Product Description

This is a set of lesson materials that culminates in a class debate about the legacy of the major industrialists such as Rockefeller, Carnegie, Vanderbilt, etc. Students will: Learn about their careers during the Industrial Revolution, analyze different viewpoints, be assigned a position to take, collaborate within teams, prepare main arguments, peer review each other's reasoning, and will participate in an academic debate that is guided by moderator questions (included). The objective is to help students think critically, learn to articulate a view, and relate to the other side.

The debate materials are titled "Debate to Relate" because we place strong emphasis on students learning how to not only argue their own points, but to understand other perspectives. Students practice how to concede opposing points, develop nuance, and understand where others are coming from.

  • Overview
  • Thorough Lesson Plan (5 pages)
  • Point of View Handout
  • Reaction / Pair-Share Sheet
  • Group Collaboration Sheet
