
