Synopsis

Is Homework a Waste of Time? by Kate Shuster

The aim of these books is to teach students how to think not what to think. By providing case studies, historical context and individual opinions, but not a specific right and wrong, these books encourage readers to think and express themselves independently. Each topic also acts as a springboard for a discussion of related issues. A range of viewpoints encourage critical thinking, and simple activities and exercises provide practical advice and examples of critical and creative thinking skills. They include a mixture of text types, including recounts, reports discussions and persuasion texts.
