Activity book with reproducible pages
Connect with a representative to create a custom curriculum for your district.
Frame key U.S. history topics in a ready-to-use debate format that is fun, challenging, and instructive.
Step-by-step directions introduce three different debating styles—the basic team vs. team debate, the multiple team debate (in which teams debate open-ended rather than yes-or-no questions), and the teacher vs. student debate—and offer ideas on how to expand, extend, and adapt each debate. The book also includes a scoring rubric, a sequence and timing summary, helpful hints, and follow-up questions. Sample debates:, "Which was the more successful colony: Jamestown or Plymouth?", "What event contributed most to starting the Civil War?", and "Should America have dropped the atomic bombs?"
