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. After being assigned either pro- or anti-slavery positions, they compose written arguments and participate in a classroom debate on American slavery. 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.
