OPPOSING VIEWPOINTS ON HEALTH
$21.40Order Code: GP721 ISBN : 9780737733471
Pro and con arguments on hot-topic social issues are presented in brief essays and followed with discussion questions. Based on the premise that "it is better to debate a question without settling it than to settle a question without debating it," this library uses the viewpoints of knowledgeable spokespersons to spark critical thought. Teens at Risk, for example, debates causes of—and prevention strategies for—teen sex and pregnancy, juvenile crime and violence, and drug and alcohol use, while Problems of Death examines abortion, the death penalty, and physician-assisted suicide. Titles subject to substitution based on availability. Grades 7–12. Greenhaven.
