There are always two sides to every argument. Advocating for issues that matter to you is important but what's equally as important is understanding those issues from the other perspective. The Two Sides of an Argument: Speech and Debate series provides readers with the tools and strategies to think critically and analyze highly debated topics through an unbiased lens. Readers will learn how to use logic and facts to defend and argue against both stances while also learning how to stay empathetic and civil. Books encourage, promote, and help build social-emotional learning (SEL) and highlight key 21st Century Skills and Content. Includes research activity, table of contents, glossary, index, author biography, sidebars, and educational matter.
