Six classroom-tested debates are featured in this innovative e-book. Built on primary sources, each debate asks students to step into the shoes of historical characters and argue for a position. As author Joseph T. Stuart says in the Introduction, "Debates have proven to be among the most successful tools in my experience as a teacher to encourage students to work with primary sources." Available via the Milestone Documents platform or through your college bookstore.
