Summary
Overview: Over thirty-five years ago, Greenhaven Press began publishing the Opposing Viewpoints series to help students gain an awareness of current issues and develop critical thinking skills. The Introducing Issues with Opposing Viewpoints series continues that tradition, presenting a wealth of information on contemporary issues in a colorful, easy-to-read format. In addition to pro/con articles, each Introducing Issues with Opposing Viewpoints volume includes appealing features designed to help students understand the complexities of current issues: Full-color photographs, charts, graphs, and cartoons supplement the text; Sidebars present easy-to-understand statistics; Engaging fact boxes provide at-a-glance information; Questions that focus on vocabulary aid reading comprehension; Glossary, annotated bibliography, websites, and organizations to contact supplement student research
