+ DBQ: Worth 25% APUSH DBQ needs to be written in a very particular way. It is *NOT* the AP Euro or World DBQ. Your APUSH DBQ writing should should mirror the following steps.
+ Step One: Read Question 15 minutes: JUST READ. Read the question carefully and do not misread Ex: In what ways did ideas and values held by Puritans influence he political, economic, and social development of the New England colonies from 1630 through the 1660’s?
+ Identify What key words or phrases are important?
+ Step Two: Brainstorm Before you read the documents, BRAINSTORM. You can list, write, chart, graph… *Think extensively about about what the question is asking you.
+ Step Three: Read and Code Ask yourself the following: 1. How can I use this? 1. What historical lens will I use? (Historical context, purpose, bias, point of view etc.) 1. How does this answer the question ?
+ Step Five: Write 1. You do not have to write five paragraphs per se. Be sure you have an Introduction with a thesis statement at the end of your paragraph. Your thesis should naturally transition your reader into your first main body paragraph. Your thesis should be complex and analytical. As should your essay. 2. *Budget time for a conclusion. You will get approx. 40 mins to complete your DBQ.
+ Appropriate Use of Historical “Lenses ” “H.A.P.P.Y” You only have to use ONE of the “analytical lenses” per doc. Yes you can use the same lens for each doc and yes you can alternate. Do not quote directly. Paraphrase and refer to your docs parenthetically at the end of your sentences. Ex. Blah blah blah (Doc A) In addition, do not openly refer to docs. (Ex. According to doc A, Doc A says etc.) Use all docs (but one) and you must have sustained outside information.
