Please remember that this assignment is for your researched thought. If you describe an opinion, it should be grounded in citation and referenced based on your research. The purpose of the assignment is for you to critically examine issues, using research as your foundation for your ideas. Ideas built from research create credibility with the reader. It also enhances your critical thinking as well as your own enlightenment. Many times, we have an opinion that after we research the opinion, we find that there is evidence of counterintuitive concepts that lead to new ways of looking at our original idea.
