Product Description

Get students engaged, researching, and debating the key A.P. United States History's Revolutionary War objectives through this Ranking Debate Activity. In fact, you can center your entire study of the Revolutionary War around this two-part, highly competitive and intellectual ranking debate.

This debate activity is competitive and sure to be a hit in your AP or secondary level classroom. In this debate, students receive 11 key prompts (built 100% around the APUSH Concepts spanning from 1754-1787) and determine which answer is the most significant. If students match the same rating as a professional Historian with expertise in the Revolutionary War, they earn 1 point. From there, they debate and provide evidence for their number one ranking. They can receive additional points for evidence and argumentation. The following debates breaks into two halves.

1st Half = French and Indian War and Road to Revolution (1754-1775)
