Common Core

ProCon.org

http://www.procon.org/

 

This is a great site that explores the pros and cons of controversial issues.  

 

Each issue has a core question, pros and cons in the form of short readings from primary sources, and quotations for both the pro and con sides by people of consequence.  There are also links to each source's biography. Each issue also has a link to a "Did You Know" section with interesting facts about the issue, an historical timeline, and a place for students to leave comments. Some of the issues also have videos.
