Product Description
This 5-page document is designed to provide structure for an entire class debate about the ethical and societal question of man's involvement in generating human life. This debate serves the purpose of front-loading the content that Victor Frankenstein explores, as well as positioning students to read informational text in a literature driven class. This activity takes 2-4 class periods depending on traditional or block scheduling.

It addresses these Common Core standards: CCSS.SL.11-12.4, CCSS.RI.11-12.1, CCSS.W.11-12.7, CCSS.W.11-12.8, and CCSS.W.11-12.1.

The documents provided include a planning sheet for those for man's intervention and those against. The third sheet outlines roles and helps students determine who should do what with their research time. The fourth document outlines the course of the debate and designates how points should be attributed to teams.

The role of the teacher for this task is to take notes on the debate while students apply the rules of the debate. The teacher will award points accordingly and choose how to assign grades accordingly. I often make the winning team's points the point value of the assignment. That way if the losing team is very close, all class members can still achieve an A.

The final handout of this packet encourages a reflective writing task now that much information about this issue has been introduced.
