The Debate over Slavery in the United States

This The Debate over Slavery in the United States lesson plan also includes:

Secondary learners research the arguments that were used to oppose and support the institution of slavery in the United States.

Since one half the class will be in the ostensibly uncomfortable situation of advocating for slavery, keep records so next time those participants can assume a more comfortable stance.
