Assignment 1: Newspaper Opinion Article
Brief description of assessment task
This assignment is a 1,000 word opinion article, based on the kind of opinion
articles that appear daily in broadsheet newspapers. Have a look at some
examples from The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald or The Australian to see
how they are structured and written.
You are trying to persuade the reader to your point of view using evidence,
analysis, argument and conviction. You are arguing your case. There is no
“correct” position to be taken. The challenge is to respond to the statement
coherently, concisely and persuasively in 1,000 words.
In this assignment only, there is no need for footnotes, citations, references or a
bibliography unless you are quoting someone else directly in your article, in
which case you must acknowledge the author.(Harvard style if needed)
When marking this assignment, the assessor will be looking for:
a) an awareness of more than one side of the argument;
b) the ability to construct a coherent, lucid, well informed and brief article; and
c) the ability to argue persuasively using well chosen evidence and examples.

states dominated geo-politics is rapidly passing.

and the ASD in Australia suggest that Western states are becoming increasingly
