This first tested DBQ is not meant to crush or kill anyone. I want my students to be able to write without fear of failure this time. The basic rubric that I will be working with looks like this:
60 points - Multiple paragraph essay answer
10 points - Thesis
10 points - Support of Thesis (reference to documents, at least 1/2 of them)
10 points - Showing quality prior knowledge of the Industrial Revolution
10 points - Conclusion (restating of thesis and driving home your points)
When you do the DBQ in AP class it will be timed.
The first 10 minutes are silent (no writing) and only reading of the questions. You are not allowed to write until the first 10 minutes are elapsed.
