I want you to come into class on Friday with answers to the following questions about your “journey” from research project to op-ed:
1: What topic now interests you? (after reading and identifying the key moments and surprising discoveries you-hopefully-made in your research project)
2: How will you support your new argument with a mix of personal experience and research-based evidence? (remember, you don’t have much space here).
3: What evidence (or arguments) are you going to cut in the progress from research project to op-ed? That is, what evidence take on increased importance as you look back at it, and what looks like it should be tossed?
4: What should your audience feel as they come away? Should they be foaming at the mouth? Or just ready to turn on NPR and learn something new?
