Containing resources that present multiple sides of an issue, the Points of View Reference Center provides rich content that can help students assess and develop persuasive arguments and essays, better understand controversial issues and develop analytical thinking skills.

This database covers hundreds of topics, each with an overview (objective background/description), point (argument), and counterpoint (opposing argument).

Each topic features a Guide to Critical Analysis which helps the reader evaluate the controversy and enhances students’ ability to read critically, develop their own perspective on the issues, and write or debate an effective argument on the topic.
