What’s an Op-Ed?
Signed newspaper articles expressing personal opinions (traditionally printed opposite the editorial page). Op-eds talk about the issues, making judgments, spotting problems and even suggesting solutions.
Because an op ed piece usually responds to something happening in the world. Read about what’s going on and respond. Watch the news. Think about what you hear.
