Original editorial or commentary #1 Deadline: November 7 Write a substantial (250-500 words) and original editorial or commentary about Texas state and local government. --- Additional Guidance ---. I want you to write an original editorial or commentary--providing your opinion on a Texas state and local government issue. You'll need to make an argument, probably the easiest is to argue that Texas state and local government do (or not do) something, or that we should (or should not) adopt a particular course of action, or a particular evaluation. Texas should do _____ to alleviate immigration issues. Texas should institute a state income tax. It should not. Texas should fund Planned Parenthood. It should not. Texas should pass strict water conservation measures. It should not. Texas should ban fracking. It should not. Austin should ban plastic shopping bags. It should not. Austin should extend the Metrorail transit system. It should not. Governor Abbott is doing a good job at ______. Governor Abbot is doing a bad job at _____. You MUST make an argument. An argument is a well-developed, clearly stated line of reasoning aimed at convincing others of the truth or fallacy of a statement. Good scholarly arguments have a number of components: First, they are always interesting and relevant. Second, they are based on sound logic and they are specific. Third, arguments are disputable. Stating "there are a lot of middle-aged white males in the Texas Legislature" would not qualify as an argument because few would dispute this assertion. Fourth, arguments usually explain a causal relationship between at least two phenomena. An interesting argument might not be that there are a lot of middle-aged white males in the Texas Legislature, but rather that Texas is poorly represented because of a disproportionate percentage of middle-aged white males in the Texas Legislature. Here, the claim is disputable and it connects two variables: middle-aged white males in the Legislature and representation. Finally, an argument must rest on an observable phenomenon, which can be measured by other researchers. I want you to write in the style of editorials you see in the states' leading newspapers (the Austin American Statesman (http://www.statesman.com/opinion/) most famously) or in the leading blogs (Paul Burka's Burkablog (http://www.texasmonthly.com/burka-blog/), Juanita Jean's (http://juanitajean.com/), Grits for Breakfast (http://gritsforbreakfast.blogspot.com/), and so on). All of the state and local newspapers you have linked in your blogs have "Opinion" sections as do the papers I've listed in the suggested sources. Read a few of these to get a feel for what I want you to do. Finally, poet, educator, and teacher advocate Taylor Mali has excellent advice for those making arguments: Speak with Conviction (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8PoIixzsKo&feature=youtu.be) and, a typographical version: Speak with Conviction in Typography (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9x5KhfWAis&feature=youtu.be)
