Overview

For over thirty years, Greenhaven Press's Opposing Viewpoints series has been the gold standard for students to attain issue awareness and critical thinking and reading skills. Now, Introducing Issues with Opposing Viewpoints applies this patented format in a visually appealing, accessible series that will allow students of all levels to experience its benefits. In addition to pro/con articles, other features help students process and question the authors' credibility, research, and argumentation techniques. Active reading questions preface each essay, requiring the student to approach the material thoughtfully and carefully. Focus boxes at the end of every viewpoint ask students to assess and compare opposing views. Sidebars provide at-a-glance statistics, while useful charts, graphs, and cartoons supplement each article and offer readers multiple formats for gleaning information on the topic. Additional features such as a glossary and an appendix of facts further enlighten students on the topic. Bibliographies, Web sites, and a list of organizations to contact encourage students to explore the topic beyond the book. Comprehensive, engaging, and thought-provoking, Introducing Issues with Opposing Viewpoints books aim to open readers' minds to the critically divergent views that comprise our world's most important debates.
