This debate will walk students through the two plans that contributed to The Great Compromise. Students will debate two specific topics related to each plan. Included in this packet are the debate guidelines, a rubric for scoring the debate, websites to be used for research, and a note-catcher to be used while writing each section of the debate. This is a fun and interesting way for students to learn the differences of the New Jersey Plan and the Virginia Plan! This will also help students understand who supported each plan and why!
