Is Homework a Waste of Time?
These titles encourage critical thinking and debate by providing case studies, historical contexts, and individual opinions on each issue. Readers are encouraged to think and express themselves independently, evaluatively, and critically. At the end, readers are left to make up their own minds, having acquired transferable skills such as the ability to distinguish fact from opinion, weigh up the strength of other people's arguments, and recognize other people's assumptions.
