DBQs about the Second Plague Pandemic

Multiple Day Lesson

The DBQs here began as distance learning lessons in the Spring of 2021. I have continued to use a version of that assignment with on-level World History students, as a “DBQ for Everyone.” I have presented this lesson as a professional development session which aims to provide participants with a better understanding of historical content and pedagogy.

On Demand DBQ

I have also taken excerpts from primary source documents to create a DBQ for students to write on demand, in class. In the style of an AP World History DBQ.
