Summary
In clear language, this guide explains how students can improve writing skills through example and exercise. First, it shows how to recognize persuasive writing, such as reviews or articles in the op-ed section of the newspaper. Students are then asked to write their own opinion pieces following specific models included in the book. Colorful graphics illustrate helpful hints and pointers on how to differentiate facts from opinions, conduct research, and organize findings in an outline.
