Understand the Issue

Before you can construct an effective argument, you must first have a solid understanding of your topic. Below are resources that provide a broad overview of a particular issue. As you read, take notes on key themes and ideas that you can use to research further. For very current topics that are constantly in flux, take a step back and see if you can tie that into broader themes. 


What is an Op-Ed?

From the Washington Post: "An op-ed is an opinion piece by a guest writer that makes a clear argument about a topic usually (but not always) in the news. The name is derived from the traditional placement of these pieces opposite the editorial page of the printed newspaper."

Recommended News Sources from the Web

Below are a sampling of resources from the general web, including news organizations, and research institutions.

Though these sources are recommended based on a certain level of credibility, you should approach any source with a critical eye. Ask yourself:

  • can you trace the claims that are being made?

  • Does that publisher have an agenda that may impact the content it publishes? If you are unsure, go outside the source and trace the claims, and learn more about author/publisher on wikipedia. 

When in doubt, reach out to a librarian or your teacher for help understanding a source!
