Humanities 7 – Unit 6 China’s One Child Policy Debate


Unit 6 - China's One Child Policy Debate

In this unit, you will consider the implications of China’s “One Child Policy.” The one-child policy has its supporters and its opponents. On which side do you stand? In this debate you will examine several documents. The documents cannot tell the whole story, but they do provide an introduction. As a group you will present a recommendation to the President of the Communist Party, and ultimately answer the question – China’s one-child policy: Was it a good idea?
