The DBQ Project was founded in 2000 to support teachers and students in learning to read smart, think straight, and write more clearly. As teachers, we believe all students can develop high-level critical thinking skills if they have consistent instruction and a chance to practice. We also believe that when we provide teachers with materials that blend educational best practices and content-specific questions, we promote and support transformational change in our schools.
History Colorado has been working on a digital badge and online exhibit project for the last two years.
