This is a Word Document that has two columns. Students figure out what the other side of the debate would have said at the time. They will complete both sides of the argument from the North's point of view and the South's point of view on: Dred Scott, Slavery in the territories, Election of 1860, powers of the federal government, succession, and more.
If some of the material was not explicitly taught, you can allow students to research both sides of the argument.
One more idea...USE AS NOTES!
