Doing The DBQ
The Essential DBQ Guide
The Document-Based Question (DBQ) poses a challenge for many students. The DBQ scoring rubric awards 7 possible points. Between 2017 and 2019 average scores ranged from a “low” of 2.22 to a “high” of 2.54. Low DBQ scores make it difficult to earn an overall APUSH score of 4 or 5.
Doing the DBQ is designed to help you write high-scoring essays. The book contains 12 practice DBQs. Each DBQ is followed by an annotated essay enabling you to understand how the essay fulfills rubric requirements.
But what if you are unprepared for the prompt or don’t understand all the documents? No problem! The final section of Doing the DBQ explains and illustrates a unique Plan B strategy designed to help you earn 4 of the 7 rubric points.
