EL 200: Midterm Project Ideas

I would like to get an, outside, debate happening in EL 200. What I mean is, have a subject related to the election (war on terrorism in Afghanistan), have two sides of two to three people, one side is for keeping troops in Afghanistan the other is for pulling them out. Have the students of EL 200 sit by, while taking notes, give them a deadline and produce a nice piece about the debate on war, focusing on terrorism. Or else, focus on another subject, social security, medical insurance, or any other global related issue.
I would like to have veterans of the recent conflict in Iraq come in and speak about how they were, once, gung ho (patriotic) about fighting for their country and now are faced with long term disabilities and deformities. How their feelings changed about their nation and their notorious leader.
