Students can use CQ Researcher's A-Z Index of Pro/Con Topics when they are preparing to debate a topic. The Reports are full of facts and statistics that can help in writing papers. CQ Researcher is updated weekly with new content. On the front page you can see what reports are coming up and what has been updated. Here are some recent and upcoming reports: Public Employee Unions, Wind Power, National Debt, Treating Alzheimer's. We often recommend this site.
