The DBQ Project Method

Step 3: Clarifying the Question

Rewrite the question in your own words. Clarify any words or terms that would help someone better understand the question.


Document Analysis Sheets:

Building a Bridge from Document Analysis to Essay


What Should Document Analysis

Look Like?

Identifying and extracting relevant evidence that supports baby thesis

Understanding main idea and purpose of document.

Cross-referencing documents to corroborate and clarify argument

Identifying POV and bias to determine validity, credibility, and competence of author of document.


Document Analysis Steps

  • Source the Source

  • Note the Note

  • Backdrop the Doc (build context)

  • Close read the document (interrogate)

  • Make meaning of the document (interpret)

  • Use the document to help answer the question


Powell commissioned by US government during Reconstruction

Document B

Who is the focal point of this painting? How do you know?

Why would Washington “present” the soldiers to the CC?

What appears to be the mood of the soldiers?

What might the CC be thinking?


B

National Archives

Committee of Congress at Valley Forge

William Henry Powell

1866

x

Commissioned by US gov’t/to reunite the country

  • Washington “presenting” soldiers

  • Some soldiers are injured, some are without shoes

  • Soldiers holding up swords and lunging forward

  • CC have serious faces

  • George Washington is asking for help from Continental Congress

  • Washington’s army is suffering but hanging in there

  • CC Considering helping

Quit – I would quit because the conditions at Valley Forge are unhealthy and I don’t want to die.

Reenlist – I would stay because the men seem to be committed and Congress coming shows they care and will help. This gives me hope.

Soldiers at Valley Forge need help from CC

Poor conditions/Congressional support


How do you make an argument?

Document Analysis

Evidence

Inference

Argument

Evidence comes directly from the documents.

Inferences are conclusions reached based on the evidence.

An Argument summarizes and explains how the evidence & inferences answer the question.


Document Analysis Activity

Analyze document assigned as a group, completing a close read. Use the document analysis questions to interrogate the document. Mark up the document as you discuss.

Transfer document analysis to document analysis sheet.

Choose a spoke person to present document analysis to the whole class.


The DBQ Project Method

Step 5: Grouping the Documents

Write chicken-foot in one to two full sentences.


The Thrash Out:

Building a Bridge from Document Analysis to Essay


The DBQ Project Method

Step 6: Writing

The Thrash Out

Round #1 – probably a lot of opinion

Round #2 – want to see “evidence” used from documents

Round #3 – want to hear arguments being made, “so what?” “what does that explain?,” “why does that matter?”

Round #4 – try for counterargument and point of view

Whole Group Calibration

Read and score two WWI student essays using a common rubric. You will have 10 minutes to complete.

Presenter will call each element and calibrate the group.


Small Group Calibration

Number essays as a group. Make sure you are uniform.

Choose calibration leader.

Score papers 1-3 individually using common rubric.

Calibration leader then leads calibration of essay scores by discussing points given to each element.

Discuss student strengths and weaknesses after calibrating each paper.

Repeat process on the 4th and 5th essays using the holistic rubric.

Calibration leader leads discussion of scores given to each paper.

Discuss student strengths and weaknesses after calibrating each paper.


Writing Priorities

1. Organization of essay (Macro and Micro).

2. Effective Introduction and Conclusion.

3. Thesis and Baby Thesis as claim and sub-claim statements.

4. Appropriate use of documents as Evidence with Citation.

5. Clearly developed Arguments.

6. Point of View and Counterargument.

7. Style and Convention.


General Feedback Thoughts

Create a balance between seeing the potential in an essay and setting high expectations for what a student produces.

Create your own writing priorities.

Identify and communicate one or two achievements and one or two areas for growth. Keep it manageable for students.

Keep portfolios of student work and have each student visit theirs before each DBQ.

Have students begin to peer edit and self score.
