Opinions--Everybody's Got One 

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

  1. Copy a link to the article.
  2. Write a summary of the article. Remember that a summary is the most concise manner of retelling the main points of the text.
  3. Analyze the argument of the text. What is the argument? How does the author present it?
  4. Do you see any fallacies or other flaws in the argument? If so, what are they?
  5. Explain what your opinion is on the matter. What do you think about what the author's argument?
