Compose a paper that responds to the main argument in a piece of opinion writing.
The paper should be 3-4 pages long (plus a title page and References page) and use APA style 7th edition for format and citations.
Choose an opinion essay from a popular news source (New York Times, Wall Street Journal, CNN, etc.) to analyze as the focus of your paper. Select an essay labeled “opinion” or “op-ed” that gives arguments for a debated view, rather than a descriptive news story that objectively narrates events that have happened.
In the paper, you will analyze the main argument of the opinion essay and briefly defend your own view on the issue. Before starting, review the Lecture Video – Argument Basics, Lecture Video – Deductive Arguments, and Lecture Video – Missing Claims and Longer Arguments, as well as the related handouts.
Include the following sections in this order:
The only sources you need for the paper are an outside opinion essay to analyze and the course text and materials. If you find that other sources are helpful for supporting your main ideas, you can add one or two more.
The library APA website (Links to an external site.) can assist with APA style. It has a pre-formatted paper in APA style to help with format as well as tabs on how to create in-text citations and References page listings for different types of sources.
Your grade will be calculated using the rubric attached to the assignment. Content Area will be weighted 70% with the remaining grade divided between the other rows as indicated on the rubric. Content Area concerns detailed engagement with an outside opinion essay, accurate and well-supported main claims, and correct logical work and discussion following the paper instructions.
