Product Description
Does might make right? According to the Athenians it does. This activity provides a way of integrating technology, primary sources and even current events. I was AMAZED at how well the students did with the assignment. There's plenty of opportunity to extend the learning to more modern events also.

I had each student read the debate and answer the questions for homework. They're able to put together their decision quicker if they do some of the work outside of class. They also had to use Marking in the Text Strategies to show they actually read and didn't just copy someone's answers to the question. The next day I had them get into small groups to discuss the issue at hand. I walked around and checked their comprehension of the issue and each sides' arguments.
