The best way to get ready to explain and defend a position on some controversial issue is to explore a topic thoughtfully, considering both sides of the issue before preparing an essay plan. This kind of preparation has two chief advantages: (1) it encourages us to study the issue carefully, and (2) it allows us to anticipate the arguments that our opponents may use.

A Conversation with Candace Fleming - ReadWriteThink

A Conversation with Candace Fleming - ReadWriteThink | AdLit | Scoop.it
In the world of young adult literature, some of today’s best and most powerful stories are being told by authors of nonfiction. Candace Fleming is one of those authors. Her newest book, The Family Romanov: Murder, Rebellion and the Fall of Imperial Russia, is both a portrait of Russia’s last royal family and a look at the causes of revolution. It’s an examination of the past, and it’s a cautionary tale that poses questions about our current world: How is today’s wealth gap the same or different from the wealth gap in Tsarist Russia? How should political leaders respond in the face of civic unrest? How are the fates of the powerful and the powerless intertwined?

But there’s more than politics and history here. When you read The Family Romanov, you’ll encounter complex characters, evocative settings, and page-turning suspense. Tune in to hear Candace Fleming discuss the origins of The Family Romanov, research as a process of questioning, and how authors of nonfiction are pushing the envelope in books for today’s teens.
