Axia College Material Appendix E Critical Analysis Forms Fill out one form for each source. Source 1 Title and Citation:The Internet Connects People al., Jeffrey Boase et. "The Internet Connects People." Opposing Viewpoints: Technology and Society . Ed. David Haugen and Susan Musser. Detroit: Greenhaven Press, 2007. Opposing Viewpoints Resource Center . Gale. Apollo Library-Univ of Phoenix. 25 Apr. 2010 ( link ) 1 Identify the principal issue presented by the source. The Internet actually helps , not prevents, people to stay connected more. 2 Identify any examples of bias presented by the author. If none exist, explain how you determined this. This particular author is a bit biased toward the pros of the internet, pointing out as much as possible and not considering the possibilities of things not necessarily working out the way originally planned (i.e. someone not receiving an e-mail). 3 Identify any areas that are vague or ambiguous. If none exist, explain how you determined this. The author does a surprisingly good job of going deep into the subject matter and letting me see from a perspective seldom spoken of. I originally leaned heavily the opposite on this argument, so I was able to learn a lot myself. I was somewhat swayed. 4 Do you find the source credible? Explain your reasoning. Yes I find this source credible. Many statistics were given with cross-references which I had never seen before. 5 Identify and name any rhetorical devices used by the author. If none exist, explain how you determined this. The author did make a quick stereotype about the internet being tied originally to just "wizards and geeks", however most of the article stays rather straight- forward. 6 Identify and name any fallacies used by the author. If none exist, explain how you determined this. I see the straw man fallacy being used here, because the author keeps referring to traditional manners that are now being offered digitally, etc., and capitalizing on the fact. .. 7 State one argument made by the author. The internet makes it easier for people to get help with important issues. CRT 205

8 Identify the premises and conclusion of the argument. Eight specific key issues are examined and surveyed about receiving assistance, and the internet was proven to help 3.1 to 2.0. 9 Is the author’s argument valid or invalid, sound or unsound, strong or weak? Explain how you determined this. I feel the author's argument is valid, by statistics clearly given with reputable proof. I also see the argument as sound. However it could be a bit stronger if the author used more real-world examples. 10 Does the author use moral reasoning? If not, explain how you determined this. Yes, I see moral reasoning with this argument. This may have been established by lack of information, and beating a dead horse on some of the strong points, but the author stays moral in my opinion.
