A Turn Towards A Revolution

Debate Preparation

Work Time

Darnay and his uncle see the world quite differently. In order to help you see their points of view, prepare a mini-debate in which you defend the side that your teacher assigns.

  • Join whichever side of the debate you are assigned.
    • Side One: Darnay and those who seek revolution.
    • Side Two: The Marquis and those who would preserve the aristocrats’ rule.
  • Independently, look through the novel, using not only the chapter that you have just read but also all of the previous sections.
  • Write down your various ideas, making sure you have text references to support all of your thinking.
  • Share your findings with the rest of your group.
