The only kids in my school doing DBQs are in AP classes. If that's the case, I can't help you. But capitalization and proper spelling goes a long way.


I'm not sure what the problem is. Do you not know how to quote a document?

If you quote a document then you need to state who it is written by and their perspective on the situation. When I used to write them I would generally have an intro paragraph, 2 or 3 grouping paragraphs, then a paragraph about a document that would have been helpful in writing the essay, then a conclusion paragraph. Hope that answers your questions.

Ask your teacher. DBQ's (at least in my classes) don't always follow standard citation rules. You want to find out how THEY want it done - not what the regular way is.
