After reading the article write an essay in which you argue whether or not
you think the internet is making us “dumber.” Why do you believe this, or
why not? Support your point with original and compelling arguments that
go beyond those suggested in this article. Defend your position using
compelling counterarguments. Your essay should show an understanding
of this article, and your own research without simply repeating it (unless
quoting), and you should incorporate specific details from your own
experience and knowledge into your response. The specific requirements
for this essay are as follows:
4 pages minimum.•
Summarize the main idea of the article.
At least 3 additional sources not including this article.
Write a thesis as the last sentence of your introduction in which you
take a stance on the issue (do you think that the internet is making
us less intelligent?).
Include at least 3 quotes from your own research, this article, or the
readings we have done so far for this progression.
Include a counterargument.
