Letters to the editor

Write a letter to the editor. “Letters to the editor” sections, sometimes called “Letters,” “Mail” or “From Our Readers”. of newspapers and magazines give readers a chance to comment on current controversies, news stories, etc. If you are not familiar with this section of newspapers or magazines, they are typically located on the editorial/opinion pages or usually at the front of magazines. The letters tend to be short, less than a page, and commonly attempt (but often fail) to present well reasoned arguments.

Your Discussion Question 3 assignment is to write an argument as a letter to the editor. Choose a topic, story, issue, etc. from recent events that interests you. Write a letter presenting your argument, and post a copy here on the Discussion page (for class credit).

Your argument must include at least one deductive inference and at least one inductive inference.
