    “Mr. Davis’s military instincts still predominate, and his eager wish was to have joined the army instead of being elected president.”–Arthur James Freemantle

    “Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal….” 1863

  • DBQ - How Revolutionary was the American Revolution?

    Posted by Evinn Beck on 1/11/2019

    DBQ 1: HOW REVOLUTIONARY was the AMERICAN REVOLUTION?

    11/13/201712/15/2017

    Students and Parents:

    The DBQ Essay will be taught in class January 11th and 14th. I will go over Documents and discuss them in class.  Adequate class time will be provided for the majority of the essay to be worked on at school. Students continuing to have questions should ask me specific questions in class. 

    THE DBQ ESSAY WILL BE DUE NO LATER THAN February 15th for A-Day and February 18th B-Day CLASSES.

     

    PRINT THIS: HOW REVOLUTIONARY WAS THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION?

     

    PROVIDED FOR YOU IN CLASS: DBQ OUTLINE IN CASE YOU LOSE YOURS

     

    PRINT THIS: DOCUMENT ANALYSIS SHEET:

     

    THE DBQ ESSAY WILL BE DUE NO LATER THAN February 15th for A-Day and February 18th B-Day CLASSES.

     

    DBQ FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: 

    1. WHAT IS A DBQ?

    DBQ stands for Document Based Question, and we will be writing an essay to answer the question.

    2. HOW LONG MUST MY DBQ BE?

    Our DBQ for this unit will consist of a 5 paragraph essay with the accompanying prewriting, outlining, and drafting work that is necessary to produce 8th grade level writing. 

    3. WHERE DO I FIND THE INFORMATION TO ANSWER THE DOCUMENT BASED QUESTION?

    Careful study of documents (1-10) in the link above along with the answers to guiding questions I provided will help you formulate your answer to the document based question. 

    4. WHAT IS A CLAIM?

    Your "claim" will be your answer to the Document Based Question, and will become your "thesis statement" that will drive your essay. 

    5. HOW DO I WRITE MY CLAIM?

    You will decide based on the Background Information and evidence provided in the documents if you feel the American Revolution was "Revolutionary" or not. Was it a conservative revolution? Was it a radical revolution? Were some parts conservative and others radical? Why? How can you back your claim with evidence from the documents

    6. HOW DO I ANSWER MY CLAIM IN 5 PARAGRAPH ESSAY FORM?

    After considering all available background information and evidence in documents, you will formulate your answer to the Document Based Question. You will write a claim answering the question. Your claim will focus on 3 of the 6 available analytical categories. Your claim will be your thesis statement that will dictate the 3 body paragraphs in your essay. In the three body paragraphs, you will use evidence from the documents to support your claim. 

    6A. Why do you continue to emphasize that we must "use evidence from the documents"?

    The Mississippi College and Career Readiness Standards for Writing in History/Social Studies/Science/and Technical Subjects - Grades 6-8 that are being evaluated will be listed on the rubric provided to guide student writing. 

    7. WHAT ARE THE 6 ANALYTICAL CATEGORIES?

    Political Independence, Social Equality, Economics: Wealth and Political Power, Slavery and Free Blacks, Women, Native Americans

    8. HOW WILL I BE GRADED?

    I will post a link to a rubric here on this blog page and distribute one to you in class. The printed rubric must be affixed to your printed DBQ and handed in by the due date. I will not be responsible for DBQ's that are emailed to me; students are responsible for handing in their printed work. 

    9. I'M STILL LOST... I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO WRITE.....
