I'm looking for a very brief (1-2 pg) summary of the realism/anti-realism debate in the philosophy of science which might be appropriate for a senior high school class. It should present good reasons for supporting either side.

I'd like to have a full lesson on this topic and just need a good little primer reading to go along with the rest of it.

Oxford's "very short" series on the philosophy of science inspired this, but I am looking for something even more concise and readable in class than the chapter on realism/antirealism found there.

If all else fails I guess I can try and write one...
