Summary
  • "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"--
  • "This title explores many aspects of sexually transmitted diseases, including what contributes to the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, what education programs address the spread of STDs, and whether government regulation would reduce STD infection rates"--
