Many times when we are writing research or other types of papers, we need to find information about an issue from multiple perspectives or viewpoints. For example, you may be writing about the pros and cons of charter schools or perhaps you are doing a political analysis from the perspective of both Democrats and Republicans.
An excellent place to begin your research is using Gale's Opposing Viewpoints in Context.
Pearson Library provides access to the Social Issues Series with access to viewpoint articles, topic overviews, statistics, primary documents, links to websites, and full-text magazine and newspaper articles that cover today's hottest issues.
Our subscription also includes a curriculum standards search. If you are a student teacher, for example you can use Opposing Viewpoints identify material by grade and discipline.
The video below will show you an overview of Opposing Viewpoints and how to start a search.
