Choose two topics from the Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center that interest you and
locate a set of materials from the database for each topic. If you choose school violence
as one of your topics, for example, you might find a magazine article that argues that
violence in the media causes school violence and a Web site that persuasively argues
that violence in the media is not responsible for school violence.
•Conduct a similar search for your second topic. When finished, you should have two
sources per topic. Note: You may use sources from any combination of the Viewpoints,
Magazines, Academic Journals, News (use sources marked Editorial and Column), and
Web sites database sections.
•Use the form in Appendix D to critically analyze your four sources. Fill out one form for each resorce.
