How to write A DBQ
This is considered the easiest of the essays to write. =) So don’t worry too much for this essay. I hope this helps some of you.
*50 minutes ( Ten to read, forty to write)
*Read analyze, GROUP by Point Of View
I think it would be best to refer to the document by the author but you can also use the number of the number, that’s okay too. (DOC#2)
When analyzing and grouping the documents keep in mind if the document might be biased, the date, the reliability, and the accuracy. If you have trouble analyzing documents, keep this in mind for each document:
*Short intro(leaner essay style)
The good thing about a DBQ not a lot of background is needed, you don’t need to recall that much. They usually give you a short background statement anyhow. So, just read, interpret, and group the documents.
*must have thesis
*support thesis w/ evidence from DOCS
*Must group DOCS AND NOT just summarize
E- Evidence (support)
A- All, use all the documents (
M- Meaning(understand document)
B- Biased(understand biased in documents) *POV*
A- Addiction document *Be specific*
If you have any questions, do ask.
