Essay/Editorial Reading Passages

Essays and editorials are opinion pieces. Essays are a form of nonfiction literature where the author examines a particular topic and usually gives an opinion or some perspective about it. These are usually short, although one essay is often a part of a larger collection of essays. Editorials are journalistic pieces. They usually appear in newspapers (or later, newscasts) and express the opinion of the editor or editorial staff of the newspaper.
