Advanced College Writing (ENGL 112) First Essay Assignment: Essay of Opinion The purpose of this assignment is to choose a topic and to write an essay in which you express your opinion. An opinion is a view or perspective on something that is not necessarily based on fact or knowledge. According to Dictionary.com, an opinion is “ a belief or judgment that rests on grounds insufficient to produce complete certainty. . .a personal view, attitude, or appraisal.” This essay, then, will express your opinion about something; research is not necessary for this assignment. Suitable topics usually involve various debates, though they do not necessarily have to be important topics, and within each of these there will be multiple perspectives. After choosing a topic, you will need first to decide which perspective to take. In the essay, you will explain what your opinion is, how you arrived at that opinion, and why the opinion is important to you. As you begin to think about this essay, make certain that you understand why you believe your topic–and your opinion– to be important.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
