Today in class we broke off into groups of two and practiced writing editorials.  We argued either in favor or against an article written in The Eagle titled Dorms to be separated by grade next year.   For more information on writing editorials and columns you can refer to the textbook on pages 134-135.  The assignment for next class is to come up with three ideas for an opinion piece that has something to do with AU or DC.  Another assignment, which is not due until March 14th,  is to attend a speech and then write a review.  Below is a “Fast-Facts Box” of an upcoming speech on campus that you can check out. opinion

Topic: homelessness and poverty in DC

When: Thursday, February 24th from 7-8pm
