Writing Project #2: Toulmin Argument
“The more opinion is grounded on rich experience and deep study, the better the quality of our public discourse about the issues that matter to us.” –Mike Rose
For WP #2, you will select a topic of importance to your community, research that topic, select an appropriate local or regional newspaper, and write a 700-800 word op-ed that argues for a change in action, one that is addressed to a non-expert public audience. In order to provide relevant data to support your claims, you will be expected to research your topic, including library and internet research, and possibly primary research such as conducting interviews or surveys germane to your topic. You will also incorporate at least two visuals (a table, figure, graphic, photo, etc.) to support your argument, which will implement the Toulmin model outlined in The Well-Crafted Argument.
The op-ed argument will be similar to what’s found in the Sunday opinion section of the Denver Post; Rose’s “Writing for the Public” provides great insight into this genre.
Please don’t write your op-ed about these topics: the death penalty, gun control, legalizing weed (or other drugs), lowering the drinking age in the US, or abortion.
