Product Description
These statements will challenge your students! Each statement addresses a controversial topic in American history. Many of these statements are intentionally worded to create debate and to force students to look at both sides of an issue. At times they make students a bit uncomfortable as they are forced to defend points of view they may not agree with - an important skill to develop if we are to look at history objectively!

How to use this assignment:
a. As a debate starter in class. Have some students argue the support side, others the refute side.
b. As a bullet list, quick write activity. Have students write 2 or more statements to support and refute the statement.
c. As a writing assignment. Have students write a persuasive essay supporting and refuting the statement.
d. Create your own way to use these power statements in your class!

Great for Social Studies and ELA classes! MS Word for easy editing.
