Civil War Debates. These Civil War Debates are going to allow your students to flex their intellectual muscle by having a formal debate on issues that were either part of the Civil War, led up to the Civil War, or exist today but stem from the Civil War. This week-long activity is bound to ramp up your classroom discussions. I have done this type of activity for over 15 years and look forward to it every time it comes around!

What I love about this lesson the most is that students get to voice their own opinions without being criticized by anyone. It provides them with a safe platform to talk about an important issue in history/today's society as well as an issue they feel passionately about.
Included in this activity are:
-25 Civil War Debatable topics on Cardstock to be displayed
-The same 25 Cardstock topics but on PowerPoint
-Debate Survey for students to figure out what they believe
-Grading Evaluation that is simple and to the point
-Tips for Your Debate sheet to help students with writing
-Lesson Plan that explains what I have done for this activity
-Take Your Own Stance sheet for students to fill out during debates
The one thing I appreciate the most about the activity is the discussion that is held after the debates are concluded. For one full week the students will hopefully be more aware of how the of issues from the past connect to the issues that are currently part the world in which they live today.
