OpEd--what's the argument?

Today I would like you to read the New York Times Opinion Page and explore. Find an article that is intriguing to you and read it--closely. Then...

  1. Write a summary of the article. Remember that a summary is the most concise manner of retelling the main points of the text.
  2. Analyze the argument of the text. What is the argument? How does the author present it?
  3. Explain what your opinion is on the matter. What do you think about what the author's argument?
