PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In the activity, students will read about, discuss, and explain the relationships or interactions between two or more individuals, events, ideas, or concepts in historical texts about the right for a state to secede from the Union.

The activity looks at opposing viewpoints from three different people (primary sources): James Buchanan, Jefferson Davis, and Frederick Douglass. The Zip file contains a Power Point, a handout with the texts, and a graphic organizer.

After going through the PP, discussing the viewpoints, and filling out the graphic organizer, I split my class into three groups; one for each viewpoint. I have them further discuss their assigned viewpoint/person in their groups. After that, we have our own debate during which we express and debate the three viewpoints.

I love how my students stay engaged and think throughout the activity; especially the debate at the end. My students always enjoy this activity and your's will too!
