Opinion Writing

Course Details

Our democracy needs committed journalists who believe what they write can help their readers take a stand. Students will read and discuss editorials and columns, from the civil rights movement to the present, to discover what makes opinion writing effective. This is a writing-intensive class. We will write in an effort to open minds or change them about local, state, national, and international issues.
