Document Based Assessment for Global History
By Theresa C. Noonan.
To prepare students to write essay answers to document-based questions (DBQs), this practical activity book guides students step by step through the analysis of primary and secondary source quotations. Reproducible pages present DBQs addressing topics ranging from Ancient Greece to the spread of Islam, European colonisation, the Industrial Revolution, imperialism in India and Africa, and the decolonisation and independence movements of 1945–1975. For each topic, students are helped in the interpretation of half a dozen quotes, while teachers are provided with specific answer keys, a scoring rubric for the essays, and (sometimes) sample essays with suggested grades. Grades 9–12. 8" x 10½". J. Weston Walch. 193 pages. Second Edition.
