Based around a group of visual and written primary sources that conflict, Debating the Documents helps students to learn how to compare and contrast sources through careful research. Necessitating students to understand bias, historical background, and the challenges that come with interpreting the historical record, students use worksheets that will guide them through the documents. Finally, the worksheets can be used for an in-class debate. A final essay project and overheads of all sources are included. 22 reproducible pages, softcover. Grades 4-8.
