Issues That Concern You series
I edited three books for the Issues That Concern You series from Greenhaven. With each book, I took an issue of interest to junior and senior high school students and researched it from a variety of perspectives. I located articles and essays from stakeholders, which were then brought together to provide readers with a broad overview of the topics. My role as editor was to write introductions to each perspective and provide both front and back matter that would help young readers to understand and explore the topics further.
