AP History Writing- the DBQ (for US, European and World History students)

This two week workshop will introduce/refresh AP History students on the Document Based Question Essay. The DBQ is a critical part of the AP History test, worth 25% of the total exam score. Mrs. Newman and Ms. Noah have served as AP Readers for the College Board for a collective total of over 15 years, and both will be scoring the 2023 AP exam in Kansas City this spring. Armed with the newest information after participating in professional development activities with the College Board leadership, they plan to prepare you for your current or future classes. This workshop is suitable for students enrolled in AP United States, European or World History courses - currently or in the future.


Workshop participants will become familiar with the DBQ Rubric, and will learn how to successfully meet each criterion set forth by the College Board. They will also practice each skill separately and receive personal feedback from the instructors. At the end of the workshop, each student will be able to complete a full DBQ, receive detailed feedback and will be ready to take on any of AP History courses!
