PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A source-based position paper (essay) with rubric related to the debate surrounding the United States' use of the atomic bombs against Japan in order to end World War Two (WWII). The source offers an argument on the use of the atomic bombs and the position paper (essay) requires students to analyze the source and establish their own argument either for or against the use of the atomic bombs against Japan during World War Two (WWII).

The included rubric is out of 30 marks and the categories focus on student analysis, argumentation, historical evidence and writing skills.

A great tool for use when the students have already learned about the debate/issue of the use of the atomic bombs against Japan during World War Two (WWII). Great for fostering critical thinking and reasoning skills as well as an assessment tool to assess thorough understanding of the debate surrounding the use of the atomic bombs during World War Two.

I use it with my classes as an assessment tool after learning about the historical debate of the use of the atomic bombs. Allows students to explore the issue and form their own argument.
