Differing Viewpoints Assignment

Your group needs to find information representing viewpoints that support your particular side of the assigned topic.  Each team member needs to find at least one unique source, and everyone needs three sources for the individual essay portion of the assignment.  You will need to find organizations that actively support your assigned position.


  • Abortion
  • Sex education/ variety of birth control practices
  • Same sex adoption

Viewpoint Information Sources

When searching, begin by thinking about the terminology used by those supporting the particular side you are assigned.  For example, for the birth control question,  the "yes" side might search for "sex education" or "birth control," while the "no' side might search for "abstinence education" or "abstinence only education."
