Opinion Piece


As citizens, we need to be able to distill our opinions and persuade others of the validity of those opinions. In a 5-7 page, double-spaced paper (with 12-pt. font maximum and 1-inch margins maximum), you will write an opinion piece designed to speak to a particular audience about a subject that you think would be valuable to articulatenot only for your own benefit, but for others as well. Your topic should be something on which you have a good amount of knowledge.

Your piece must conform to the genre expectations for opinion pieces, which the Bedford Book of Genres outlines and which we will discuss in class.

The rough/first draft is due on the date listed in the syllabus: you will need to upload your draft to the Google Drive you share with your group members; you will also upload a copy for me to Blackboard. This rough draft must be complete for you to get the 2 points on your final grade average. Drafts that are incomplete will earn 0 pts. These are the drafts on which your group members will make comments. Your final draft will be due on the date listed in the syllabus.
