Look Inside Explores pros and cons of several issues related to bullying including; whether the internet is to blame, if schools are doing enough to prevent it, and punishments associated with bullying. Text contains critical thinking components in regards to social issues and history. 

The Matters of Opinion series takes a look into important issues that young adults face. Each book features thought-provoking questions surrounding the issue and provides essays on both the pro and con point of view. As students learn more about the different sides of each issue, they can then start to formulate their own opinions on the topic.  After each discussion, the reader is introduced to argumentative techniques that the authors used to present their viewpoints.  These include using techniques such as the "Emotional Appeal", "Bias", "Testimonials" and more. These techniques are valuable both for essay writing and understanding how to differentiate opinions from fact.  The last chapter encourages the reader to write their own opinion piece and provides guidance for working through the steps of essay writing.  Aligns with Common Core Language Arts Anchor Standards for Reading Informational Text and Speaking and Listening.

Each volume focuses on a currently controversial issue and presents “Yes/No” arguments on each of three central questions, reminiscent of Opposing Viewpoints (Greenhaven Press). Each volume’s timeline puts the issue in historical context. Each opinion makes liberal use of quoted testimony, and each article is supported by captioned photographs and additional background material. What is most impressive are the footnotes, bibliography, and list of articles that comprise nearly thirty completely cited sources for each book. Each book’s author has carefully crafted arguments that are both persuasive and constructed with the best persuasive techniques and the most egregious logical fallacies. After each set of paired arguments, one of these fallacies is defined and the reader is invited to examine both arguments for examples. Highly Recommended
