Op Eds...Seriously. Again?

Today I would like you to read the New York 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? 
  4. What rhetorical strategies does the author use to try to persuade you?
  5. Explain what your opinion is on the matter. What do you think about what the author's argument?
