Social Studies Age Level High School (16 to 18 years old)

Students will be assigned to argue for the dropping of the atomic bomb, or against the dropping of the atomic bomb. Your task is to find at least 5 (6 for the against group since we modeled an example for them) of these resources that will help you form your 6-8 minute oral argument. While you are filling out your graphic organizer, make sure to click on the actual resource to see the guiding question to consider (it will have a little "1" next to the picture - click on that). If you decide that you will use this resource to argue your side, on your graphic organizer: 1). answer the question to consider and 2). note how you will use this resource in your presentation.

If you would like to fill out your graphic organizer electronically, here is the link - PLEASE MAKE A COPY:
