The Lincoln-Douglas Debates of 1858
by Jennifer Erbach
Students will examine the transcripts of the 1858 Lincoln-Douglas debates and create a platform for each candidate in the 1858 Senate race. Students will utilize the candidates' arguments to explore the historical and political impact of the following:
  • popular sovereignty compromise of 1850 fugitive slave law Dred Scott case Kansas-Nebraska Act Lecompton constitution Missouri Compromise
Note: students should have at least a working knowledge of these terms prior to this lesson Introduction: Think about the elections of government officials such as senators, governors, and the president. What are some key issues that voters are concerned about today? (Ex: abortion, stem cell research, campaign finance reform, taxes, education, etc.) Very often newspapers or private groups will publish a chart of each candidate's stand on key issues, their platform, prior to a major election. (May want to show the class an example from a recent election). Part I: Imagine you are a citizen in the state of Illinois during the Senate race of 1858. (Remember: at this time, representatives to Congress were not chosen by a direct popular election the way they are today. Eligible voters elected representatives to the Illinois state legislature. The state legislature in turn, voted to elect Illinois' representatives to Congress). There are two major candidates running to represent Illinois in the U.S. Senate, Republican Abraham Lincoln and Democrat Stephen A. Douglas. Based on what you have been learning about the events leading up to the Civil War, what are some of the key issues that you as an Illinois citizen in 1858 might be concerned about? As a class, create a list of these issues. Encourage students to be specific. Examples:

    Students will understand the following:
    Scientists are conducting experiments to verify the powers attached to herbs and other plants by native peoples. A reader must evaluate the accuracy and biases of all so-called scientific studies, especially those reported only on the Web. Materials
    For this lesson, you will need:
    Access to the Internet Procedures
    Make sure students understand that the bulk of prescription and over-the-counter drugs used in this country these days are synthetic compounds. There has always been interest in naturally occurring drugs—those that are made from plants. Point out to students that even with its long history, the subject of finding useful medicines among plants in the rain forest (and in other ecological systems) raises controversial responses from some quarters. While more and more Western physicians and other scientists are closely examining the benefits of some plants for some patients, other parties believe that native cures can be effective only for the companies that make the plants commercially available to the public. What is the truth about plants from the rain forest and other biospheres? Discuss with students how they would go about using the Internet to find material about new or potential uses of plants as medicines. Where would they begin? By going straight to Web sites hosted by pharmaceutical companies? By doing keyword searches?

    16. Evolution Vs. Intelligent Design - Is Evolution Science Or Religion? - The Debat
    Proponents of Intelligent Design want you their concept taught in school if evolution is taught because they claim that's fair. But creationism and intelligent design has not basis
    Prior to the mid-1990s, conservative Christians tried in vain to force the teaching of creationism, the Christian concept of how the world and the life on it began, in the public schools. They were rebuffed at every turn by the courts on constitutional grounds. So, around 1995, the fundamentalists came up with the idea of intelligent design . It's premise was that there is so much irreducible complexity in living things that there must have been an intelligence behind their creation. It couldn't have happened by chance events, they claimed. And today, the intelligent design proponents are gaining ground in many states and local school districts across the country. Their arguments sound plausible on the surface, but in fact, the whole concept of ID is based on showing the perceived weaknesses in the theory of evolution. So, by default, they claim intelligent design is the better explanation and should at least be given equal footing with evolution in the public schools. Intelligent design has no basis in science whatsoever. And its proponents do not really claim it has scientific merit. Their point is that evolution is taken on faith, too. And since it is taught in science class, so should ID.

    Lesson Plans Language Arts General Raging Debates As we near the end of the year, tempers are hot and everyone is stressed. As students complete final assignments and tests, you may be searching for a constructive classroom activity that doesn't require a high level of planning. Consider a debate! Tackle a current event or a legal battle and you're sure to start a conversation. Before you jump in though, consider these tips from some of our T2T contributors... Karen "Maybe you could just split the group and assign them roles to play. (On the topic of "Violence in Films") One group could be actors, the other a group of concerned parents. One group could be directors, the other teens who want tighter regs; one group could be industry execs, the other a group of movie critics. Or.........try any combination of the above. Once the groups have been assigned, you could just propose a resolution that you create. Then, the debate could start from there." - Wade
    "You might have them write out their thoughts from both points of view. In that way they have 1. thought of counter arguments and 2. they are ready when you randomly assign them a side to defend. I've done it with my 5th graders and it works out ok." -

Delivering a Persuasive Speech - Students need to understand that how they say something and how they physically present themselves are just as important as what they say. By understanding the dynamics involved in effective persuasive speaking, students will improve their overall confidence in communicating.
    Delivering a Persuasive Speech - Demonstrate the appropriate classroom public speaking and listening skills (e.g., body language, articulation, listening to be able to identify specific examples of the speaker's coordination of talking and action) that would be necessary to influence or change someone's mind or way of thinking about a topic.
