American Revolution: Road to the Revolution Document-Based Questions (DBQs)

American Revolution

Document-Based Questions (DBQs) are a great way to expose students to primary sources as well as to make them think about an event in history and respond to it.
This unit can be used in a few ways. You can project the full-page images on my board so that we can discuss them, and then the students answer the DBQ in their notebooks. I have also included the DBQs in printable format so that your students can answer on paper and digital Google Forms that you can send electronically.
I like to use DBQs to introduce an event or topic, but you can also use it as review. These spark great class discussion, but can easily be used for a grade, too! It is up to you how to make these fit your needs.
All images in this unit are considered public domain, so they are not copyright-protected.
