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