Polemic publications

16 Oct

This post is for Mrs. Boswell’s students who are preparing persuasive speeches.

To get a sense of various viewpoints about your topic, consider searching for your topic and comparing its coverage in polemic publications written from different perspectives.  Most of the titles on this PDF list directly link to the publication’s page in Gale PowerSearch.  You may use the search box on the left of the Gale PowerSearch screen to search for your topic within that specific publication.  To search several polemic publications at once, you may use Advanced Search and limit your results to a group of publications by clicking Browse Publication Title and selecting each title you’d like in your search group.

For a few titles, you will note that the full-text is only available in LexisNexis Scholastic, not Gale PowerSearch.  For those you will need to open LexisNexis Scholastic and search for the article by title.
