I’ve been really bad about updating the blog this week, and I apologize for that. This week we started opinion writing. I handed out Dr. Plagman’s guest editorial as well as Dick Fredericks’ response, talking about our initial responses to the articles. I also handed out a packet about how to write argumentative pieces.

Tuesday we used the short day to discuss different things that you could write editorials about.

Wednesday we filled out a worksheet over the information in the textbooks about opinion writing. I also showed everyone the online resources (Ebsco and SIRS) available through the IMC site off, which can be helpful in doing background research for your editorial.
