Description
Many schools require students to learn a second language. Does this help students understand other cultures and people around the world or is it a waste of time? What reasons can you give for your opinion? Check out arguments on both sides of the issue, then it's your turn to answer the question: learning a second language, yes or no?

Featuring engaging reading activities and relatable content, the simple-to-follow book, Learning a Second Language, Yes or No?, allows young learners to construct their own persuasive statements.

The Seeing Both Sides series encourages young learners to research and support their own conclusions on a variety of long-debated topics. Readers will explore the pros and cons of each specific topic and gain a better understanding of differing opinions and why it is important to look at all the facts before making a decision. Each 24-page book features a teaching focus, before- and after-reading activities, writing tips, a glossary, and more, to effectively engage young learners and prompt them to explain their understanding.

display_description "Many schools require students to learn a second language. Does this help students understand other cultures and people around the world? Or is it a waste of time when schools really need to focus on teaching students important stuff like math and science? What reasons can you give for your opinion? Sharing your opinion is more effective when you use facts and examples that support your position. It's also helpful to know what those who disagree with you think, and why. Check out arguments on both sides of the issue, then it's your turn to answer the question: learning a second language, yes or no?"--Back cover.
