there are two short articles, which express opposing viewpoints on the effect of social media on student writing. You will not be able to see these articles until you begin the test. You should take a clear stance on the issue (choose a side) but also address the counter argument somewhere in your essay.
This assignment asks you to respond to the topic both articles address with an argument of your own in an essay that is 4-6 paragraphs in length.
In your argument, be sure to:
- Include a thesis statement identifying your position (opinion) on the topic. To develop your thesis, provide clear topic sentences/sub-claims/reasons. Each body paragraph should be focused on a specific sub-claim or reason.
- Support your argument with evidence of and analysis from the provided texts, using correct MLA format for citations. Follow PIEIE paragraph format.
- Be sure to address and respond to a counter-argument in your essay.
Please read the articles below and use them as support for your claims.
