most-researched enduring issues



SIRS® Issues Researcher (videos and details) helps students make sense of the world by offering relevant, credible resources that tell the whole story on major issues and world conflicts of the day. Start with SIRS Issues Researcher for background and current analysis necessary for research and understanding of 330+ current and pervasive Leading Issues. (handout)

SIRS has been the leader in social issues coverage for more 40 years.

It's all here, enduring issues such as animal rights, capital punishment, health care, immigration, and gun control; and current issues such as energy policy, mass media, World Conflicts including Iran and Syria, virtual schools, and national security and surveillance.

Analysis and opinions cover the pros, cons, and everything in between on the most researched and debated social issues. Editorially created Topic Overview pages help build solid foundations for understanding the issue. Critical Thinking and Information Literacy skills are promoted through engaging Essential Questions with answers, and viewpoint articles.

Thousands of hand-selected, highly targeted newspaper & magazine articles, graphics, charts, maps, primary sources, government documents, websites, and multimedia support viewpoints from the pros and cons, to everything in-between. Special features such as Statistics and Global Impact broaden student comprehension of issues.
