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.

In which John Green teaches you about the American Revolution and the American Revolutionary War, which it turns out were two different things. John goes over the issues and events that precipitated rebellion in Britain's American colonies, and he also explores the ideas that laid the groundwork for the new American democracy. Find out how the tax bill from the Seven Years War fomented an uprising, how the Enlightenment influenced the Founding Fathers, and who were the winners and losers in this conflict.(hint: many of the people living in the Colonies ended up losers) The Revolution purportedly brought freedom and equality to the Thirteen Colonies, but they weren't equally distributed. Also, you'll learn about America's love affair with commemorative ceramics and what happens when rich white guys take the reins from reins white guys, and put together a society of, by, and for rich white guys.

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.
