The Debate over Slavery in the United States

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.
