The Debate on Slavery

Students research the debate over slavery while some students take the pro-slavery side and others the anti-slavery side. They take the role of a character such as a plantation owner, a legislator, a free Black, a slave, or a northern abolitionist to research and portray. Students also debate on the issue of slavery, presenting their positions from the point of view of their character.

I use Lesson Planet for supplementary activities/projects every week. I'm currently researching for a current events rubric and found several options. It's great!
