Part II: Essay 2 (50% of grade ~800 words, although effective op-eds are generally not much longer than this)
Write an op-ed (opinion piece) for the Dallas Morning News on a current disability rights issue of your choice. Your answer should draw on the readings and discussions about disability rights. Explain why this issue matters, how it should be addressed, and why addressing it will improve the status of people with disabilities. While this essay does not need to draw directly on the course readings, it should be informed by them.
