One of the on-going assignments that you will be asked to do in AP Language is to follow the opinion page of The New York Times. Here are a couple of the better opinion pieces that I've read on a week of absolutely heartbreaking news: "Divided by Race, United by Pain" by Frank Bruni and "A Week from Hell" by Charles Blow. Offer your thoughts on their thoughts. Or, do you notice any rhetorical devices they employed? Or, quote something that resonates with you in some way and comment upon it. Or, link to another piece you'd like your classmates to read as well.
