This video is about conquering the Document-Based Question on the AP History tests. It seems daunting, but the DBQ is perhaps the easiest way to get points on the exam. It tests your ability to make a coherent historical argument based on a set of documents. Here are my tips for writing a good DBQ. Enjoy!

Get a full understanding of the AP US History Document-Based Question Contextualization point from the July 2017 rubric. This video will breakdown everything you need to know, including the most common mistakes students make. Chris Averill has been an AP US History grader for 24 years. Paul Faeh helped redesign the new rubric. As DBQ question leader, combined, they were in charge of grading 450,000 (approx) DBQ essays in 2017. Contextualization is the idea of what they're looking for, do you understand this in the broader topic of events of what's going on? So for example, if you have a question that is directly asking you about the causes to the revolution, can you connect this to the bigger ideas of what were going on locally, regionally, or across the country, or across the world that was influencing people to rebel? The difference between contextualization and background is that background tends to be more specific as to historical subjects, proper nouns, etc. with no eliciting of how those particular facts connect to the question's trend or development. It operates more as a factual piece of information. The broader historical context is looking, can you take a situation like a revolution happening and connected to themes, events that are going on that are not just maybe local to that area of this question. When I tell my students concerning the contextualization point is to make sure that they think about the larger social economic and political trends occurring during the time frame of the question or just prior to it. Bring the reader into this time period. So here's an example of a contextualization statement that does not get over the bar for the point. So on sample B, the student wrote, "Enlightenment ideas were about liberty and individual rights. They began in the 18th century. The colonists thought that their rights were being taken away.
