Discussing An Important Decision from History

🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV is open for new memberships through May 27th, 2022. Join today!


Students will think from two perspectives to discuss an important decision from history.


  1. First, students will list what they consider their historic person's most important decisions.
  2. Next, they'll pick the one decision they think is most controversial - not a bad decision, but a decision people could debate.
  3. Then they'll think from two perspectives who would disagree over this decision. Students will write out the main arguments of both sides.
  4. Finally, they'll write out a conversation between those two perspectives and end with a big idea - a statement both people could agree on.
