Should Canadian government regulate gas prices?Op-ed pieces are opinion pieces which rest on well researched evidence but they are not an academic essay. They are meant to sway the reader with the strength of the argument, not just the evidence. In contrast to an essay which has an introduction, a main body and conclusions op-ed pieces usually start with a “hook” then a statement of the argument, then the persuasive body with the supporting data and finishing by relating the argument back to the “hook”. You should choose a topic you feel strongly about since you will want to convince the reader that your perspective is the correct one. You should begin by reading a number of editorials from the Globe and Mail or other good newspaper. Like the essay these should also be double-spaced.

This assignment borrows some aspects of a formal proposal and adapts them to the course. The goal is to use the topic from the Annotated Bibliography and Literature Review and make a short argument for a future course of action. For example, this could be to propose more research in one of the areas that you covered in the literature review, or, it could be to propose new research to fill a gap in the existing field. While it is making an argument that seeks to persuade its readers, the tone should be professional and logical. You should imagine the audience to have a mix of scientific, engineering, and IT backgrounds.
The audience for this essay is a group of non-specialists who have an interest in supporting your claim by funding your research. You need to persuade them that your issue is significant and that your opinion on what should be done is the right course of action and worthy of funding. You do not have to include material costs or an expenditure budget, though you should consider plausibility of your solution as part of its rhetorical effectiveness. A proposal is usually both a forecast of the future — what you believe, based on current data, will or should occur — and a request for your audience's approval or agreement with that forecast. It is thus part description and part argument: you need to persuade an audience that what you propose is reasonable and plausible.
See the “Steps” section below for more on the essay’s format. The essay should directly cite at least three sources. Select the most relevant source material and frame the research in order to persuade a specific, non-specialist audience to the author’s point of view. The persuasive essay should use visual aids and/or numbers as part of its argument while being careful to follow the principles discussed in class on best practices.
Logically, the essay needs to make a well-reasoned argument based on evidence from reliable sources as well as follow conventions for academic forms of argument. This format allows you to demonstrate your research and reasoning skills to an audience of non-specialists about a topic that you consider significant for wider understanding.
