7 Task -Discuss two British actions that caused colonists to rebel -Discuss two examples of colonial rebellions Example: The royal government of England passed many laws and took many actions that angered colonists. One of these such actions was the Tea Act. The Tea Act was simply an added tax on tea, in addition to a law which stated that only British Tea could be sold in the colonies. This especially angered colonists because tea was the most popular drink since it flavored the natural murky water colonists drank. Although tea was illegal if it was not British tea, many colonists smuggled Dutch tea into the colonies. This was not only lucrative, but it also provided a sound solution to supporting the British government, headed by King George III. The Tea Act was one of many British actions that led to colonial rebellion. (Doc 4, Doc 7) Note: This paragraph started with an intro and conclusion, had two documents cited, used proper grammar, provided details from the documents as well as outside information. Concluding Paragraph Example

8 Task -Discuss two British actions that caused colonists to rebel -Discuss two examples of colonial rebellions Example: In conclusion, the Tea Act and the Stamp Act were two British actions that caused colonists to rebel. Colonists rebelled in such ways as organizing boycotts or having more violent protests like the Boston Massacre. Many events occurred in Boston besides the Boston Massacre including the Boston Tea Party. These events led to the American Revolution, without which America might still be under British rule today.

12 A Message to Parents (looking to help their child work on a DBQ): Encourage your children to use the knowledge learned in class as the basis of their essay, not information found in the documents. Use this program and resources found in the main menu as a resource to write a solid DBQ. DBQ Writing 101

13 In order to write a DBQ essay, use the G.E.T.; T.R.E.E.R.E.E.K.; R.I.C. format…explore the upcoming slides to learn how to write the essay… How to write a DBQ Introductory Paragraph How to write a DBQ Introductory Paragraph

14 The introductory paragraph is the most important paragraph in your essay for the following reasons: This gives the grader a first impression. The grader usually has an idea of what the grade will probably be based on the first two sentences. You will be briefly satisfying the task in this paragraph, so the grader knows after reading this paragraph where they will be docking you points. Write this paragraph using the G.E.T. Method The GET Method

15 The GET method is used to write solid introductory DBQ paragraphs. It breaks the paragraph style down into three parts. As you progress through this section, each part will be explained in more detail – G: General Statement – E: Example/Evidence – T: Thesis Statement The G Statement

16 – This is your first sentence, it is a general statement about the topic of the DBQ – This sentence should only introduce the reader to the topic – This sentence should not bring up any examples or anything related to the topic General Statement Tips and Tricks General Statement Tips and Tricks

17 Writing an E Statement Writing an E Statement Check the DBQ Rule Book Check the DBQ Rule Book

18 This is a sentence or two that fills out the middle of your paragraph. Usually, it is best to explain the historical event(s) that caused the topic, or caused the events you will be writing about – For example, if it is an American Revolution DBQ, explain the French and Indian War – For example, if it is a Civil Rights DBQ, explain Plessy vs. Ferguson Writing a T Statement

19 To round out your introductory paragraph, write a thesis statement, which satisfies the task. In other words, you are answering the task by saying what you will be writing about. – For example, if the task says to discuss two topics, then mention the two topics you will be discussing. – This should be as many sentences as there are task bullets T Statement Tips T Statement Tips

20 The Thesis Statement should list the historical events/examples you will be discussing. – Start with “Some of the ways…include…” Example: “Discuss positive effects of technology in the United States.” …”Two examples of positive effects of technology include increased communication and manufacturing.” Make sure the examples you use in your thesis are the examples you will expand upon in your essay. Writing the Body Paragraphs Writing the Body Paragraphs

21 There should be several body paragraphs of a minimum of 4 sentences each. Use the TreeReeC format you have learned in English – T-Topic Sentence – Start to discuss one of your examples/events from your thesis – R – Reason – Explain how your topic sentence example relates to the task (for the first bullet) – E – Examples – Discuss it in detail…say everything you know FOR CERTAIN about the example/event – R – Reason – Explain the next example/event from your thesis (for the first bullet) – E – Examples – Discuss it in detail…say everything you know FOR CERTAIN about the example/event – C – Conclusion A Note on Topic and Conclusion Sentences A Note on Topic and Conclusion Sentences

22 Students tend to have the most trouble coming up with Topic and Conclusion sentences Topic Sentences: Simply introduce the first example you will be discussing Example: “The Tea Act is another example of British a action which led to the American Revolution.” Conclusion Sentences: Conclusions are broad sentences that wrap up what you are discussing Example: “The Tea Act and the Stamp Act are just two of many examples which led to the American Revolution.” Click here to see examples of quality DBQs Click here to see examples of quality DBQs Citing Documents

23 You must use one more than half of the documents in your essay, meaning, you must use information from at least 4-5 documents. If you use information from a document, you must cite that document in one of three ways. – End of sentence: In parentheses, write “doc ___”, after the sentence Example: Uncle Tom’s Cabin showed the hardships of slavery. (Doc. 4) – End of paragraph: In parentheses, write all the documents used in the paragraph Example: …The publishing of Uncle Tom’s Cabin was one of many contributing factors to sectionalism. (doc. 4, doc. 6) – In the wording: State that you found the information in the document Example: According to Document 2, Uncle Tom’s Cabin exposed the hardships of slavery. Writing a RIC Conclusion

24 Conclusion Paragraphs are written in the R.I.C. Style. – R: Restate Thesis – Reward your thesis in a way that lets the reader know you just proved something to them Start off with “As one can see…” or “In conclusion…” – I: Interesting Fact – Say any fun fact about the topic. – C: Concluding Sentence – The best C Sentences say where America is today because of the topic Example: Though racism still exists, African-Americans have now achieved equality because of the Civil Rights Movement
