FOR GOOGLE CLASSROOM

Included in this resource:
• Title page

• Christopher Columbus Hero/Villain reading passage with positive/negatives graphic organizer
• Debate Worksheet: Students will be placed into debate groups upon teacher's discretion; will gather information based on their side's argument - Evidence worksheet included

Students will analyze and evaluate the effect Christopher Columbus had on the world and if he should be considered a hero or a villain

Adheres to Social Studies Common Core Standards - research, application, literacy, vocabulary; writing/discussion based on argument
Differentiation: graphic organizer; cooperative (students will be placed into debate groups based upon teacher's discretion)

★★ NOTE: When I execute this lesson, I usually split it up into two days: Day One giving the students time to create their arguments in groups, and Day Two allowing them to argue each side with closing arguments and submitting their application questions answers
