The Module 2 SLP is an Argumentative essay in which the writer takes a stance on technology and children and provides three or more supporting points as support.
After reflecting on “The Impact of Technology on the Developing Child” and “Is the Internet Hurting Children?” write a well-organized and well-supported essay on technology and children.
A well-organized essay has a beginning, middle, and an end. The beginning, or introduction, should include an opening sentence to grab your reader’s attention. Follow the opening sentence with a brief background on the topic or situation. In this case, it would be brief summary on technology and children today. The last sentence of the introduction is the thesis statement. The thesis states the main point of the essay, which in this case, would be a statement affirming the impact of technology on children today.
A well-supported essay includes supporting points, details, and examples. For this essay, you must decide the best way to organize the body of the paper. Will you have one or two paragraphs for each supporting point? Will you divide the body of your paper into three or more paragraphs, one for each point? In any case, each body paragraph must support (explain) your reasoning (rationale) using specific details. Each body paragraph must have a topic sentence that states the main point of the paragraph, which in this case would be each supporting point.
This essay must include no less than FOUR citations from these two readings. Citations are to be a combination of direct quotations and paraphrased quotations with or without the author’s name. No others sources are to be used for this assignment.
The conclusion typically summarizes the main points of the essay and/or closes with a lasting impression that connects the reader to their world. In this case, where do we go from here?
The essay must also include a Reference List that includes the two readings quoted in the essay.
Be sure to proofread your essay and edit for proper grammar, punctuation, diction (word choice), and spelling, as errors in sentence skills will lower a final grade. A grade will be determined based on the Module 2 SLP expectations and the Trident University General Education rubric for English.
Papers must be double-spaced in Times or Times New Roman font (12 cpi) with standard one-inch margins.
The first person “I” is not used in a formal essay, nor is the passive “you.” In place of “you,” “one” may be used.
