Use of technology and the future depends on the article that is attached below
You will be given two short articles, which express opposing viewpoints on the the effect of social media on student writing. You will not be able to see these articles until you begin the test. You will have 90 minutes to read the articles and write an essay on the same topic, using the articles as support. You should take a clear stance on the issue (choose a side) but also address the counter argument somewhere in your essay.
Once the 90 minutes are up, you will be forced to submit the essay. Make sure your internet is working properly and you have the time to write. I will NOT accept final exams by email or any other method (absolutely no exceptions!), and you will not be allowed to restart it. If you do not submit the essay here in the allowed time, you will receive a 0 on the final exam. These are rules set by the English department, and I cannot change them.
You should type your essay in either Word or Pages. You will need to submit your essay by attaching your completed file. Do not attach in the submission comments.
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.
Note: this is a timed quiz. You may check the remaining time you have at any point while taking the quiz by pressing the keyboard combination SHIFT, ALT, and T… Again: SHIFT, ALT, and T…
