So far, Your Public Library Matchmaker has tried to fix you up with several eligible homework-related resources. There’s the 24/7 librarian chat, the chat hotline to experts on subjects like math and science, and the resource where you can practice the SAT, ACT, or other tests. Plus, we introduced you to Fiddler on the Roof—or rekindled your love for that stirring musical. We’re all about multi-tasking.
This brings us to the story of Chava and Fyedka: a Jewish girl and Orthodox Christian boy who dared to fall in love. Talk about controversy! Like most controversies, there are two sides to the story. Chava believes true love crosses all boundaries, while her father believes tradition should come before anything else. And if they wrote essays explaining their points-of-view, you would find them in Opposing Viewpoints in Context.
While you won’t find any essays by any of the characters from Fiddler on the Roof, you will find essays about cyberbullying, genetic engineering, fracking, medical marijuana, and many other topics, as well as articles from newspapers and magazines. You’ll find the pros and cons of each topic, written by real authors (as opposed to possibly misleading anonymous authors of random websites) so they’re teacher-approved. To use Opposing Viewpoints in Context, log in at the library on a computer with unlimited time or at home with your library card number and PIN.
Here at Push To Talk Headquarters, we can’t guarantee your course of true love will run smooth or that you won’t be disowned by your father, but we can help you get your homework done.
