Summary
More and more state boards of education around the country are incorporating document-based questions (DBQs) into their standardized tests. A DBQ is a term that refers to any information in print - it could be a contract, a table or graph, a newspaper article, or even a political cartoon. Today's students have to be able to analyze and make sense of these documents. This e-book is designed to provide targeted practice using a six-step method of writing that produces excellent Social Studies or English essays. It teaches children how to interpret text and graphic information faster, avoid redundancy and cliches, revise and edit a document-based essay, and use a graphic organizer to draft a better essay. The book presents sample document-based essays in history, sample DBQ essays, and important definitions and terminology all test-takers must know
