C-SPAN Classroom Deliberations

Social studies teachers, debate coaches, and writing instructors may want to check out C-SPAN's Classroom Deliberations. This collection of resources, endorsed by the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS), is designed to engage young people with a number of contemporary controversial issues. This resource collection consists of two components. Instructors can browse this collection by Issue; recent issues featured include "fake news," the Electoral College, and the death penalty. Each collection contains multiple video clips from C-SPAN, including interviews, town halls, and congressional speeches. These materials are accompanied by a lesson plan and related classroom materials, such as vocabulary charts and graphic organizers. The Classroom Deliberation page also includes links to outside resources that describe procedures for classroom activities instructors may want to pursue in regard to these topics, including student position papers and Structured Academic Controversies (SAC).
