High schoolers analyze the main themes of President Bush's UN Speech and discussion of the NewsHour report on the Iraq Debate. For this debate lesson, students answer pre-listening questions and view a transcript of the speech. In groups of two or three they take the side of a member of the UN or the National Security Council. High schoolers also create synonyms for the terms used and create sentences using the terms correctly.
