My students need the Document Based Questions in American History Project lessons because they will learn how to analyze primary source documents in an engaging and interactive manner.
Names, dates and places! Ugh! Isn't history boring? We'll not in Ms. Regalado's class. It is my goal to instill in my students a love of history. Through hands-on learning activities, students use the the events of the past to learn to be socially responsible citizens of the future.
I feel so fortunate to teach the students I do.
Roughly 10-15% of each of my students are English Learners. Many of these students even have parents who live half way around the world in China, Vietnam, Japan and Korea. I take special pride in teaching these students, for the History curriculum allows me to incorporate many of my students' cultural knowledge into my lesson plans. In doing this, I aim to make the curriculum highly relevant and engaging for all of my students. My classroom is filled with students each day who all come from different backgrounds. I work to promote a classroom culture where student differences are embraced and they learn not just tolerate each other, but respect and understand their classmates. With the growing level of technology, our world is shrinking. Communication among people across countries is now the norm and a worldly perspective is of the utmost importance.
DBQ stands for Documents Based Questions. These activities help students to learn about American History in a way that is easy for them to understand. Through analyzing primary documents, students practice their writing and persuasive skills. Also, with the upcoming roll out of the Common Core Standards, the DBQ project focuses on teaching students lessons that demand that students take and defend a position. The DBQ project lessons has interesting questions, uses background essays and documents that are engaging and understandable. The lessons go beyond engagement and require analytical reasoning, and students like the challenge. There is nothing like success in an authentic, demanding task. As Thomas Paine said, "What we obtain to cheap, we esteem too lightly."
As a teacher of middle school students it is a constant challenge to present the American History curriculum in an engaging way that students can understand and appreciate how it is relevant to their lives.
While some students find the curriculum easy to understand, others find the information too complex. The DBQ project differentiates their instruction. Before now, the benefits of the Document Based Questions were only seen by AP students. Thanks to the DBQ project, all students can benefit.
