This Harry S Truman Biography tells students about the 33rd President's unexpected rocket like ride to the White House and his actions during WWII. It concludes with five thought provoking questions and an in class activity that asks students to debate Truman's choice to use the atomic bombs (using facts from the reading and other sources). You can choose to turn the debate into a writing activity (such as an essay). This activity can also be used as homework.
