Document Research activity: Each student will be placed on a team of 4 members. The team will be asked to locate 16 documents that address the evolution of terrorism in the United States from the 1970’s to the current date. The students will be asked to look for documents that led to government restrictions, oil crisis and/or conflicts. The groups will develop a DBQ using their documents, a rubric and required information list. The students will exchange their DBQ with another group and answer in class. At the end of class, the author of the DBQ will give a brief “reporting out” of critical information to answer their DBQ.
