• Application/Closing/Higher Order Thinking Question for student understanding - Your opinion: John Brown...hero or villain?
• Answer Key for Teachers

Students will research, analyze, and use their critical thinking skills to read the passages and complete the scafolding quetions. They will use details from the text and knowledge of Social Studies to brainstorm details why John Brown was a hero or villain.

★ NOTE: You can group your students according to your discretion. I like to group students and assign them to a side - hero or villain. They would then brainstorm and argue details from that perspective. It definitely ensues a lively debate!

★ I split this lesson into two days - one day for readings and creation of arguments, the other for a debate!

Adheres to Social Studies Common Core Standards - research, application, literacy, vocabulary, argument

Differentiation: scaffolding questions, cooperative (may work with a partner(s) according to teacher's discretion for scaffolding questions and activities)
