What is a good article to write a two sided opinion essay on?
Find an article from a reputable news source on a controversial topic that interests you (i.e. gun control, women?s rights, international conflict, immigration laws, etc.). Read the article and identify all of the main points and important information. What are the two sides of the issue? What are their arguments? You may need to do some additional research or find a complimentary article in order to get all the information you need.
Then, write a 1-2 page response summarizing the information given in the article and articulating your own opinion about the issue. Which side of the debate do you fall on? What reasons do you use to support your opinion? How would you respond to the opposite side?s arguments? Your response should follow essay format (introduction, main paragraphs with supporting details, and conclusion). Remember to explain yourself fully and include as much detail as possible.
You must cite your sources.
For an article, include the article title (in quotation marks), the author, the news source (underlined), and the date published.
For a website used to gather additional information, include the website name, author (if provided), date accessed, and website address.
