Capital Punishment. Fracking. Gun Control. Gay Marriage. Climate Change. These are just a few examples of the social issues in the news all the time. Wouldn’t it be helpful to have a way to learn about these topics and explore all different perspectives in one reliable place?
Gale Opposing Viewpoints in Context is perfect not only for students working on current event projects, but anyone who wants to educate themselves on all sides of an issue. It’s one of the best all-around resources available through UAPL, and a favorite among librarians.
Each major topic includes an overview, pro/con essays, court cases, magazine and newspaper articles, podcasts and more. Browse through all of the explored issues, or search for something you came across in the news recently.
