Technology drived op-ed
political cartoon op-ed, above.
(Op-Ed on top.)
so, pretty much what we did was take notes on something we are interested in and put that knowledge onto a google document. (Kinda like a independent research project.) but the catch is that you have to outline the paper in a Op-Ed format. An op ed is A “denoting or printed on the page opposite the editorial page in a newspaper, devoted to commentary, feature articles, etc.” What I did was look up a lot of news articles, blog post, and YouTube videos to take notes on for I would use them later, the next thing I did was I used this website called easybib and used it to cite all my sources. The next thing I did was I just started typing, using the information that I know from memory and notes to help me with this op-ed. I went through 3 different drafts to get my op ed just right. I added my sources and printed it out.
The biggest hinge that I learned from this project is how fast advanced ai robots where made better in the last 50 years. I also learned that you can use these robots to teach people with autism how to recognize or make certain emotions.
So, for my cartoon, I learned that you do not have to be a good drawer/cartoonist to make a good political cartoon. It matters most when the message and/or point is really good, because then all you need is basic 5th grade drawing skills and you got yourself a good political cartoon that is well made.
so, the premise of the Op-Ed is weird, but understandable. I think Op-Ed’s look a lot more professional and worthwhile than say a 5 paragraph essay. (Take note that 5 paragraph essays are not ever used in real life, only in schools. It was a little weird just because I am not used to writing things like an Op-Ed, I am rather more confident in structured essays, so it was a little unsettling that I had a word count at the end of my Op-Ed. I leaned that the best font is the times new romans when writing anything.
