For the 2021 AP European History exam, the College Board is returning to the standard Document-Based Question (DBQ) rubric that was released during the 2017-2018 academic year. I have created a user-friendly one-page DBQ rubric that teachers are welcome to use in their classrooms.

AP Euro DBQ Rubric Explanation Video
In this video, I explain all seven points of the latest AP European History DBQ Rubric.
Teachers who subscribe to my Eight Month Writing Clinic can share the instructional videos with their students. In this clinic, I will model how to earn every point on the DBQ and LEQ.
Revised AP Euro DBQs
I have revised several old DBQs to conform to the format of the redesigned AP Euro exam. These DBQs are available to teachers who join the AP Euro Teachers email list. Please use an institutional email to sign up so that we can keep these revised DBQs in the hands of teachers.
