OP-ED (Opinion Editorial): Opinion editorials are essays published in newspapers, online, or in magazines that express the opinion of the author on an important social topic that is relevant to a wide audience. Unlike most newspaper articles, OP-EDs are not neutral: they attempt to persuade the reader that a specific change or course of action is necessary. For this assignment, write an opinion editorial for newspaper or magazine on a subject of your choice, using OP-EDs from the New York Times (https://www.nytimes.com/pages/opinion/index.html).
This paper must be 4 FULL pages. Times New Roman 12 pt. font, double spaced, paginated, with 1 inch margins and minimal blank space, a references cited page if appropriate, and stapled with the checklist to the back. It is best to pick a subject that is important in 2018, as many controversial subjects from the past have already been exhaustively discussed.Remember the basics. Does your essay have a beginning, middle, and end? Do you address the prompt? Who is your audience? Can you use any rhetorical devices to give your essay structure?What kind of examples do you have, and do they work together to build your case, or are they really just a lot of disparate information?1) What is the basic point you are trying to make? 2) What evidence or set or arguments are you going to use to illustrate your point? 3) Above all, why is this meaningful?
