Hot Topics in Media - School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

By providing different arguments about contemporary issues, this series, which is designed to align with the CCSS, asks readers to think critically and evaluate alternative points of view. . . . The clean design integrates textual and visual (charts, graphs, photos, etc.) information. Text boxes contain suggestions to “Explore Online,” “Straight to the Source” primary-source excerpts, “Further Evidence” writing exercises, or interesting facts. The publisher’s “Web Links” at the end of each volume lead readers to websites that contain current articles and multimedia to round out the content explored. These trendy topics will grab casual readers and report writers alike.
