Weighing the War

Study opposing viewpoints with this lesson, which examines President Bush's September 2004 address at the United Nations. Middle schoolers study the text of the address, and then stage formal debates arguing for or against the reasons to go to war in Iraq, as well as the outcomes of the president's decisions. Though dated, this lesson could be interesting to do as a way to examine the predicted effects of the military action, in contrast to what actually happened.
