About the Site
This PBS Web site is a follow up to a Frontlinetelevision broadcast on the debate over whales in captivity. Two sides in the debate are presented, although you may want to preview and paraphrase the arguments for students. You may also want to explore other parts of the site for additional information to be used in a class debate.
What to Do
Before opening the site, present the question to students and discuss their answers.
