Introducing Issues with Opposing Viewpoints

This series is inspired by the highly acclaimed Opposing Viewpoints series, which explores important issues, placing expert opinions from a wide range of sources in a unique pro/con format. Like its predecessor, Introducing Issues with Opposing Viewpoints promotes issue awareness as well as critical thinking. Even more user-friendly and accessible than its parent series, it offers a wealth of information at a lower reading level, in a bright, engaging package. This appealing combination helps more students grasp the controversies of our increasingly complex world. Each anthology features useful charts, graphs and cartoons, engaging fact boxes that provide at-a-glance information and questions that focus on vocabulary and reading comprehension. Further research is encouraged through annotated bibliographies, web sites and organizations to contact.
