Unleashing Inquiry: Leveraging DBQs to Meet the Needs of All Students
“I read it, but I don’t get it” sounds very familiar if you teach struggling readers. Document analysis is difficult for students of any age and ability, as they not only have to read the document but also dig deeper for meaning using background knowledge and context, source analysis, and their own inferencing skills, not to mention corroboration between documents. This session dives deeper into differentiating and scaffolding document analysis and the writing process for all learners. A special focus will examine how teachers can leverage DBQs for the new STAAR exam requirements and question types.
