The Taking Sides volumes present current issues in a debate-style format designed to stimulate student interest and develop critical thinking skills. Each issue is thoughtfully framed with an issue summary, an issue introduction, and a postscript or challenge questions. The pro and con essays—selected for their liveliness and substance—represent the arguments of leading scholars and commentators in their fields. Taking Sides readers feature annotated listings of selected World Wide Web sites. An Online Instructor’s Resource Guide with testing material is available for each volume. Using Taking Sides in the Classroom, (available in print and online) is an excellent resource that offers practical suggestions for fostering critical thinking in the classroom when using the Taking Sides readers.
