Product Description
Great for APUSH and AP EURO - comparing multiple perspectives on the same topic in history is an important component of the historical thinking skill COMPARISON.

With this activity students will individually explore a perspective on a topic in history and compile a list of five arguments made by the author. Next, with a partner, students will negotiate their list to the top three arguments. Then, a group of four will share their lists of three arguments and pare it down to their number one argument. They will follow these same steps for the second perspective.

On the backside of the worksheet, groups will identify the main idea of the text using no more than 20 words (forcing them to focus on the main idea). Following are four discussion questions to facilitate higher levels of learning and synthesis.

Any two opposing viewpoints may be used with this worksheet in any subject.
