How to Write an Op-Ed Article | Office of News and Communications

How to Write an Op-Ed Article | Office of News and Communications | Reading and Writing | Scoop.it
Official gateway to information and online resources of Duke University, a private research university located in Durham NC, USA.
Yazmine Moreno's insight:

I chose this article because I have never actually written an op-ed and i am way out of my comfort zone here. I needed this article to refer back too because the instructions are so vague because we are given so much freedom for this paper that I don’t know how to go about it. at least the other papers I’ve had to write have had some sort of familiar structure whereas this paper is completely different from the unbiased research papers I’m used to doing. Having extra sources to refer to is somewhat comforting for me as I begin to write this paper.

Yazmine Moreno's insight:

I chose this article mainly because I was looking for another source other than what our professors have told us and presented to us that explains that it is okay to use the first person in our essays. We also have to worry about being too casual in our writing which is one thing I’m afraid of when it comes to my papers especially if I am speaking in the first person.

Reading for Pleasure as a Means of Improving Reading Comprehension Skills.: EBSCOhost

Yazmine Moreno's insight:

Just last night I was talking about how when I was younger I had to take the special ESL classes because it was mandatory for those who had checked the box when filling out their school forms. Although Spanish was my first language I mostly spoke English because of school. The other students in the class however, really struggled with English. They gave us a list of books to read to improve our reading in English and come to find out, in this experiment, it doesn't make as much of a difference as they thought so.

I chose this article because when as I was reading through it I thought to myself “I need this, I need to save this because I have no idea what I’m going to do about any of my papers. not just for this class but for all of my other ones”.

Before reading you should allow children to make predictions about...
Yazmine Moreno's insight:

I picked this article because I thought it was kind of funny that the same strategies that we read about in our “scholarly articles” for colleges students, are pretty much identical to the one in this article teaching parents, teachters, etc. how to teach very young children barely learning how to read and comprehend. The first thing I saw that made everything just click was reading the title. This is the one tip I never forget and here it is teaching 4 and 5 year olds.
