Abstract: 
This article explores the use of Structured Academic Controversies (SAC) in the teaching of secondary Social Studies. Social Studies as a subject abounds with many controversial issues ranging from local issues such as Singapore's separation from Malaysia and other issues like conflicts in Sri Lanka and
Northern Ireland and the United Nations as a world organisation. An example of a Social Studies lesson which has been trialed in a neighbourhood school will be provided. Implications for the use of SAC in Social Studies classrooms will also be discussed.
