Product Description
Get students thinking about why they study American Literature with this whole-class research and debate project. Students will argue for or against the study of American Literature after researching their side of the argument, finding evidence to support their side, and developing questions to ask of the opposite side.

Great for use at the beginning of the year, at the end of a term, or any time you think students need to understand the reasons behind what you do in your American Literature course.

The following items are included in the download (.pdfs that cannot be edited):

* Teacher instructions page (1 page)
* Sample answer key (1 page)
