This title allows students to create their own research-supported conclusion about a much-debated topic.
Some people think students should not have to do more schoolwork when they get home. Others think that homework is a valuable part of education. Do you have an opinion about homework? What reasons can you give for your opinion? Sharing your opinion is more effective when you use facts and examples that support your position. It’s also helpful to know what those who disagree with you think, and why. Featuring engaging reading activities and relatable content, the simple-to-follow book, Homework, Yes or No?, allows young learners to construct their own persuasive statements.
The Seeing Both Sides series encourages young learners to research and support their own conclusions on a variety of long-debated topics. Readers will explore the pros and cons of each specific topic and gain a better understanding of differing opinions and why it is important to look at all the facts before making a decision. Each 24-page book features a teaching focus, before- and after-reading activities, writing tips, a glossary, and more, to effectively engage young learners and prompt them to explain their understanding.
