Gr 5-9-In alignment with Common Core standards, this series explores four topics relevant to the lives of young readers with the intention of helping them strengthen their critical reading, argument formation, and essay-writing skills. A clear, engaging narrative presents opposing sides of the issues, and "Examine the Opinions" sections at the end of each chapter pose questions, encouraging students to analyze and form their own arguments. A "Wrap it Up!" section asks students to write a persuasive essay, backing up their opinions with facts, and gives six specific steps for doing so effectively. "Did You Know?" text boxes, along with full-color captioned photos, will keep readers engaged and informed. Students will respond to the interactive elements while learning how to find trustworthy sources and studying the nuances of complicated and controversial issues. Useful titles for provoking independent thought.α(c) Copyright 2014. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
