Opinion Essay

This paper is all about you, and your opinion/perspective on a highly contested, touchy issue.

First, think of an issue. The world is full of them! Ive listed a number of topic ideas below, all taken from current media / online discussions:

Get the idea? If youre still not sure which direction to head in, read Editorial columns in any of the major newspapers. Lots of issues get bounced back and forth in them all of the time! The only topic I dont want to read about is the Abortion issue, please.

So, youve picked the issue. Now tell us about it. What you know, what youve read, if it has already affected your life and how, and what you feel about it in general. A 3-page paper is really easy to generate when you find the right issue. And, yes, your opinion really matters.

I would like this paper to provide you with some ground-work for the Research Paper, so really dig into your thoughts/feelings.
