Analyzing A Writer's Stance: Defending Points of View in a Debate

Middle and high schoolers debate colleges' right to grant admissions based on legacy status. This point-of-view lesson plan uses a column from the New York Times about college admission policies as a springboard for a student debate. Pupils write in journals, participate in whole-class discussion, and then are divided into debate teams which must defend an assigned viewpoint.
