Students will research both sides of a controversial issue (doping in sports, school uniforms, animal cruelty, etc.) that has sparked an ethical debate. Students will first have to conduct research on their selected topic. After research is complete, they will then be creating an argumentative essay to demonstrate their stance/perspective. Then in an argumentative essay, students will take a stand on the chosen topic/issue and use evidence from their research to support their claim.
