This section of the Teacher's Corner contains several sets of Document-Based Questions (DBQs) modeled on the New York State Regents Examinations in United States History and Government. The topics represented by the DBQs can be found in the 11th grade Core Curriculum. They are designed for the average student but can be used in an AP or Honors course. The DBQs are challenging and should more than adequately prepare the student to answer the DBQ on the NYS Regents exam. These DBQs are designed to simulate the interpretive thinking of historians. They ask real questions that contemporary historians are working on. The documents allow a variety of interpretations and the scaffolding questions allow multiple responses. Students should find the topics interesting and intellectually stimulating.
