School Library Journal Review

Gr 10 Up-Previously published articles from books and periodicals are juxtaposed to allow readers to explore the various aspects and nuances of each subject. Each book features more than 10 authors arguing a particular stance on the topic, such as whether or not English-immersion programs have resulted in increased test scores, and whether American descendants of slaves should receive reparations from the United States government. Bilingual Education offers more alternating viewpoints, while the second book has more factual articles about worldwide slavery. These titles should help students to find arguments to bolster their own research and gain new insights into these subjects.-Carol Fazioli, formerly at The Brearley School, New York City (c) Copyright 2010.
