||The DBQ Project Method provides a framework of best practices that guides teachers and students to read smart, think straight, and write clearly. The DBQ Project utilizes a 6-Step Method and delivers this methodology in all DBQs and Mini-Qs. Each step builds on students’ curiosity and increases motivation and confidence to answer a compelling, authentic question. Teachers across the country are using the DBQ Project with elementary, middle school, and high school students. Teacher scaffolding to serve the social studies learning experience and to meet the students' skill level will be key for successful implementation. DBQ - Document Based Questions.
