Fallacy-A fallacy is a general type of appeal (or category of argument) that resembles good reasoning, but that we should not find to be persuasive.

Newspaper Editorial- Objectives:
1. To analyze a newspaper editorial.
2. To identify main ideas, facts and opinions, and author's viewpoint.
3. To summarize information.
4. To respond, in writing, to an editorial.


Opinion Magazine- not quite sure .. probably a magazine whose writers and articles has its own opinions

Summarizing-.
involves putting the main idea(s) or one or several writers into your own words, including only the main point(s). Once again, it is necessary to attribute summarized ideas to the original source. Summarized ideas are not necessarily presented in the same order as in the original source. Summaries are significantly shorter than the original and take a broad overview of the source material.

when to summarize:You want to establish background or offer an overview of a topic
You want to describe common knowledge (from several sources) about a topic
You want to determine the main ideas of a single source

Good job E!!!!!

An opinion magazine is... like, a political mag that generally only deals with "opinions" and the like. It isn't like a hobby craft or centered around facts.
