Welcome to the Teacher's Corner! Feel free to browse through the Document-Based Questions and Teaching Strategies.

We currently have more than thirty comprehensive lesson plans with over a hundred lesson ideas and twelve Document-Based Question units in the Teacher's Corner, as well as links for other classroom uses and teaching links. Some of the lesson plans refer to resources that are only available on the subscription website available from Alexander Street Press. We hope these assignments help you make productive use of the material we have gathered on the Women and Social Movements website. Please let us know how successful these assignments have been in your courses and share with us other ways you have used the website in your classes. Good luck in your teaching!

Document-based Questions
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.
