English III- Mrs. Sullivan The Effects of Technology The Expository Essay For the past couple of weeks, we have dug into the weighty topic of the implications, whether good or bad, of technology and its role in our society around certain aspects. You will now have the opportunity to make an argument about what is both positive and/or negative about a sector of technology that is interesting to you. The Assignment: You will write a 4 paragraph (minimum) essay that addresses the following prompt: What are the implications of technology advancement today? Focus your argument on a specific area within a detailed non-fiction essay. See below for details. Logistics: Together we created a list of topics for you to choose from, but you are certainly free to write about something that is not on our list (with approval). No more than 4 people can work on a particular topic. Because the intent of this essay is both to explain and make an argument, you should only write in the 3 rd person (that is: do not use the word “I” in your essay). Requirements: 3-5 pages 4 paragraph minimum 1-3 non-fiction resources 4 quotes, MLA formatted Works cited page Items to be turned in: outline/prewriting , rough draft, and final copy with a work cited page Schedule: Monday 8/26 & Tuesday 8/27: Vocab Unit 1, Introduce unit, choose topics, begin research Wednesday 8/28 & Thursday 8/29: Vocab Unit 1, Thesis Statement and Evidence, Research - Have computers Homework: Research articles for topics that are interesting to you Friday 8/30: Vocab Quiz #1,

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
