this is my flagship lesson. I am very proud of this. No one should graduate high school in America without being part of this amazing class debate project. Your students become Leaders and Voting Blocs of the 1840's as they seek to solve the nation's expansion problems. 5 Leaders and 5 Voting Blocs compete for votes. This project lasts up to two weeks and is superior learning for everyone. Invite your Principal to observer what REAL history teaching looks like.
