  • Unit 7 test: this will be in the form of a recorded oral debate on the following resolution. Partners and positions -- pro or con -- to be assigned on the day of the debate, so prepare to argue BOTH sides of your resolution. You may bring in with you a 3" x 5" notecard (one side only) and this is ALL you may have (except a computer for recording your debate). I have these if you need it. The debate will be limited to 15 minutes, and will not have a formal structure. You will be expected to seize every opportunity to argue your thesis, but shouting over your opponent will lose you marks. Think about our "fishbowl" discussions and your Unit 6 oral quizzes, as well as your essay writing lessons. How many strong arguments do you need to prove your thesis? How will you organize them? Is it enough to simply "preach" at your opponent and ignore what they say, or should you respond to (rebut) their arguments? Each of these topics has been chosen because there is no "right" answer, and both sides can be (and WERE) argued strongly.
  1. A block: The US should have entered the war earlier.
  2. D block: The Nazis were the only ones who should be held responsible for the Holocaust.
  3. F block: World War II was inevitable.

The test should not take you too much time to prepare for. Additional homework:

Why do you think this has happened? What do you think of the idea that the growing gap between the rich and poor in the industrialized world never materialized (see p. 270) because of the Union movement (the formation of trades unions who unite to demand better working conditions for workers) and reform laws (to improve conditions for workers, eg. safety requirements, limits on the length of the working day, minimum wages)?
