The articles in Essential Articles 2017 are aimed at students aged 14-18 and are carefully selected for their quality and interest.
Essential Articles covers a wide range of topics from a variety of viewpoints. You can find personal accounts and experiences, well-presented arguments to discuss or use as models for writing, controversial opinions and debates about current controversies.
The attractive, magazine-style presentation encourages browsing, reading & research.
"Essential Articles is essential reading for all school librarians. It provides such a brilliant range of resources across the secondary curriculum. It’s a real source of inspiration for teachers, librarians and students on topics that teenagers need to think about and reflect upon in this stressful and ever more complicated world. I always feel it’s the most useful annual resource to which any school library can subscribe. Thank you Carel Press for a brilliant resource."
Geoff Dubber, SLA, Sept 2016
"'I have just had excellent feedback from a pupil who recognised how she could use Essential Articles 2016 not only in English but to help with her Geography assignment. Another example was a pupil who said “Do you have anything on Poverty?” I had books on World Poverty but as she was looking at poverty in the UK we found exactly was she was looking for in Essential Articles."
Anne Renstead, Librarian, Eyemouth High School, Berwickshire, Sept 2015
"Guaranteed to spark debate on key issues and controversies ... the multitude of curriculum uses for the Complete Issues package would take too long to list and I would sincerely hope that every self respecting school library already has Complete Issues ... Essential Articles is beautifully produced. The text and layout of the articles are much better presented than the majority of original publications and with the addition of illuminating photos. Many students would be put off reading small dense newspaper articles in the broadsheets and few would come across some of the specialist publications used here. Have it available for browsing and general reading! Your online access ensures you will lose nothing you need to support learning."
The School Librarian, Spring 2015
