Canadian Points of View Reference Centre covers hundreds of topics, each with an overview (objective background / description), point (argument) and counterpoint (opposing argument). Each topic features a Guide to Critical Analysis which helps the reader evaluate the controversy and enhances students’ ability to read critically, develop their own perspective on the issues and write or debate an effective argument on the topic.
Canadian Points of View Reference Centre provides a balance of materials from all viewpoints, including:
- Leading political magazines
- Radio and television news transcripts
- Primary source documents
- Reference books
- A series of titles from World Public Opinion
- A video encyclopedia of the 20th century
Canadian Points of View Reference Centre provides access to EBSCO's Curriculum Standards Module. The resource also features alternative content delivery options to support Individual Education Plans, such as text-to-speech for HTML articles. In addition, the database includes rich multimedia content, student research guides and citation help.
Points of View Reference Centre contains resources that present multiple sides of an issue and provides rich content that can help students assess and develop persuasive arguments and essays, better understand controversial issues and develop analytical thinking skills.
