Structured Academic Controversy (SAC) in the History Classroom

This Structured Academic Controversy (SAC) in the History Classroom lesson plan also includes:

SAC is a specific approach to discussing history and controversial issues. Rather than adhering to an either/or debate-style paradigm, it fosters speaking and constructivist listening to enable learners to build consensus through collaborative discussion. The specific discussion point in this resource is "Was Abraham Lincoln a racist?" but you could easily adapt it to any issue relevant to your current curriculum. A refreshing alternative to standard discussion strategies.
