Our world is full of complex issues like gun control, illegal immigration, the national debt, legal marijuana, the right to public health coverage, and more. It can be tough to know what to make of it all. It's even tougher for students, especially high school students, to research and collect information about topics like these for term papers. The internet is awash in biased, contradictory information and untrustworthy sources. That's why it's more important than ever for educators to ask their students to research and report on multi-dimensional issues like these. It's an important part of becoming a well informed citizen.
For this reason, the Free Library is pleased to offer our card holders access to Opposing Viewpoints In Context.
